    Wilde was honest with his feelings. He was perfect for his times, an avatar of progress. (Report) Reply

    Poor Oscar, confused Anglo-Hibernian. (Report) Reply

    So many things he says to write this poem! This clearly shows he was not in love at all in life! (Report) Reply

    Excellent foreplay on the heart strings.... (Report) Reply

    Very guarded perhaps due to the morality of the time, despite which describes a passion and love which is person to person whatever the gender. A brilliant poet and playwrite. (Report) Reply

    Oscar probably felt passion but he could not write it. This poem is too full of be-jewelled lines, and tired sub-Shakespearean metaphors. Wilde's forte was in brilliant paradoxical wit. 'The Importance...' has everything that everything else of his lacks - the truth. (Report) Reply

    This poem demonstrates yet again Wilde's abilty to ponder over, understand, and put into words the complex nature of one human beings feeling toward another

    It is sad that he was unable to use his insights to have a happier life himself but, as we all know, brilliance does not sit comfortably alongside productive relationships
    A man born too soon There should be more like him
