Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Born in Dublin in 1854, Oscar Wilde dazzled the salons of his day with supremely witty conversation and his ardent championship of a philosophy of aestheticism. As a writer, he produced The Importance of Being Earnest, one of the finest comedies in English, and other classic plays. His one novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, is still widely read, as is "The Ballad of Reading Gaol," a powerful poetic indictment of the degradation and inhumanity of prison life.
This carefully edited volume focuses on Wilde's poetic legacy. In addition to the title poem, readers will find twenty-three other important works: "The Sphinx," "The Grave of Keats," "Requiescat," "Impression du Matin," "Panthea," "Silentium Amoris," "The Harlot's House," "To L. L." and others. While Wilde's fame rests mainly on his achievements as a dramatist and critic, these poems offer important clues to the themes and subjects that preoccupied him in his other works.

Review:
Twenty-four important works, focusing on Wilde's poetic legacy, offer important clues to themes and subjects that preoccupied this gifted writer in other works. Includes The Ballad of Reading Gaol, a powerful indictment of the degradation and inhumanity of prison life; "The Sphinx," "The Grave of Keats," "The Harlot's House," and 20 others.
