This chapter analyses the contents and message of Oscar Wilde's Intentions, which it considers an indicator of cultural positions and attitudes. It compares what Wilde and the reviewers said about the book. The chapter attempts to locate the essays' place in Wilde's social strategies and suggests that the fractured structure of the book is comparable to the discontinuities Wilde's work explores at the level of individual personality.

Keywords:   Intentions, Oscar Wilde, cultural positions, cultural attitudes, social strategies, individual personality
