"A thoughtful, often quite delightful meditation upon Wilde, wit, and the nature of language in general." - S.I. Salamensky, author of The Modern Art of Influence and the Spectacle of Oscar Wilde   
"The Evolution of Wilde's Wit makes a powerful case for Wilde as a modern critical thinker, while it supplies an invaluable education in the history of wit and humor. Gantar clarifies the full implications of Wilde's epigrams, showing how they have always lived by exposing the tyrannical possibilities of language. Continuously graceful, Gantar's writing is also by turns meticulously accurate, entertaining, and profound." - Robert Combs, Professor, English, George Washington University, USA
