This is an abridgment of Reviews by half or more, but is still more of Oscar Wilde's journalism than is included in most "complete" editions. I would have to go back through the 400 + pages of the other collection to see if any particular gems were omitted. I know the two grand essays which came at the summit of that solid gold mountain, "A Chinese Sage" and "Walter Pater's Appreciations," are both here. Then again, so is a long essay on the history of embroidery. Two essays apiece on George Sand and William Morris. Yes, come to think of it, I would make a different selection!

The very last part of this book is a section called "Sententiae," or particularly sparkling extracts from the missing reviews. Since Wilde himself constructed some of his best reviews with choice extracts, let me offer a few which give the flavor of this unfailingly delightful collection:

(Pall Mall Gazette, December 16, 1887.)
In society, says Mr. Mahaffy, every civilized man and woman ought to feel it their duty to say something, even when there is hardly anything to be said, and, in order to encourage this delightful art of brilliant chatter, he has published a social guide without which no débutante or dandy should ever dream of going out to dine. Not that Mr. Mahaffy’s book can be said to be, in any sense of the word, popular. In discussing this important subject of conversation, he has not merely followed the scientific method of Aristotle which is, perhaps, excusable, but he has adopted the literary style of Aristotle for which no excuse is possible.


For my own part, I must confess that it was not until I heard Sarah Bernhardt in Phèdre that I absolutely realized the sweetness of the music of Racine. As for Mr. Birrell’s statement that actors have the words of literature for ever on their lips, but none of its truths engraved on their hearts, all that one can say is that, if it be true, it is a defect which actors share with the majority of literary critics.


I have seen many audiences more interesting than the actors, and have often heard better dialogue in the foyer than I have on the stage. The Dramatic College might take up the education of spectators as well as that of players, and teach people that there is a proper moment for the throwing of flowers as well as a proper method. Life remains eternally unchanged; it is art which, by presenting it to us under various forms, enables us to realize its many-sided mysteries, and to catch the quality of its most fiery-coloured moments. The originality, I mean, which we ask from the artist, is originality of treatment, not of subject. It is only the unimaginative who ever invents. The true artist is known by the use he makes of what he annexes, and he annexes everything.
