Year: 1995 Source: Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v.25, no.4, (Winter 1995), p.526-527 SIEC No: 19950343

This review describes the book as an inspiring psychobiographic study of a man who by his own words, challenges his readers to understand his own fear of disclosure. Knox’s psychoanalytic rendering of Oscar Wilde is seen as a creative & original approach to Wilde’s biography that informs the reader of the relationship between personality & artistic expression. The review notes that Knox does not directly address the meaning of the Wilde quote on suicide cited in the book’s epigraph.
