About the Book
Shorter Prose Pieces is a collection of lectures and quotes by Oscar Wilde, in which he talks about various topics and themes. In Slaves of Fashion, Wilde criticizes the evils of corsetry, and in Woman's Dress, he advises women to suspend the weight and reduce the number of layers of clothing and make it more hygienic. He advises them to wear more antique dresses. Other pieces such as Costume, Phrases, and Philosophies for the Use of the Young and The American Invasion are also included in the volume.

An eminent Irish playwright, novelist and poet, Wilde belonged to the late Victorian Era. Known for his role in Aesthetic and Decadent movements and his barbed wit, he was imprisoned on account of gross indecency for writing on taboo subjects.
