to quote the blurb that came with the text "Transcribed from the 1913 Methuen & Co. edition Note that later editions of De Profundis contained more material. The most complete editions are still in copyright in the U.S.A." So that's all we can legally do. Anne

This is a deep look at suffering. I loved the third chapter. Really good stuff. I'll probably listen again or read it at some point. It's one to think on.

A beautiful, soulful text, beautifully read. Thank you to both Oscar and Adam, from a lonely student in Paris.
