"Surely Wilde's was an astonishing combination: so devoted a love of beauty, and so unerring an eye for comedy; as though Keats and Sheridan had been reincarnated in one man, One might add Beau Brummell, and one gains a rough generalization of the complexity that was Oscar Wilde. Keats, Sheridan and Beau Brummell. Not that he was so eminent as any one of these in their own special characteristic; but it was the combination of all three in one man, plus his own extraordinary individuality, that made him an original figure, made him - Oscar Wilde." - Richard Le Galliene. p. .
