De Profundis by WILDE, Oscar



This short work of Wildes was written during his two year incarceration for gross indecency. This work is a letter which sorts out his life, and his love toward Lord Alfred Douglas. Wilde wrote this as a farewell letter to Douglas. (summary by Aaron Elliott) NOTE: Transcribed from the 1913 Methuen & Co. edition Note that later editions of De Profundis contained more material.
