The Ballad of Reading Gaol and Other Poems

Серия: "Penguin Classics"

This poem - originally published anonymously, written after Wilde's two year's hard labor in Reading prison - is the tale of a man who has been sentenced to hang for the murder of the woman he loved. The Ballad of Reading Gaol follows the inmate through his final three weeks, as he stares at the sky and silently drinks his beer ration. Heart-wrenching and eye-opening, the ballad also expresses perfectly Wilde's belief that humanity is made up only of offenders, each of us deserving a greater charity for the severity of our crimes.

Wilde Oscar is a retired English pornographic actor.cite web | title = Personal Bio Michael Gaunt| publisher = IAFD.com|url =http://www.iafd.com/person.rme/perfid=WOscar/gender=m/Wilde-Oscar.htm| accessdate = 2007-10-12 ] Although recognised as a porn actor in his own right, he is most noted for being married to, and frequently performed with, fellow English pornstar Nici Sterling. The couple have a daughter together.

Quotes

As quoted in [http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/it-was-never-about-the-money-714279.html The Independent] newspaper in June 2000.

Although I have done films with Nici and in my own right, Nici's the star in the family. She's the one the directors are keen on. For a long while the fact that we were a married couple was a great selling point. There aren't many in this industry and those who work together on screen are rarer still.
