This review is from: De Profundis (Kindle Edition)
Oscar Wilde, imprisoned for homosexuality, writes a public letter to his partner, in what then was a crime. There is no bitterness in this book, I expected an attack on Bosie, the marquis of Queensberry's son, Wilde's lover, for not pulling strings to save him from prison in Reading Gaol but it is a highly philosophical work showing how he comes to terms with confinement and how this is a positive influence on his life. Personally, I don't want to go to prison to encounter the same experience but as a book / letter to make you think this is well worth reading.
