About This Book

Oscar Wilde's emotionally raw manuscript details the inner turmoil surrounding his relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas following his controversial arrest and conviction for gross indecency It's an honest and intimate look at the author in his most vulnerable state.

Oscar Wilde spent two years in prison from 1895 to 1897. It was during this time that he wrote a 50, 000-word letter to his former lover and friend, Lord Alfred Douglas. Published under the title, De Profundis it's an exploration of Wilde and Douglas' relationship which was fueled by passion and disfunction. The writer criticizes Douglas' vanity and lack of integrity, while revealing his growth and spiritual development.

De Profundis is arguably one of Oscar Wilde's most candid works. It was greatly affected by his physical and mental isolation during confinement. Despite his conditions, Wilde managed to produce a raw and unfiltered piece about love, loss and spiritual renewal.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of De Profundis is both modern and readable.
