    Wilde was honest with his feelings. He was perfect for his times, an avatar of progress.

    Poor Oscar, confused Anglo-Hibernian.

  • Joseph Poewhit (7/18/2010 3:22:00 PM)

    Words encompass a wide spectrum of feelings and life. Really beautiful piece of writing.

    So many things he says to write this poem! This clearly shows he was not in love at all in life!

  • Edwin Baldwin (7/22/2009 5:08:00 PM)

    Excellent foreplay on the heart strings....

  • Anthony Foster (7/18/2009 2:28:00 PM)

    Very guarded perhaps due to the morality of the time, despite which describes a passion and love which is person to person whatever the gender. A brilliant poet and playwrite.

    In the midst of the worldly
    beings,
    you are still able to
    see through
    what's the most valuable
    to you

  • Kevin Straw (7/18/2009 5:02:00 AM)

    Oscar probably felt passion but he could not write it. This poem is too full of be-jewelled lines, and tired sub-Shakespearean metaphors. Wilde's forte was in brilliant paradoxical wit. 'The Importance...' has everything that everything else of his lacks - the truth.

  • Susan Alldred-lugton (7/19/2005 3:26:00 AM)

    This poem demonstrates yet again Wilde's abilty to ponder over, understand, and put into words the complex nature of one human beings feeling toward another

    It is sad that he was unable to use his insights to have a happier life himself but, as we all know, brilliance does not sit comfortably alongside productive relationships
    A man born too soon There should be more like him

    Susan AlldredLugton
