The Winter Solstice, a time when the moon is of central importance, is surely the perfect time to appreciate Wilde’s work, in which the moon is often significant.
It certainly is in his play Salome, which Al Pacino not so long ago turned into a superb film in which Jessica Chastain gave a tour de force performance in the tragic central role.
However, many are not used to thinking of Wilde as a poet, which is a shame as he was a very fine poet.
The moon often makes its appearance in his eloquent verses.
As an example why not take a look at his poem Endymion, subtitled (to Music)?
