Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master In the laconic preface he added to the publication of his novel in 1891, Oscar Wilde responds to the virulent criticism of his work by the champions of morality. He asserts that an artist creates beautiful things, and that cultivated people make beautiful interpretations of beautiful things. On the other hand, those who make hideous interpretations of works of art are both wrong and guilty.
