Read full description of the books Wilde In An Hour (Playwrights In An Hour):After a meeting with Pope Pius IX, Oscar Wilde locked himself in his room emerging only after writing a sonnet inspired by and dedicated to the Pope. Hours later, he visited the protestant cemetery where the Romantic poet, John Keats, was buried. Kneeling at his grave, Wilde ostentatiously declared it to be the holiest place in Rome. Did Oscar Wilde contradict himself? Did he contain multitudes? He did, to understate the matter --- and those complexities were best expressed in his great theatrical works like Lady Windermere s Fan, Salome, and, of course, The Importance of Being Earnest.
Setting the playwright in context to his personal life, social, historical and political events, other writers of influence, and more, you will quickly gain a deep understanding of Wilde and the plays he wrote. Read Wilde in an Hour and experience his plays like never before. Know the playwright, love the play!

Emily graduated in philosophy in 6/2009 from Dartmouth. Her purpose combines Farsi fluency w/experience as Dartmouth Review editor: she'll explore Middle East democratization thru the lens of Iranian college press freedom, answering: “How does the Iranian government’s pragmatism & nascent inkling towards liberalism translate into policy on censorship & expression?” She'll become a student herself, living with relatives & registering at either the U of Tehran or of Esfahan. Thru relations w/students running newspapers, blogs & other media, she'll determine “the extent to which debate & dissent are features of campus life, both in & out of the classroom.” She'll present her findings to the State Dept & DC think tank scholars, policy makers & academics. Ultimately, she wants a graduate degree & career centered on Middle Eastern foreign policy. Her Wm E. Simon Fellowship for Noble Purpose helps her begin this work.
