Wilde about Oscar!

This statue in Merrion Square Park is worth a look as it is unique because it is in color and not just a lump of metal standing in a square. In my travels to seek out literary haunts and memorials, I was happiest when I finally made it to Dublin to check up on one of my all-time favorite writers—Oscar Wilde.

He has written some amazing stories such as The Picture of Dorian Gray, plays such as The Importance of Being Ernest, and even essays such as The Critic as Artist. He is probably best known for his quotes however and my favorite is, "We are all lying in the gutter, but some of us are looking up at the stars."
