Oscar Wilde's essay The Soul Of Man Under Socialism was published as a book in May 1895, only five days after Wilde had been sentenced to two years of hard labour for indecency when homosexuality was illegal. It is his only explicitly political essay with direct political appeal. In this text Wilde talks about the role of the individual and the artist, responds to the exploitation he witnessed in Britain and Ireland and France and calls for a socialist reconstruction of society to eradicate poverty, to search out the root cause of exploitation, cautioning that altruism and philanthropy can waylay the struggle and actually help to maintain poverty.
