Written during his time in Reading jail, De Profundis is Oscar Wilde's moving letter to Lord Alfred Douglas, whose relationship with Wilde led to the poet's imprisonment. Here Wilde repudiates Lord Alfred and reflects on his ordeal, acknowledging how the depths of his sorrow have helped liberate him towards a fuller, freer wisdom.

Brimming with beautiful passages, De Profundis is a profound and inspiring treatise on the meaning of suffering, and is introduced by Wilde's only grandchild, Merlin Holland.
