Wilde's works are suffused with his aestheticism, brilliant craftsmanship, legendary wit and, ultimately, his tragic muse. He wrote tender fairy stories for children employing all his grace, artistry and wit, of which the best-known is The Happy Prince. Counterpoints to this were his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, which shocked and outraged many readers of his day, and his stories for adults which exhibited his fascination with the relations between serene art and decadent life. Wilde took London by storm with his plays, particularly his masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest. His essays - in particular De Profundis- and his Ballad of Reading Gaol, both written after his release from prison, strikingly break the bounds of his usual expressive range. His other essays and poems are all included in this comprehensive collection of the works of one of the most exciting writers of the late nineteenth century.

"Epistola: In Carcere et Vinculis" ist das Manuskript des offenen Briefes "De Profundis", den der irische Schriftsteller Oscar Wilde zwischen 1895 und 1897, während seiner Inhaftierung in verschiedenen englischen Zuchthäusern an seinen früheren Freund und Liebhaber Lord Alfred Bruce Douglas schrieb. Der Name der Schrift, die etwa 50.000 Wörter umfasst, ist dem Psalm 130 entnommen: "'De profundis' clamavi ad te Domine." - "Aus der Tiefe rief ich, Herr, zu Dir".

Patrick M. Horan presents his own biography of Speranza and Wilde to illustrate that they were, paradoxically, both rebellious and conventional. He terms this contradictory impulse to upset and maintain the status quo "conventional Bohemianism." Horan then explores Speranza's presence in Wilde's literature and stresses that he shared her love of paradox, which he used to explain his contradictory views about nationalism, feminism, love, motherhood, and imprisonment. Horan argues that, even though Wilde longed to be recognized by fashionable London society, he was "self-alienated" because he was hailed as the son of an Irish nationalist poet. He illustrates that feminism was problematic for both mother and son - they were both trailblazing feminists. Nevertheless, Speranza idealized wives as self-sacrificing and submissive, and Wilde idealized female lovers as objects of beauty. Horan asserts that Speranza's love of Irish myth fostered young Wilde's love of fantasy, which is evidenced in his fairy tales and The Picture of Dorian Gray. He concludes that Wilde wrote fantasy, in part, to identify humanity's inhumanity, to acknowledge that love is often unreciprocated, and to affirm the naturalness of homosexuality. He also proposes that Wilde wrote fiction and drama, to present the self-sacrificing nature of motherhood; his mother's characters clearly exhibit Speranza's at once conventional and Bohemian personality. Finally, the author demonstrates that in "De Profundis," Wilde acknowledged Speranza's wise and paradoxical credo that sorrow brings joy.

Volume IV of the Oxford English Texts Complete Works of Oscar Wilde is the first variorum edition of Wilde's major critical writing; it includes the critical essays which were re-published in book-form in his life-time - that is, those anthologised in Intentions and The Soul of Man - as well as his graduate essay usually known by the title The Rise of Historical Criticism, but which this volume titles Historical Criticism. The Introduction gives a detailed account of the composition of each of the essays: it gives a new explanation for the relationship between the 'The Decay of Lying' and 'Pen, Pencil, and Poison' (arguing that they are best understood as companion pieces); it provides the first concrete demonstration that Wilde did, on occasions, knowingly 'copy' his own work; and it reveals that substantial cuts were made to some of Wilde's essays (without his full consent) by the periodical editors with whom he worked. The edition also provides, for the first time, a full collation of the textual variants between the published versions of Wilde's essays (that is, both book and periodical), and all extant manuscripts; in addition it establishes a new, authoritative text for Historical Criticism, based on an examination of the original manuscript, which differs significantly from that printed by Robert Ross in his 1908 Collected Edition (and subsequently reprinted in the Collins Complete Works). The annotation to the edition reveals the full extent of Wilde's 'borrowings' both from his own work, and from other writers; it also reveals that much of Historical Criticism is in fact paraphrasing or translating well-known classical texts, and that the some of denseness of the argument is due to ellipses in Wilde's text that were disguised by earlier editors.
