De Profundis Download Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook De Profundis Latin from the depths is a 50000 word letter written by Oscar Wilde during his imprisonment in Reading Gaol to Lord Alfred Douglas his loverWilde wrote the letter between January and March 1897; he wa. It is funny how sometimes books come at you and when I say you I mean me sometimes almost in clusters It is almost like there really is a God and He has infinite knowledge of the universe and knows just what it is that you need to be thinking about right about now except He is curiously shy and so He doesn t like to come right out with it and tell you directly what s on His mind So instead He leaves books lying around in places where you are fairly likely to trip over them and then pick them up and think about them you know it s been a while since I read a book about someone rotting away in prison I ought to read thisExcept it hasn t been a while since I did anything of the sort Only the other week I was reading another perfectly good book written by a man who was rotting away in a perfectly good prison and that book also had him thinking about the consolation given to him by philosophy This book isn t too different from that one The Consolation of Philosophy Revised Edition The big difference is that this should probably be called the consolation of art but other than that I guess the message of both is much the sameThe Message is pretty much that we are alone in the world If you are to live a life that isn t a clich you have to learn that most people don t live their own lives they live lives that should be bound by uotation marks Most people are other people Wilde says himself They think other people s thoughts they mouth whatever are the most popular opinions of the day they watch the same stuff on television that everyone else does and they can even put together sentences grouped into endless paragraphs on subjects of infinite fascination as the merits of the computer generated graphics they saw in Avatar If you are going to live a worthwhile life and isn t that the only uestion of any interest in the whole of philosophy which is probably why it is the one uestion modern philosophy seems to avoid then Wilde s advice is to at least try to be yourself He acknowledges that doing that is a hard thing Christ they might even put you in gaol if you try that sort of thing but the alternative is a much worse prison cell and one where you are both prisoner and warder where you turn the key that locks you in yourself Eliot of course was wrong but being a poet he gets to be wrong as long as he is beautifully wrong We don t think of the key each sitting in our prison thinking of the key as if that confirmed the prison the most frightening thing is that we don t think of the key at all we don t think of the key because to think of the key is to acknowledge the prison And for most of us that is too much to acknowledge Prison What prisonBut there is an escape plan We are individuals and life is not the ordered rational scientifically verifiable and graphed out hypothesis in fifteen variables that someone of the Enlightenment might have decided you ought to think it is Wilde sees the great conflict of the human soul as being that between Classicism and Romanticism and in that conflict we need to take sides and the side Wilde takes is Romanticism As he says I am one of those who is made for exceptions not for laws And let s face it we do like our victims to find forgiveness for us after we have meted out our punishments of them Wilde even discovers Christ in a sense though I think the Christ Wilde discovers isn t uite the same Christ that many Christians would be familiar with This is not Christ the punisher Christ the faith healer or Christ the disappointed friend but rather a Christ who is wise enough to use children as his example to us of who we should strive to be like Such a Christ is someone worthy of being followedHis was a Christ who was the lover of ignorant people the protector of the exceptions the defender of those who might just prove to have a great ideaI thought this was a remarkable book and a terribly sad book too Although in the end of this Wilde like Boethius is not as bitter with his fate as he could so easily be although he envisions a future life that is not dedicated to the pursuit solely of pleasure but rather to a life that also acknowledges darker shades and minor keys art is seen as the means to free ourselves from the horrors this world presents us with dreadful if not predictable regularityThis was a remarkable book I found it incredibly moving and often painfully sad I think though that it is often good to be reminded of both the infinite harm we can cause to other people and also the near perfect gift we give that is contained in our simplest act of kindness This really is a lovely piece of writingThe stuff on Hamlet is worth reading on its own nothing is invariably good and art must also be included in that Hamlet creating the play within the play in which to watch the effect this causes is Hamlet the artist Hamlet s madness is Hamlet the actor And this plays a great part in what is the tragedy of HamletThis is like so many of Wilde s works full of uotable uotes and so here are a uick selection of some of my favourites There were Christians before Christ For that we should be grateful The unfortunate thing is that there have been none since A man whose desire is to be something separate from himself to be a member of parliament or a successful grocer or a prominent solicitor or a judge or something eually tedious invariably succeeds in being what he want to be That is his punishment I must accept the fact that one is punished for the good as well as the evil that one does

De Profundis or from the depths is a long letter written by Oscar Wild to Lord Alfred Douglas while he was imprisoned in Reading Goal The letter is Wild s attempt to come to terms with his past present dire circumstances and the future that he will have to face once released As the name states the letter is an account from the depth from his soul with all honesty Although he holds that he is unjustly convicted he nevertheless admits that he has committed grave errors in the past He is repentant on the superficial life he has had led And he seeks forgiveness and bestows forgiveness of those who he believed wronged him The letter is also a way of releasing his anger bitterness and despair while he struggled to find meaning and purpose for the continuation of his life He admits that he wanted to end it in utter despair But yet he struggles despite his losses he was made bankrupt and he was barred from any contacts with his sons to come to terms with the nature of life which he says is full of sorrow which can be endured only though loveIt was truly sad to read the emotional and mental agonies that such a fine artist had to go through And when he said that he had brought disgrace to the name that his loving parents had bestowed on him my heart broke It is a huge burden one carries with oneself This second time I managed to get hold of the complete letter that was written to Lord Alfred Douglas It gives a better picture of their relationship and how it led to Wilde s ultimate downfall The account was heartbreaking I felt his pain and despair and couldn t help but feel that if only the society and institutions of justice were merciful They didn t punish a man They punished art
