    'For thou wert weary of the sunless day, The heavy fields of scentless asphodel, The loveless lips with which men kiss in Hell.'

    I’ve always struggled with reading poetry but Oscar Wilde writes like the everyman and so it’s much easier to understand. I still had to reread many poems to catch the meaning, or move to a quieter room, but overall I enjoyed the book of poems. Requiescat was my favorite, likely because I recently lost a family member and this sounded like a nice tribute to her.

    The Poetry of Oscar Wilde collects the greatest and most well-known poems of acclaimed novelist and playwright, Oscar Wilde. It was an interesting change of pace for me to read this poetry book. I enjoyed Wilde's interpretations of myths and legends, and a lot of lines were really impactful.

    Of all the poetry books I’ve read this year, this was the best one in my opinion. I got through it in a week and could understand a decent number of the poems. I don’t really know what else to say about this. It was a little boring, but I just don’t like poetry collections as much as other books.

    3.5 Yeah, I'm not smart enough for this lol. After reading Dorian Gray, I was a little surprised by the repeated allusions to mythology, God, and Cromwell in place of more modern commentary. But Wilde clearly had gift for language, so I liked it.
