This engaging summary presents an analysis of De Profundis by Oscar Wilde, a letter addressed to his lover Lord Alfred Douglas, known as Bosie, and written during his imprisonment in Reading Gaol. Wilde had been sentenced to two years’ hard labour for homosexual activity, and the letter is a poignant account of his spiritual journey while in prison and an evaluation of his turbulent relationship with Bosie. Oscar Wilde was one of the most fascinating authors of the 19th century, known as much for his witticisms as for his writing. His most notable works include the novel The Picture of Dorian Gray and the comic plays An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest.
