Read the following annotated selections from Oscar Wilde’s “The Decay of Lying”
The Decay of Lying: An Observation by Oscar Wilde (1891)
Part one:
We explored the ways in which Byron creates a thesis about Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in his poem “To a Lady who Presented to the Author a Lock of Hair Braided with His Own And Appointed At a Night In December to meet him in The Garden.”
His thesis relies on the notion that life imitates art, which is an inversion of the mimetic proposition that art imitates life.
With this in mind, answer the following questions in 150 words or more:
Is a similar proposition (that life imitates art) also present in Wilde’s “The Decay of Lying”?
Introduce a quote from “The Decay of Lying” and analyze it to show how it supports the argument that life imitates art.
Apply this quote by Wilde to a passage from Byron. Be sure to clearly explain how and why the Wilde quote applies to the Byron passage.
Part two:
Propose your own example of life imitating art.
