Hello, do you know any interesting facts about Oscar Wilde? Thank you!
that’s a rhetorical question, right?
he strongly advocated for socialism
he liked to decorate using flowers and blue china. the drawing room of
his home with constance and the kids had dragons painted on the ceiling
and peacock feathers laid into the plaster on the walls
his favorite flower was the sunflower 🌻
his tomb in paris is covered in lipstick kisses, and even though you are
now required to pay a hefty fine if you get caught in the act, people
today still kiss his grave in secret anyway (a life goal honestly)
he had three middle names, no musical talent, and little ability to make a good first impression. he was so self-conscious about his teeth that he often talked with a hand in front of his mouth
he was once involved in a love triangle with dracula author bram stoker
he had a steamy, gay one night stand with walt whitman
his favorite drinks were brandy and absinthe, and if he liked you upon meeting you he’d more likely than not gift you with a cigarette case
