Oscar Wilde Last Words


Oscar Wilde’s last words before his death were often reported as…

“My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or other of us has got to go,” “I am dying beyond my means,” and, “I can’t even afford to die.”

His real last words were…

“And what have I to live for?”

This was his response to his one time lover Robert Ross when he warned that if he drank absinthe it would be poison to him.
