    This is my 4th time to read Oscar Wilde and the I read his works, the he becomes one of my favorite writers.Oscar Wilde 1854 1900 was a married man and he had two children Yet, he had homosexual affairs His sexual preference, considered lewd and taboo during the Victorian era, led him to his incarceration in a town prison or gaol in Reading, England That explains the title In the prison, he witnessed the execution of a man who killed his wife while drunk A year later, when he was out of his cell, he wrote this sad and haunting poem, The Ballad of Reading Gaol and it was so famous, his friends put some passages from it on his epitaph tombstone The effect of this poem to me was that for almost a week, I stopped reading I could not stop the scenes in the poem that kept playing in my head a dead wife whose throat is slit by a knife The drunk husband standing in the corner of the room shocked amidst the eerie silence regretting what he did The same man being led to his execution while Wilde looking at murderer s bitter eyes That adjective in quotation comes from the famous passage from the poem Yet each man kills the thing he loves By each let this be heard Some do it with a bitter look, Some with a flattering word The coward does it with a kiss, The brave man with a sword We all do this right Not killing our love ones with a sword of course but hurting the people we love Sometimes we want to test how they would react because we know they will not stop loving us Sometimes, it is our sheer foolishness Or maybe, just like the man who actually killed his wife, he was just drunk.Prior to joining Goodreads in 2009, I did not know anything about Oscar Wilde but when I read his heartbreaking memoir De Profundis 4 stars , I immediately read The Happy Prince and Other Tales 3 stars followed right away by his most famous work, The Picture of Dorian Gray 3 stars I liked them all but I am always curious about the dark side not that homosexuality is dark but it is normally not put in the open so there goes my interest of an author s mind So with the previous knowledge of Oscar Wilde s life story his downfall because of his incarceration I read this poem slowly and so those scenes got imprinted in my mind and stayed there for almost a week that I could not understand what was going on while trying to read the other books in my currently reading shelf.That s how powerful this poem is It is haunting The vivid description of the gaol The cries of a man thrown into the jail waiting for his death The pleas of Wilde and his surrender to God Wilde used to be flamboyant, happy, famous and rich suffering from hunger and spite of the town s people The brilliant author not being allowed even a pen and paper to write his thoughts Only because he committed homosexual affairs.Oscar Wilde, your fault was this you were born at the wrong time.

    Oscar Wilde escribi La Balada de la c rcel de Reading precisamente cuando todav a estaba en prisi n, luego de ser sentenciado a dos a os de trabajos forzados por sodom a en 1895 y otros cargos que asumi a partir de hacer p blica su condici n de homosexual, perdiendo un juicio contra el padre de Alfred Bosie Douglas, su propio amante.Tuvo que sufrir el oprobio, la injusticia y crueles ataques de parte de una pacata sociedad victoriana ya agonizante Soport estoicamente y con valor esos a os de hondo sufrimiento de la misma manera que hace casi cincuenta a os atr s hab a tenido que soportar tambi n otro gran escritor, Fi dor Dostoievski, condenado a cuatro a os de trabajos forzados en Siberia.Reponiendo parcialmente su relaci n con Douglas, termin escribiendo esta balada en la casa de ste, incluso luego de esa famosa carta que le enviara un a o atr s y que todos conocemos como De Profundis , que es un texto epistolar dur simo y desgarrador en donde realiza su catarsis y su mea culpa intentando reponer su orgullo de artista.Escribi esta balada bajo el seud nimo de Sebastian Melmoth, durante su estancia en Bernebal, cuando ya la enfermedad y la muerte le acechaban y luego de la muerte de su ex esposa en 1898 Dos a os m s tarde, le tocar a a l morir s lo y abandonado en la habitaci n de un modesto hotel de Par s.Esta balada es un homenaje a otro preso que l conoci , que se llamaba Charles T Woolridge y que fue ejecutado en esa misma c rcel de Reading en 1896.La balada es un largo y desolador poema del cual extraigo algunas l neas Ah, Cristo Los mismos muros de la c rcel parecieron temblar de repente y el ciclo sobre mi cabeza se convirti en un casco de acero enrojecido y aunque yo tambi n era un alma en pena, mi pena casi no pod a sentirla.Supe entonces qu pensamiento opresor apresuraba su paso y por qu miraba la cegadora claridad del d a con aquella mirada tan intensa aquel hombre hab a matado lo que amaba, y por eso deb a morir.Y, sin embargo, cada hombre mata lo que ama, s panlo todos unos lo hacen con una mirada de odio otros, con palabras acariciadoras el cobarde, con un beso el valiente, con una espada Ante tanta hermosura po tica, sobran ya mis palabras.

    This is a beautiful and moving poem by Oscar Wild Based on personal observation and experience of his time in Reading jail, Wild wrote this sad and haunting poem while living in exile I have not read any poems by Wild, so this is my first experience I have known him for an excellent playwright and recently discovered him as a great essayist Now I m discovering a great poet in him too This poem is mainly based on an execution that took place while he was in the prison Making it the center of theme, Wild goes on to expose the dire conditions of prison life, the despair of its inmates, the degradation and the shame that he personally felt at being imprisoned The sincere and passionate expression with which he says it all is heartbreaking I read the whole poem with blurry eyes and a quivering voice I do recite them when I read poems.This work showed me an entire different literary side of Oscar Wild I have for the most part associated him with wit, sarcasm and his thoughtful and philosophical insights But what I saw in this work is the raw display of emotion and absolute sincerity His personal experience has poured so much of feeling in to this poem and it is no exaggeration when I say it is one of the most emotional poems that I have read Ballad of Reading Gaol was his last work and there were no writing before his death Being impoverished, degraded and utterly shamed, it is said that Wild had stated that something killed in me as the reason for not producing any work after this poem It is really a pity, for Wild is one of the best literary products of 19th century And it is very sad to think that a brilliant mind and a wonderfully gifted artist came to such a pathetic end.

    I never saw a man who looked With such a wistful eye Upon that little tent of blue Which prisoners call the sky The man had killed the thing he loved And so he had to die.Yet each man kills the thing he loves What word of grace in such a place Could help a brother s soul And wondered why men knelt to pray Who never prayed before For he who live lives than one More deaths than one must die.To suffer while witnessing the prisoner s hell or the one who mourns the life the first one took away.This must be one of the most haunting poems I ve read this year Deeply memorable lines, delicious musicality highly charged, evocative images that repeat themselves in the land where each day is like a year a gem born amidst tragedy.Aug 7, 18 Later on my blog.

    This is definitely not the Wilde many people are familiar with here he eschews the characteristic wit in favour of a sorrowful, dark lament about prison life and the concept of prison in general This poem isn t in the vein of some of Wilde s well known works and honestly, it s all the better for it.Read the poem here and read about Wilde s time in prison here.

    I never would have thought that I d love macabre poetry but I guess between this and Edgar Allen Poe, I most certainly do I absolutely loved this dark poem Wilde is reflecting on his time in prison as he and other prisoners watch the final process of another prisoner s hanging sentence for killing his wife He describes his first thoughts of watching the prisoner walk towards his death, not yet knowing what the prisoner s crime was I never saw a man who looked With such a wistful eye Upon that little tent of blue Which prisoners call the sky, And at every drifting cloud that went With sails of silver by I walked, with other souls in pain, Within another ring, And was wondering if the man had done A great or little thing, When a voice behind me whispered low, That fellow s got to swing As the poem goes on, it s clear that in addition to being about prisoners, crime and societies treatment of criminals, it s also a powerful allegorical exploration of sin and forgiveness Yet each man kills the thing he loves, By each let this be heard, Some do it with a bitter look, Some with a flattering word, The coward does it with a kiss, The brave man with a sword He doesn t mean this literally of course, but that we all disappoint the ones we love including God in some way or another, and in so doing kill bits of that love At least that s my interpretation anyway The poem is ultimately hopeful, but I won t share all the good parts That would be impossible because I loved every bit of this poem I ll be reading of Wilde s poetry.

    The very name Oscar Wilde is synonymous with wit and intelligence, and of course the best that the Victorian literature has to offer But this is not the whole story, as most of us know, Wilde was convicted of homosexual offences in 1895 and sentenced to two years hard labour in prison For a man of his fame, intelligence and standing, this was a death sentence After his release, Wilde spent most of his life in France and it is there that he wrote this poem He suggested that it be published in Reynold s Magazine, because it circulates widely among the criminal classes to which I now belong for once I will be read by my peers a new experience for me In this 109 stanza long poem, He decries the modern prison system and the dehumanizing effect it has on the inmates He saw the devastating psychological effect it has not only on the condemned, but also on those who condemn them in the name of justice Eventually, it was the hanging of an inmate accused of killing his wife that affected him the most and lead to the creation of this masterpiece Wilde identified with him, and in him he saw his own fate, gloomy and irredeemable But what surprised me the most were the religious connotations that kept on appearing within the stanzas that were most unlike his usual style The futility of life and love that dawned on him during his prison years are clearly reflected in the ballad, he repeatedly pictures himself and the inmates as the cast outs who are thrown out by the society, condemned and damned It is heartbreaking to see a man as lively and intelligent as Wilde ending up the way he did There is so much pain in these lines, that to feel indifferent to his suffering is beyond ones control Yet each man kills the thing he lovesBy each let this be heard.Some do it with a bitter look,Some with a flattering word.The coward does it with a kiss,The brave man with a sword Wilde lived only 2 years after his release and that too, in exile as an unknown no body.A passage from the poem was chosen as the epitaph on Wilde s tomb And alien tears will fill for him,Pity s long broken urn,For his mourners will be outcast men,And outcasts always mourn.
