    1. Actually, I read this edition of Wilde s letters when it was reissued a couple of years back Whenever I m going through my Wilde phase about once a month I flip through this tome for comfort and laughs Who knew that the art of letter writing could be so entertaining Oscar did

    2. Son las cartas m s bonitas que he le do Lo nico que vi mal en el libro es que se muestran las cartas ya traducidas y en muchas partes se nota c mo se pierde un poco el sentido por culpa de la traducci n Habr a estado bien que hubieran puesto las cartas originales y luego, si quer an, la traducci n Por lo dem s, estuvo genial Creo que es un buen complemento para De Profundis , porque muestra el lado bueno que Oscar Wilde no mencion ah y con ello hace que veas esa relaci n de un modo diferente.

    3. What a character, Oscar Wilde 1888 1895 I would describe him as a social butterfly He knew everyone and would attend parties dinners theater productions and , every night day of the week He hated Sundays because there was nothing to do but go to church, everything was closed They say he was the life of any party, captivating his audience with wit and interesting stories He was a writer, wit, and raconteur, as the pre eminent personality of his day 1888 to 1895 he completed Salome the novel, as w [...]

    4. It s a big fat volume, but worth its weight in gold as offering the most complete self portrait of Oscar Wilde in all his moods, from amusing to despairing, commenting on life and the Arts in the late Victorian world and joshing with his closest friends Expertly edited updated edition by his grandson, Merlin Holland.

    5. Estas cartas para Lord Alfred Douglas entre 1892 al 1897, demuestran el amor que ten a Wilde por el jovencito de ojos y cabellos claros Pero tambi n como los amigos de Oscar hicieron lo posible para separarlo del que amaba, debido que lo estaba arruinando como vemos en De Profundis, que mediante una carta larga que escribe Oscar conocemos la realidad de persona que era Douglas.A su vez este ejemplar nos cuenta que se conservaron casi todas las cartas de Oscar mientras que las de Bosie Douglas so [...]

    6. Been interested in writers thoughts on the process of writing and the writing life lately I also saw the film biography of Wilde with Stephen Fry not long ago and thought it was great, which put Wilde back in the front of my mind This is a doorstop of a book, the kind of thing Wilde philes should have on their shelves for reference a little harder to relax with in a bubble bath Started reading front to back, but I think I will have to skip around It is far too well researched and complete for pl [...]

    7. This is truly a magnificent collection of letters It is wonderful how writers such as Wilde and H P Lovecraft reveal themselves in their epistles, and how these letters so add to our biographical information concerning these writers With Wilde, the story of his life seems to captivate people than his actual fiction, poetry, and essays There are now so many studies of his life, his tragedy I think Wilde is probably most famous today for his plays, in particular THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, w [...]

    8. Refaz a Minha Vida ArruinadaMeu querido rapaz, Recebi o teu telegrama h meia hora, e quero apenas enviar te uma linha para dizer que sinto que a minha nica esperan a de novamente fazer arte maravilhosa est em encontrar te e permanecer contigo Antes n o era assim, mas agora diferente, e tu consegues verdadeiramente recriar em mim a energia e a sensa o alegre de poder, das quais a arte depende Todos est o furiosos comigo por regressar a ti, mas eles n o nos compreendem Sinto que apenas contigo sou [...]

    9. This honestly is a 1400 paged beast but fortunately it was a beautiful beast to read.You see Wilde in his finest years and in his worst.Truly a magnificent person and writer specifically.I am so grateful to his grandson for editing this whole collection of letters

    10. Un libro curioso y sobre todo muy hermoso, con las cartas que Wilde escribi a su gran amor, Bosie Las traducciones de Luis Antonio de Villena no me acaban de convencer pero aun as , es un apasionante viaje por un romance tr gico y maldito Es una l stima que no existan m s cartas.

    11. The best collection I ve seen of Oscar Wilde letters Perhaps some in depth biographical grounding regarding the recipients writers of some of the letters might have been nice, but then again, since the book already runs 950 pages, space was at a premium.

    12. i HIGHLY recommend using this in conjunction with the biography very nice to see the actual communications as i m reading another person s interpretation of his life.

    13. it might take a year to read but worth it the scope of this book is beyond any novel i can think of, except the bible, which lacks depth
