Publisher's Summary

When we think of Oscar Wilde, we think of his wonderful wit and, of course, his plays and short stories. We rarely think of his poetry. We should. His work brings new insights into both his view of the world and how we can view him.
Of course many know 'The Ballad of Reading Gaol'; now we bring you that poem and many others: 'Endymon'; 'Serenade'; 'Helas!'; 'Requescat'; 'Italia'; 'Athanasia'; 'Chanson'; 'To Milton'; 'A Vision'; 'Sonnet to Liberty'; 'Easter Day'; 'Vita Nuova'; 'Her Voice'; 'Impression Du Matin'; 'Sonnet on Approaching Italy'; 'The Grave of Shelley'; 'In the Gold Room - a Harmony'; 'Santa Decca'; 'Madonna Mia'; and 'The Garden of Eros'.

Great actor, but not for this. If we were doing Tennyson or Sir Walter Scott, I could hear his voice, but for this he's a bad choice. It requires, well, a gayer voice (I'm gay, lighten up).

I can't imagine Barrett doing The Importance of Being Earnest, except, perhaps, as Aunt Augusta ("To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.")

The character of Algernon Moncrieff *is* Wilde, and that's the actor you want.
