Oscar Wilde: The Critic As Artist

A two-part meditation that forms as a dialogue between two friends, this conversation-as-essay explores the significance of the audience, and critical reception of a work of art, to the meaning of the work itself. Key to this reception is the sensitive observer, in the familiar persona of the refined aesthete. Originally published in Intentions (1891), Wilde’s only collection of criticism, the essay is reprinted here.
