Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish writer and poet, who became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s.

Oscar was present at the formation of the Hermetic Lodge of the Theosophical Society when his mother, Irish folklorist Lady Wilde, joined the T.S.[1] Wilde attended numerous Theosophical Society functions with his mother and in 1888 his wife Constance entered the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, of which W. B. Yeats was a member.
