      Now it seems to me that love of some kind is the only possible explanation of the extraordinary amount of suffering that there is in the world I cannot conceive of any other explanation I am convinced that there is no other, and that if the world has indeed, as I have said, been built of sorrow, it has been built by the hands of love, because in no other way could the soul of man, for whom the world was made, reach the full stature of its perfection Pleasure for the beautiful body, but pain for [...]

      Two magnificent texts by Oscar Wilde, particularly poignant The Ballad of Reading Gaol, the same place where Wilde was imprisoned, tells the true story and drama of a soldier sentenced for having murdered his wife De Profundis is a long letter addressed to Lord Douglas by Oscar Wilde who reproaches him for having abandoned him to his fate Oscar Wilde, who had accustomed us to very beautiful reflections on life and his aesthetics, gives us here a sort of last very moving testimony that will be pu [...]

      It is funny how sometimes books come at you and when I say you, I mean me , sometimes almost in clusters It is almost like there really is a God and He has infinite knowledge of the universe and knows just what it is that you need to be thinking about right about now, except He is curiously shy and so He doesn t like to come right out with it and tell you directly what s on His mind So, instead, He leaves books lying around in places where you are fairly likely to trip over them and then pick th [...]

      I am giving this a lower rating than it technically deserves, due to some of my personal beliefs that are important enough to me that I am unwilling to ignore them in a review where they are so entirely relevant to the book at hand As a piece of writing, it is several synonyms for luscious and tragically chest stabby However, underneath the primary and quite applicable to post 3 decades on Earth me themes of looking back on many a wasted year and regretting a lot of the selfish and short sighted [...]

      When faced with the abyss before you, is there only emptiness or is there a new beginning This is an intensely personal examination of Wilde s journey during incarceration It follows the Stages of Grief and intertwines the religious with art It has some incredible observations that made me examine my own thoughts and assumptions.But it is a very unimaginative nature that only cares for people on their pedestals A pedestal may be a very unreal thing A pillory is a terrific reality They should hav [...]

      A piece of beautiful, honest, philosophical writing that flows from a chastened soul.Passages that tug at my heartstrings To regret one s own experiences is to arrest one s own development To deny one s own experiences is to put a lie into the lips of one s own life It is no less than a denial of the soul Truth in art is the unity of a thing with itself the outward rendered expressive of the inward the soul made incarnate the body instinct with spirit Now it seems to me that love of some kind is [...]

      In the letter Wilde wrote to his friend Robert Ross enclosing this extended essay he finishes with a beautiful image On the other side of the prison wall there are some poor black soot besmirched trees which are just breaking out into buds of an almost shrill gren I know quite well what they are going through They are finding expression.These lovely few sentences capture quite marvelously the thrust of this book It is an account of Wilde s re birth from in amidst the degradation and cruel shamin [...]

      i m not okay Society, as we have constituted it, will have no place for me, has none to offer but Nature, whose sweet rains fall on unjust and just alike, will have clefts in the rocks where I may hide, and secret valleys in whose silence I may weep undisturbed She will hang the night with stars so that I may walk abroad in the darkness without stumbling, and send the wind over my footprints so that none may track me to my hurt she will cleanse me in great waters, and with bitter herbs make me w [...]

      I won t write a solid review for this because I just poured out my energy in a review with terrible grammar and no good points Just a forewarning, y all.When I read this, all I could really do was think about Oscar Wilde s conditions when writing this He wrote it in prison I can t imagine he had it very nice there Yet, he manages to write a perfectly Oscar Wilde y letter, with beautiful prose and good insights I don t really want to talk about it any just read it If you like Oscar Wilde I person [...]

      Con una honestidad brutalmente a flor de piel, Oscar Wilde escribe esta carta a su amante Alfred Bosie Douglas con la convicci n de haber sido extremadamente castigado por la sociedad Una aut ntica Nota desde el Subsuelo, donde el dolor y el sufrimiento de uno de los escritores m s sensibles de la literatura universal nos da la sensaci n de estar leyendo los sentimientos de un coraz n en carne viva.

    16. Christopher on said:

      Beautiful, fascinating, poetic, and heartbreaking, Wilde becomes the spectator of his own tragedy in De Profundis and attempts a sort of mystical Confiteor to make sense of the suffering of his soul.When first I was put into prison some people advised me to try and forget who I was It was ruinous advice It is only by realizing what I am that I have found comfort of any kind Now I am advised by others to try on my release to forget that I have ever been in a prison at all I know that would be equ [...]

      Part IWow Well, first off, this was excellent Valentine s Day reading, and when I say that I m only about 64% sarcastic If De Profundis shows anything it shows that love is complicated and however much I wanted to shake Oscar Wilde and yell You re right to be upset He s horrible He s not worth it I know he wouldn t listen to me.On the other hand, I can t imagine being on the receiving end of this letter and keeping my cool, even if I just had a teaspoonful of heart.Part IIThis is what makes me t [...]

      This is a fabulous book I loved it when I read it twenty or so years ago but I appreciate it now for its literary worth That s the difference.Nice to see that it s still being read by my friends here.

    20. julieta on said:

      This book is just so painful It gets difficult a times, but then at others Wilde makes something much bigger of his woes He flies in philosophy, metaphysic ideas Love, hate, hurt, sorrow, Christ, friendship, family, he speaks of so many things Yet you are left with a very sad feeling If this is what may happen to someone so great, what is left for mere mortals like us Is love to be so cruel

    21. Andrew Calderon on said:

      This book in reality, it is a letter written to Lord Alfred Douglas is brimming with beautiful passages, intelligent ideas, and honest emotion I haven t read something this transfixing and powerful in quite some time It truly reveals Wilde s mastery of language, and his profound understanding on the human psyche I found myself wondering if he knew that this would be read in the future by people other than Lord Alfred Douglas It wouldn t change my experience of the book, but it was just so beauti [...]

      I never would have expected a treatise on the meaning of suffering and sorrow, the path to the soul, and a meditation upon Christ as the first true artist poet from a man imprisoned for homosexuality It was a pleasure to read this letter that emerged out of Oscar Wilde s two year imprisonment for illicit behavior How one of his life of leisure, wealth, and decadence could find the path to his soul and the beauty in suffering and the value of nature while imprisoned in a jail cell for two years i [...]
