As to other essential texts "for understanding Oscar Wilde as a dandy and a decadent" (these things are incidentals - like green carnations. I'll offer some suggestions that might augment an understanding of how he originated himself):
Yew, Taxus baccata

Wild Mushroom Hunting Little will entice me out of bed at 7.00am on a misty autumn, morning except the promise a few hours of mushroom hunting. I first stumbled on this great adventure while living in France.
Soon it will be time to go mushing again. Mushroom hunting is the quintessential autumn sport, whether it consists of sniffing out the elusive truffle from the leaf mould beneath a fine beech or parting the nettles in the hope of landing that grandest of fungi, the football-sized giant puffball. There is nothing like picking mushrooms to get in touch with the natural world.
