This article discusses Peter Ackroyd's fictionalized autobiography, The Last Testament of Oscar Wilde. It suggests that the text opens up significant questions about biographical and autobiographical interpretation, and more specific issues concerning the relationship between Wilde's own self-fashioning as a celebrated public figure and the social construction of sexualities in late nineteenth-century Britain.
