Did Oscar read Rumi...?

I wonder if Oscar Wilde had any exposure to Sufi poetry, translated from Persian or other languages, and what he might have thought about it? I don't know what Classicists studied back then, but I wonder if they read anything outside the western canon, including Eastern mystical writings...
