      It is well to have learned that. Those who have much are often greedy; those who have little always share. Even the finest and most self-sacrificing emotions have to be paid for. When I was brought down from my prison to the Court of Bankruptcy, between two policemen,—waited in the long dreary corridor that, before the whole crowd, whom an action so sweet and simple hushed into silence, he might gravely raise his hat to me, as, handcuffed and with bowed head, I passed him by. As a result of his affair with Lord Alfred Douglas, Wilde was found guilty of homosexual offenses and jailed for two years.

      Also included were three other letters Wilde wrote from Reading Prison and his two letters to the editor of the Daily Chronicle written after his release. He realizes that someone like him will always be an outcast to society, but Nature, as a nurturing source of healing, will heal his wounds and purify his mind and soul. I allowed pleasure to dominate me. Your information is secure and only used for our communication with you. I have lain in prison for nearly two years. Isaacson as Warden.

      He realizes that someone like him will always be an outcast to society, but Nature, as a nurturing source of healing, will heal his wounds and purify his mind and soul. She will hang the night with stars so that I may walk abroad in the darkness without stumbling, and send the wind over my footprints so that none may track me to my hurt: she will cleanse me in great waters, and with bitter herbs make me whole. Wilde, for example, compares himself to Christ. Street, who had earlier been an intellectual opponent of the decadentshad two impressions of De Profundis: one, "that it was poignantly touching, the other it was extraordinarily and profoundly interesting". It is well to have learned that.

There has been some reordering and the omission of words, here included in square brackets". The external things of life seem to me now of no importance at all.

Only that is spiritual which makes its own form. It has come to me right out of myself, so I know that it has come at the proper time.

The Psalm has frequently been set to music, with many of the melodies written by some the world's most renowned composers, including Bach, Handel, Liszt, Mendelssohn, Mozart, as well as modern composers such as Vangelis and Leonard Bernstein.

When Wilde returned from holidays after the premieres, he found Queensberry's card at his club with the inscription: "For Oscar Wilde, posing somdomite [ sic ]".

He moves methodically toward this conclusion: his earlier antinomian attitude is re-iterated and he finds no recompense in traditional morality. Those lovely links with humanity are broken.

He wrote that: In July Ruth and I had the excitement of being the first people to see the original manuscript of Oscar's longest, best, and most important letter De Profundis, which had been given to the British Museum by Robbie Ross with a fifty-year ban on anyone's seeing it, so as to make sure Lord Alfred Douglas never saw it.

The fact that God loves man shows us that in the divine order of ideal things it is written that eternal love is to be given to what is eternally unworthy. It is the last thing left in me, and the best: the ultimate discovery at which I have arrived, the starting-point for a fresh development.

Sorrow is connected to love and with sorrow the soul of man reaches perfection. Where there is sorrow there is holy ground. After that, I hope to be able to recreate my creative faculty. Croslanda journalist and friend of Douglas after Wilde's death, negatively reviewed De Profundis in Yes, there and back again.

And agnosticism should have its ritual no less than faith. Reason was similarly lacking: Wilde felt that the law had convicted him unjustly.
