I have studied his texts thoroughly and I know him well. Might other, hitherto unknown, letters of his be discovered in the future? You never know, but I doubt that any very important and unknown document of his will be found. We are more at the stage of reassessing what we already know.
But I'm always cautious; many people might have letters of Wilde's in their possession, How was the book received? Very well, in England. But that is natural, because in England there is a lot of literature about Wilde and some may feel it has reached saturation point. There is an impressive degree of interest in Wilde in Greece. In , I asked at a bookshop in Athens which of his titles were available. Much to my amazement, there were more than in England - even old and less well-known titles. He had very close ties to Greece. He had studied the Ancient Greek language and literature, and the influence is apparent in many of his works.
He had adopted the Greek notion of fate, and a pagan rather than a Christian perception of life is evident in them.
He believed, as did the ancient Greeks, that fate chose some people. Is it an exaggeration to say Oscar Wilde was a phenomenon?
He is indeed a literary phenomenon, in the sense that even today he is widely read and accessible. He wrote in a simple but powerful way. He expressed himself clearly and courageously. His prose is often poetic but without ornamentation, with an internal rhythm that makes it enjoyable to read. He addresses everyone. In comparison with other great writers, such as Joyce, Wilde does not only address intellectuals. How would you describe him, in a word? He was a rebel.
Not only sexually but also socially. He didn't do what was expected. He believed conformity was undignified.
