It was fantastic! Oscar Wilde is an author that I love, but have not read many works by. Nicholas Frankel was an amazing lecturer and was the push I needed to finally go and begin Wilde's "Picture of Dorian Gray" (especially the uncensored version edited by Prof. Frankel himself). A wonderful evening, and a fascinating lecture on authors and their inspirations.
