Sample of Related History & Literature on Shmoop


  1. The Life of Oscar Wilde
    The Picture of Dorian Gray makes a lot more sense if you know about Oscar Wilde, who led a controversial life (at least, for the 1800s) and can still provide enough interesting fodder for generations of students to discuss.

  2. Romeo and Juliet
    Quite a few of Shakespeare's plays are worthy of review, but Romeo and Juliet is especially important considering it's as a disastrous Juliet when Sybil dashes Dorian's romantic feelings for her.
