Collected Poems of Oscar Wilde

Brand: Wordsworth Editions   |   Status: Hết hàng

'I have enjoyed this book very much as I had never before read any of Wilde's poetry and it is good to have his poems collected together into one book. It is also very helpful to have explanations at the back as to what some of the words mean and the introduction is also helpful. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Wilde's work.' - Amazon Reviewer

With an Introduction, Notes and Bibliography by Anne Varty, Royal Holloway, University of London.

WILDE, GLAMOROUS AND NOTORIUS, more famous as a playwright or prisoner than as a poet, invites readers of his verse to meet an unknown and intimate figure. The poetry of his formative years includes the haunting elegy to his young sister and the grieving lyric at the death of his father. The religious drama of his romance with Rome is captured here, as well as its resolution in his renewed love of ancient Greece.

He explores forbidden sexual desires, pays homage to the great theatre stars and poets of his day, observes cityscapes with impressionist intensity. His final masterpiece, The Ballad of Reading Gaol, tells the painful story of his own prison experience and calls for universal compassion.


This edition of Wilde's verse presents the full range of his achievement as a poet.
