'All limitations, external or internal, are prison-walls, and life is a limitation.' Presenting the less familiar, serious Wilde before and after his fall, this volume includes The Soul of Man, a manifesto on Individualism, De Profundis, the self-analysing piece he wrote in gaol, two open letters to the Daily Chronicle on prison injustice, and The Ballad of Reading Gaol, inspired by the execution of a fellow-prisoner.show more
