Collected Poems of Oscar Wilde
autor Oscar Wilde | editura Wordsworth Editions Ltd | 2000 | 224 pagini | 9781853264535
With an Introduction, Notes and Bibliography by Anne Varty Royal Holloway, University of London.



Wilde, glamorous and notorious, 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.

Prefata de Mircea Mihaies. "De Profundis", initial o scrisoare scrisa din inchisoare si adresata de Wilde lordului Alfred Douglas, a devenit in timp un text de referinta de sine statator, o opera literara.

The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray
» autor Oscar Wilde | editura Penguin Books | 2007 | 255 pagini
A lush, cautionary tale of a life of vileness and deception or a loving portrait of the aesthetic impulse run rampant? Why not both? After Basil Hallward paints a beautiful, young man's portrait, his subject's frivolous wish that the picture change and he remain the same comes true. Dorian Gray's picture grows aged and corrupt while he continues to appear fresh and innocent. After he kill...
