The average work about socialism talks about such dry topics as economics and politics. This essay doesnt do any of that. It goes into art, and even pseudo-psychology (one could say). It covers a broad variety of topics in a short amount of pages. I agree with almost everything said in this book. Its definitely worth reading and will really make you think.

This is probably the best essay I have ever read. It has defined my political reviews still today. Its a work of true romanticism.

The Soul of Man under Socialism was a very interesting little book. Although, I dont believe Oscar Wildes interests included the common Socialist schools. Yet, socialism was the fad of the day. Many intellectuals were interested in the theories, but Oscar was in his eyes an artist and an Individualist. Capital I on individualist.

Oscar was hurt and he was attempting to argue that life style, and art, especially his, should be free from the common peoples rules. Poetry was not controlled because nobody read poetry.

I find Oscar Wild a very human elitist and although I thought it sad, I enjoyed his work immensely and this work was no different.
