To drift with every passion till my soul / Is a stringed lute on which all winds can play, / Is it for this that I have given away / Mine ancient wisdom, and austere control?

Oscar Wilde
 
He is most famous for his sophisticated, brilliantly witty plays and also for his eccentricity in dress, tastes and manners. His first published work, Poems (1881), was well received and served as a springboard for his 1882 United States lecture tour.
