Although Oscar Wilde earned a degree at Oxford and did most of his mature writing in London in the 1880s and 90s, he grew up in Dublin and enjoyed great popularity there for his literary success. Richie and Sara Goulding have one of his early poems framed over their bedstead: "Requiescat," a lament for his younger sister.
