Publisher's Summary

Written during his time in Reading Gaol, De Profundis is Oscar Wilde's moving letter to Lord Alfred Douglas, whose relationship with Wilde led to the poet's imprisonment. Here Wilde repudiates Lord Alfred and reflects on his ordeal, acknowledging how the depths of his sorrow have helped liberate him toward a fuller, freer wisdom. Brimming with beautiful passages, De Profundis is a profound and inspiring treatise on the meaning of suffering. De Profundis is introduced by Oscar Wilde's grandson, Merlin Holland.

Sorrows

So much sorrow and self pity. Beautifully written. I was deeply engaged by Wilde’s extended comments about Christ. What a treasure!

Wilde speaks for himself

Mortal men cannot review such material, although it is very well read. Introduction is fabulous and from the authentic voice
