Resist Everything Except Temptation: The Anarchist Philosophy of Oscar Wilde

by Kristian Williams Author and Alan Moore Foreword

The renowned wit, humor, and literary excellence of Oscar Wilde, combined with his ruthless persecution as a gay man has made him not only a cultural icon, but a queer hero as well. However, many of the philosophies of this cherished figure have largely been ignored in scholarship. In this explorative work by Kristian Williams, Wilde's celebrity is stripped away and his more radical beliefs are explored. Discover the anarchist politics as well as the progressive theories of class struggle, sex, morality, and individualism behind this beloved author and one of the greatest intellects of the modern age.
