Clearly, prison time was wasted on the author, sorry, Author. Pages upon pages of resentment, spite, anger and bitterness, especially bitterness. I read the history behind it after reading the book and it makes Wilde look rather bad and the claimed humility looks even more fake in its light. ( )

Pitched somewhere between a personal essay and a prose poem, this book, or at least this edition of this book, is one of limited virtue, e.g., the occasional deployment of Wilde's masterful prose, mostly at the book's beginning and at its end, when he narrates his public humiliation and imprisonment near the end of his life. The middle portion of the book is taken up almost entirely by his paean to the Christ; his reflections thereon are somewhere between fanciful and ridiculous. Since the topic which was the reason that two people recommended this book to me is nowhere addressed, I have to assume that this is an abridgement, perhaps issued for purposes of Christian proselytizing, as the book's content here is almost entirely taken up with flimsy apologetics. This homebrew Makerspace edition is replete with typos, capitalization where italics are called for, and omission of the several passages from non-Roman alphabets. ( )

Una carta de doscientas páginas. Parece imposible tener tanta paciencia como tiene Wilde al escribir esto. La carta va dirigida a su amante, llamado Bosie, al que recrimina sus malas acciones durante el tiempo que pasaron juntos. La carta está escrita desde la cárcel, donde el pobre Wilde dio con sus huesos por su condición de homosexual. El tal Bosie era un mal bicho, por cierto. Malo, malo, malo. Un cabrón, un enfant terrible, un mimado y un gilipollas. Wilde, que era la estrella del ingenio y el brillo social, tuvo que aguantar y pasar por miserias y penurias, tanto económicas como psicológicas, por culpa de su amante. La carta en sí es bellísima; el estilo de Wilde en prosa es maravilloso. Gran libro. ( )

Wilde wrote this book-length letter while he was imprisoned at Reading Gaol for sodomy and gross indecency, in short for homosexual behavior. The letter, whose title means “from the depths,” is addressed to Lord Alfred Douglas. Under advisement from Lord Alfred, Wilde brought libel charges against Lord Alfred’s father, the Marquess of Queensberry, who had called Wilde a Sodomite. The whole situation got turned on its head when Queensberry provided proof that his allegations were true, and Wilde ended up in prison. This is a bit of an oversimplification, but Wilde himself discloses the whole history in the letter.
Wilde recounts his whole relationship and history with Lord Alfred in the first half of the letter. It’s gut-wrenching to read, honestly. The relationship is so toxic from the very start, that it’s not so much full of red flags as full of giant red banners pulled by airplanes. Lord Alfred used Wilde for money and fame, and clearly didn’t care about Wilde at all. The best example of this is during a vacation abroad when Lord Alfred came down with the flu and Wilde nursed him back to health: when Wilde himself caught the flu, Alfred straight up left, saying that Wilde was boring when he was sick. Lord Alfred seems a textbook case of narcissist behavior. It broke my heart reading this book and knowing that Wilde was stuck in such an unhealthy relationship.
The latter part of the letter is more uplifting. Here, Wilde discusses his own spiritual growth while in prison. He talks about his suicidal period, yes, but also how he has moved beyond that. He also likens Christ to a poet, perhaps the greatest poet who ever lived. This is the part where Wilde really hits is stride and the beauty of his writing truly shines. Oscar Wilde was posthumously pardoned in 2017.

Dear Bosie, After long and fruitless waiting I have determined to write to you myself, as much for your sake as for mine, as I would not like to think that I had passed through two long years of imprisonment without ever having received a single line from you, or any news or message even, except such as gave me pain.

Suffering is one very long moment. We cannot divide it by seasons.
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
It is always twilight in one's cell, as it is always midnight in one's heart.
I was a man who stood in symbolic relations to the art and culture of my age. I had realised this for myself at the very dawn of my manhood, and had forced my age to realise it afterwards. Few men hold such a position in their own lifetime and have it so acknowledged. It is usually discerned, if discerned at all, by the historian, or the critic, long after both the man and his age have passed away.
I amused myself with being a flaneur, a dandy, a man of fashion. I surrounded myself with the smaller natures and the meaner minds. I became the spendthrift of my own genius, and to waste an eternal youth gave me a curious joy. Tired of being on the heights I deliberately went to the depths in the search for new sensations.
