The Last Testament of Oscar Wilde is a fictional autobiography written by Peter Ackroyd and published in 1983. Ackroyd thinks that there`s no fundamental difference between biography/historiography and fiction in that each of them is a form of story-telling. Using very realistic narrative methods of conventional British fiction as well as various postmodern narrative techniques, Ackroyd tells us of the last days of Oscar Wilde, the Victorian writer. The novel creates a certain image of ``reality`` by taking``real``names of people, places and events which are historically verifiable. Ackroyd-Oscar Wilde himself in the novel-represents the historical Oscar Wilde imitating Wilde`s tone and style as if practising ventriloquism. Oscar Wilde, the Anglo-Irish writer, is also well known for a great aesthete and social critic of nineteenth-century Britain. The verdict passed upon Wilde`s scandalous homosexuality in May 1895 destroyed his reputation irrecoverably, and dragged him down from a great artist of originality and genius to miserable contemptibility for the remainder of his days, which led him to an earlydeath in Paris away from home. A colourfully-told fiction exerts a deep influence on readers and a really good story owns inner emotionality, so the readers easily forget checking the story against the facts. Going further than skillfully telling really good stories, Ackroyd explores inside Oscar Wilde making readers imagine variously potential truths behind the ostensible reality of the dead writer. In the narrative by Ackroyd, the fictional Oscar Wilde narrating the story perfectly replaces the real Oscar Wilde and beautifully excusesnotonly his aesthetic stance but also even the disgraceful personal history. The reader unwittingly becomes willing to sympathise with Oscar Wilde no matter what he did.
