Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

While jailed for homosexual offenses, Wilde wrote this long, bitter letter of recrimination to his lover, Lord Alfred Douglas. It offers fascinating insights into Wilde's life in prison and the background and psychology of a notorious affair, but its eloquence, passion and literary excellence make it a universal statement about love, injustice and suffering.

Couverture différente, donc un peu déçue, mais le texte rattrape tout. A lire absolument, la version originale beaucoup plus riche que le texte français.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best in the best 18 juillet 2015

Best in best. Fullest understanding of the truth of life made by the noblest man through listening to god artistically. He and Leo Tolstoy are my favorite writers. Everyone should read it, but only few can really understand.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is the Full Version 5 octobre 2015
Par Candace Williams - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Unlike other editions that purport to contain the full version, but do not, this one does! To be sure you're buying the complete version, check to see that it begins, "Dear Bosie." After all, De Profundis is a letter to Lord Alfred, a/k/a Bosie, written by Wilde from prison over a three-month period under abhorrent conditions. Other editions may be merely shortened versions which had been edited to excise references to Lord Alfred and his family.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An intricate novel in 90 pages. 16 janvier 2001
Par A. L. - Publié sur
Format: Poche
I usually avoid reading writers' biographies or letters to their loved ones, especially those published posthumously. I am sure some people dream of the time when their lives are open to scrutiny by legions of readers, when their private confessions are published in neat volumes, and their witty letters to friends have little footnotes explaining the inside-jokes to the uninitiated. But the thought makes me cringe, and in the spirit of the old saying "do onto others", I have never before ventured into someone's exposed private life.
Last summer though, I came across this letter by accident and found myself unable to stop reading it until I was done. The glimpse into someone's vulnerable privacy was intoxicating. Having read (and loved) "The Importance of Being Earnest", "The Ideal Husband", and other light pieces, or even "The Portrait of Dorian Gray"--a more somber but still very controlled story, I was shocked by this letter--tortured by emotion and so uneven--by the same author.
The previous reviewer mentioned that he found the letter somewhat contrived. But the insincerity makes it all the more fascinating ! Not even the insincerity in itself, but the bits where the true emotion bursts through. I could imagine so vividly the great author, the person of wit and fashion, stripped of the glamor, in jail, trying to clear up his name in the public letter to his lover. He starts out with calm and controlled prose, trying to put his Christian-repentance-and-forgiveness scheme on paper... And, I am sure, he believes the things he plans to write. However, as he gets deeper into the narrative, as his pen takes a hold of him, he starts writing what he did not mean--the truth, full of bile and unrequited passion. In a while he notices it and collects himself, and the prose becomes controlled and witty and intellectual. But he is in jail, the time for writing is precious and does not permit the luxury of extensive editing. It lets soul nudity that would normally be edited out remain to seduce shamless readers like me.
It is not only the breakaway emotion that I found so compelling in the letter. It is also the very alternating nature of the narrative--from the polished and righteous to the true and base, and back. Is it not how our mind always works: how it thinks what we wish it to think and then breaks away to find something deeper in us, until we catch it and put it back to its proper controlled place...
There is a long and intricate novel hidden in this letter. It is a story of the rise and fall of a great man, of the universally human desire and its treacherous waters, of stoicism and weakness, of the fine society and jailed outcasts, and we see it through the eyes of the main hero who actually lived. It is presented fully on meager ninety pages. Wilde was a genius indeed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wilde's Masterpiece, By FAR 30 mai 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Poche
Not actually a "letter," though it had to be originally presented as such for him to be allowed to write it while in prison, *De Profundis* is Wilde's masterpiece--one has to have really lived and really, really suffered to have written it and it's amazing that he achieved it.
I only very recently read it--and "got" it. It rings true to me, and is very, very moving and "profound." It ain't summer beach reading.
Wilde is still and will probably always be best known as a "Personality"--that and the author of a couple of decent period plays, a short novel, a few stories, and lots of forgettable poems and such. But THIS--THIS is IT.
He really WAS a great writer, it turns out, after all.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Review of Dover's 'De Profundis' 26 mai 2011
Par Ryan Mease - Publié sur
Format: Poche
This is a rather basic presentation of the English text, with a small introduction and a few minimal notes, mostly to translate non-English text within the letter. I've got not complaints, but nor do I have anything glowing to say about this edition of 'De Profundis.'
