Constance’s £ 250 salary made it possible for both to live a luxurious life. The couple had two children from this marriage: Cyril (1885) and Vyvyan (1886).

  • According to some supporters, this movement led him to a strangulation attempt and the dissolution of his chamber in River Cherwell, but aestheticism became more familiar and ordinary among the people of thought. Some publications, such as Springfield Republican, after Wilde talked about aestheticism during the Boston tour, decided that her understanding was an act of celebrity rather than praise for beauty and aesthetics. Wilde’s clothing style has also become the focus of critics like Higginson. In a letter to Unmanly Manhood, Higginson noted that Wilde’s apparition was likely to affect the behavior of men and women, and that poetry would bring men closer to the feminine scandal. In addition, he explored Wilde’s literature, his homosexuality, and his personal image, revealing his lifestyle and his works as immoral.

Wilde later ironically commented on Pater’s depressive feelings: Pater’s death story was, “Would he ever have lived?” Pater’s style in Dorian Gray’s Portresi says, “All arts are actually useless.” He said. This comment should have been read in literary sense because it was created by the philosopher Victor Cousin, “Art is for art.” Ideology. In 1879, Wilde began giving aesthetic lessons in London.

That’s why Richard D’Oyly Carte invited Wilde to a series of conferences in America. D’Oyly Carte believed that this trip would further improve Patience’s success. This trip began on January 3, 1882, when Wilde arrived at the US via SS Arizona. Despite this lack of evidence, Wilde has a customs officer “I have nothing to declare except Deham.” .
