During the last twenty years of his life, Oscar Wilde was interviewed more than two hundred times. These interviews are full of Wilde’s trademark wit and his observations on all manner of topics, from architecture to acting, and from painting to politics. But only about a quarter have been reprinted since the nineteenth century, and dozens have never been cited by Wilde scholars.

From 1 March 2022 Oscar Wilde: The Complete Interviews edited by Rob Marland will be available for purchase. Volume One (460 pages, hardcover ISBN 978-3-9824134-0-2, paperback ISBN 978-3-9824134-2-6) includes an introduction and the 1880–1882 interviews with comprehensive annotations.
