Este volumen reúne dos de los escritos más famosos de Oscar Wilde de sus últimos años: 'De Profundis' y 'La balada de la cárcel de Reading'.'De Profundis' es una emotiva carta que Wilde escribió a su antiguo amante Lord Alfred Douglas mientras estaba encarcelado en la prisión en Reading acusado de grave indecencia. Es una profunda meditación sobre el significado del amor, la traición, el sufrimiento, la redención y el perdón. La cruda honestidad y la profundidad de sentimientos que muestra la carta proporcionan una visión única del alma y la mentalidad de Wilde durante sus horas más oscuras.'La balada de la cárcel de Reading' es un poema conmovedor basado en las experiencias de Wilde como presidiario. Lleno de imágenes vívidas y un ritmo poderoso, describe la crueldad y la inhumanidad del sistema penitenciario victoriano. La balada se centra en la ejecución de un compañero de prisión, Charles Thomas Wooldridge, y transmite la desesperación absoluta y la sensación de inutilidad que Wilde sintió durante su propio encarcelamiento.Ambas obras siguen siendo profundamente relevantes como testamentos de la humanidad esencial y la dignidad de todas las personas, incluidos los perseguidos y condenados de la sociedad. 10
