Winter’s Glory Captured by Wilde

Now Rupert Everett’s film about Oscar Wilde The Happy Prince is about to be released, now is surely the time to appreciate Wilde the poet.

Click the link to hear an excerpt of his poem Humanitad on video.  Wilde’s verse perfectly captures the haunting glory of the English winter, specifically in the north of England which is the haunt of the bittern.

The film is an excerpt of Lancaster Film Makers’ Co-op’s short The Genius and the Rebel about how Arthur Ransome came to accept a controversial commission for a book about Wilde proposed by his publisher Martin Secker.  Enjoy.
