Speranza: Oscar’s Mama
02 December 2021

We are pleased to present a talk by Christopher Fitz-Simon on Jane Francesca Elgee, later Mrs William Wilde, later still Lady Wilde, who was born in Wexford 200 years ago. A poet who wrote inflammatory patriotic verse for The Nation newspaper, she was better known in the world of literature during their lifetimes than her now much more celebrated son – upon whose life she cast such an extraordinary spell.

This talk took place as part of a series of events coinciding with the exhibition All Right on the Night celebrating the work of Anne Makower and Christopher Fitz-Simon in theatre, opera, television and radio. The exhibition can be enjoyed online at https://libraries.dlrcoco.ie/events-and-news/online-exhibition#all-right-on-the-night

My Grandfather and Oscar Wilde
02 December 2021

In association with the exhibition All Right on the Night, Anne Makower gave a talk on the Makower family and how they came from Poland to set up a textiles business in London in the mid19th century. Anne’s grandfather Stanley Makower was a writer/journalist and Anne discussed the correspondence between Stanley and Oscar Wilde who was highly enthusiastic about Stanley’s most celebrated novel, The Mirror of Music.
