Oscar Wilde is a mirror. Wrote an English literary critic a little over three years ago, when three heavyweight and extremely voluminous books about this writer appeared almost simultaneously. Every “critic”, according to Kate Hext, who teaches in Exeter in South West England, every professional literary critic, would see themselves in Wilde. As Holy Oscar. Or as Irish. As a verbal firecracker or a classicist or a socialist or a martyr for the rights of homosexuals. “Wild Industry” is based precisely on this prismatic, endlessly reproducing diversity.
