Oscar Wilde died in 1901 in Paris. He had fled to Paris, after he was released from prison in England. In 1895, he had been accused of homosexuality by the 8th Marquess of Queensberry (who was in fact the father of his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas). At this time, homosexuality was a criminal offence and he was sent to prision with hard labour.
Oscar Wilde was in fact married. He also had two sons from his marriage, but was certainly bi-sexual, although some regard his marriage as simply being a veneer in order to be socially accepted.
He was famous for his drawing room comedies which focussed on some of the hypocrisy of Victorian culture, such as An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest. He wrote only one novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray. However, he also wrote and published a variety of poems and childrens stories.
