Have you ever wondered what it was like in times gone by? Have you ever wondered what it was like to be in jail, back then?  The Ballad Of Reading gaol, Is a valuable insight into what it was like in jail in the 19th century in the UK. 

Oscar Wilde was the most famous playwright of the 1890’s. This is his final work published during his lifetime.(De Profundis published 1905 after his passing in 1900) His works included “The Importance Of Being Earnest” and “The Picture of Dorian Gray” Oscar was jailed for 2 years from 1895 to 1897 for “gross indecency” towards other men. Even so, He was famous for his wit, flamboyant dress style and conversational skill. 


During his imprisonment a man was hanged for cutting the throat of his wife. Rather than attempt to assess the laws that convicted him, Oscar chooses to highlight the brutalisation of punishment that all convicts share. It also highlights Oscar's belief that everyone is deserving of more compassion, more charity because after all we are all offenders to some degree. 


This heart wrenching and eye opening account is a must read for anyone interested in history, literature or LGBT rights.

Об авторе

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet. Celebrated on both sides of the Atlantic for his wit, he is rumored to have informed a customs agent upon his arrival in America, “I have nothing to declare but my genius.” Wilde’s health and reputation were destroyed by his imprisonment for “gross indecency” in 1895, and he died in poverty a few years after his release. Today, his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and his play, The Importance of Being Earnest, are recognized as masterpieces of English literature.
