De Profundis does not resemble any of the other works that made Wilde famous and it's a work that often seems to make critics uncomfortable. Perhaps justly so: in the end it's a response to Wilde's imprisonment for homosexuality. In our modern context, that makes the work easy to look away from -- but it also speaks to things that concern and disturb many people, even today.

From the Inside Flap:

Written from Wilde's prison cell at Reading Gaol to his friend and lover Lord Alfred Douglas, "De Profundis explodes the conventions of the traditional love letter and offers a scathing indictment of Douglas's behavior, a mournful elegy for Wilde's own lost greatness, and an impassioned plea for reconciliation. At once a bracingly honest account of ruinous attachment and a profound meditation on human suffering, "De Profundis is a classic of gay literature. Richard Ellmann calls "De Profundis "a love letter...One of the greatest, and the longest, ever written."

This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition contains newly commissioned notes.

From the Back Cover:

"Displays the insight, honesty, and unself-conscious style of a great writer."
--W. H. Auden
