    Frank Harris, a journalist and editor, delighted in Oscar Wilde's genial wit and self-assurance. Wilde's verbal charms evoked Harris' financial and emotional support when Victorian England disdained the playwright for his paganism and imprisoned him for "homosexual offenses". Harris relates the proceedings of Wilde's trial and the malice that sent him to France after release from prison.

    Notorious Frank Harris in his own lifetime at the beginning of the 20th century was an editor, journalist, and publisher - a well known personality both professionally and personally as his aggression and bravado made him larger than life. However, it is undoubtedly his detailed scandalous account of his sexual exploits that remain his lasting legacy. Leslie Grantham's reading admirably captures this vivid depiction of his many erotic encounters.

    Between 1895 and 1897 Oscar Wilde served a prison sentence for offences "of gross indecency". Most of this time was spent at Reading Gaol, where Wilde encountered another prisoner, Harles Thomas Wooldridge, sentenced to death for the murder of his wife. Wooldrige was hanged at the gaol on 7th July, 1896. Wilde wrote the poem in France in 1897 after his release from prison. The poem is a long reflection on the inequity and ineffectiveness of statutory punishment and the redeeming power of the Christian message of forgiveness.
