Then happy I, that loved and am beloved

wilde
Oscar Wilde

`He began by pointing out that the young man to whom Shakespeare addressed these strangely passionate poems must have been somebody who was a really vital factor in the development of his dramatic art, and that this could not be said either of Lord Pembroke or Lord Southampton. Indeed, whoever he was, he could not have been anybody of high birth, as was shown very clearly by the 25th Sonnet, in which Shakespeare contrasts himself with those who are great princes’ favourites,”

says quite frankly—‘

1. Let those who are in favour with their stars
Of public honour and proud titles boast,
Whilst I, whom fortune of such triumph bars,
Unlook’d for Joy in that I honour most

Oscar Wilde, 1889. “The Portrait of Mr. W.H.”
