We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for BALLAD OF READING GAOL BY C.3.3. by [Wilde Oscar].

Description:

First edition, one of 800 copies printed on handmade paper. 8vo, publisher's original quarter buff cloth over mustard coloured cloth covered boards, the spine lettered in gilt. [8] pp. plus 31 numbered leaves, printed and paginated on the recto only. A fine copy, only a hint of mellowing to the buff cloth. THE FIRST EDITION, LIMITED TO 800 COPIES ON FINE, HANDMADE PAPER. Inspired by his experiences while in prison and written while in exile in France, THE BALLAD OF READING GAOL was Wilde's last artistic gasp. Because of his sobering position at the time, the poem is free from a great deal of the affectation that colored his earlier work. "Had [it] been written a hundred years ago, it would have been printed as a broadside and sold in the streets by the balladmongers; it is so common as that, and so great as that" (Jackson, The Eighteen-Nineties, p. 99). ".He did not wring his hands, as do Those witless men who dare To try to rear the changeling Hope In the cave of black Despair: He only looked upon the sun, And drank the morning sun. He did not wring his hands nor weep, Nor did he peek or pine, But he drank the air as though it held Some healthful anodyne; With open mouth he drank the sun As though it had been wine!.".
