Posted on March 4, Updated on March 9, This relationship formed the seed for the later obscenity trials which ruined Wilde. Queensberry charged Wilde with 15 counts of sodomy involving 12 boys, 10 of whom were named Libel action suit was held on 3 April , and Wilde ultimately lost, condemning him to two years hard labor.

Throughout the process of the trial and ultimate sentence, Wilde served time in five different prisons in the British system. During the trial, Wilde was held in Holloway and Newgate Prisons, before being transferred for his sentence to three different institutions: Pentonville, Wandsworth, and finally Reading Goal Gagnier Although conditions fluctuated slightly between these different systems, the prison theory behind them was largely the same: solitary confinement and unproductive hard labor.

The labor of oakum picking involved unrolling lengths. The prison officials also ordered that Wilde was not to talk to any other prisoners, and that he be kept in solitary confinement in his cell.

Solitary confinement ultimately led Wilde to fear insanity. The process of writing one sheet a day has been questioned by many literary historians, who have written that several sheets appeared to be fair copies and that only two of the twenty sheets of writing ended with a complete sentence Wilde wrote to his friend and former lover Robert Ross referred to in De Profundis as Robbie before his release, telling him to publish the letter.

The letter to Robbie, dated 1 April , reads as follows:. As soon as you…have read it, I want you to have it carefully copied for me…I want you to be my literary executor after my death, and to have complete control over my plays, books and papers…. When you have read the letter you will see the psychological explanation of a course of conduct that from the outside seems a combination of absolute idiocy with vulgar bravado….

Of course from one point of view I know that on the day of my release I shall be merely passing form one prison into another, and there are times when the whole world seems to me no larger than my cell, and as full of terror for me….

As regards the mode of copying:…I think that the only thing to do is to be thoroughly modern, and to have it type-written…I wish the copy to be done not on tissue paper but on good paper such as is used for plays, and a wide rubricated margin should be left for corrections…it may be spoken of as the Epistola: In Carcere et Vinculis. Out of this material, Robert Ross published an abridged version in This text is based off a carbon copy of the original which Robert Ross made initially Small 2.

This version itself was proven to have many inaccuracies to the manuscript, which was later printed by Sir Rupert Hart-Davis in It revolves. It seems to circle round one centre of pain. The paralyzing immobility of a life, every circumstance of which is regulated after an unchangeable pattern, so that we eat and drink and walk…according to the inflexible laws of an iron formula…A week later, I am transferred here. Three more months go over and my mother dies.

Since Wilde often stayed at a particular prison for three months at a time, can we see other examples of prison life showing through the work? Wilde continually indicates the connection between himself as an Artist and his Art. Can we separate art from Wilde the Artist?

Wilde often talks about Imagination as the main way to cope with his psychological and physical taxations at prison. The Imagination can transcend them, and move in a sphere of ideal existences. Things, also, are in their essence what we choose to make them. A thing is, according to the mode in which one looks at it.

How do other characters in Decadent literature, such as Des Esseintes, construct their reality through imagination? Wilde discusses Sorrow at many points in the text, specifically relating to his prison experience and to his shame over his downfall. Pain, unlike Pleasure, wears no mask. Truth in Art is not any correspondence between the essential idea and the accidental existence; it is not the resemblance of shape to shadow, or of the form mirrored in the crystal to the form itself…Truth in Art is the unity of the thing with itself: the outward rendered expressive of the inward: the soul made incarnate: the body instinct with spirit.

Oscar Wilde and the French Decadents

Its joy, like the joy of the intellect, is to feel itself alive. The aim of Love is to love: no more, and no less. You were my It presents for the first time the complete textual history of one of the most famous love letters ever written. It argues, however, that Wilde's prison document may be seen not just as the basis of a letter, but also as an unfinished literary work which he intended for public consumption at some future date. Such a case is made by placing in the public domain, often for the first time, a number of different works, derived from different texts, each of which bears witness to Wilde's multiple intentions for his prison document. The commentary to this edition sets Wilde's story of his own life in De Profundis against the testimony of other players in his drama.

In its first half Wilde recounts their previous relationship and extravagant lifestyle which eventually led to Wilde's conviction and imprisonment for gross indecency. He indicts both Lord Alfred's vanity and his own weakness in acceding to those wishes. In the second half, Wilde charts his spiritual development in prison and identification with Jesus Christ , whom he characterises as a romantic, individualist artist. Wilde wrote the letter between January and March , close to the end of his imprisonment. Contact had lapsed between Douglas and Wilde and the latter had suffered from his close supervision, physical labour, and emotional isolation. Nelson, the new prison governor, thought that writing might be more cathartic than prison labour. He was not allowed to send the long letter which he was allowed to write "for medicinal purposes"; each page was taken away when completed, and only at the end could he read it over and make revisions.
