The Ballad Of Peter Blackfrog - Longshot (3) - Asylum (CD)

Sometimes the music is reminding me of YES. Some of the songs contain vocals but unfortunately the vocals are not able to add more atmosphere to the song The compositions show some very good themes and ideas There are not many parts on this album where all instruments keep a chord or a tune for 2 or 3 seconds If this album would have been cut down to 30 minutes, it would have been a pretty good and promising release.

About five months after Wilde arrived at Reading Gaol, Charles Thomas Wooldridgea trooper in the Royal Horse Guards, was brought to Reading to await his trial for murdering his common-law wife and promptly presenting himself and confessing to a policeman on 29 March ; on 17 June, Wooldridge was sentenced to death and returned to Reading for his execution, which took place on Tuesday, 7 July —the first hanging at Reading in 18 years.

The poem is dedicated to him as C. Wilde was released from prison on 18 May and he promptly went to France, The Ballad Of Peter Blackfrog - Longshot (3) - Asylum (CD) returning to Britain. He died in Paris, at the age of 46, on 30 November While in France, surviving on an allowance from his wife of three pounds a week—deliberately meagre to discourage the sort of high living that had led to his 'downfall'—Wilde endeavoured to find additional money. The Ballad Of Peter Blackfrog - Longshot (3) - Asylum (CD) Augusthe sent the publisher Leonard Smithers an initial draft of the Ballad, which made such an impression that Smithers was enthusiastic about publishing it and even approached Aubrey Beardsley to do an illustration for it which was not done.

Thereafter there was a very active correspondence between the two of them, as Wilde was repeatedly revising and expanding the text, and supervising from afar the choice and size of typeface and the layout of the work. However, even the printing house hired to do the book demanded a change—for fear that the prison doctor would sue over the line which originally read "While the coarse-mouthed doctor gloats", it was changed to "While some coarse-mouthed doctor gloats".

As one biographer, Leonard Cresswell Inglebysaid, "Never, perhaps, since Gray 's Elegy had a poem been so revised, pruned, and polished over and over again as this cry from a prison cell". Originally the first edition—with no assurance of a second edition—was planned for only copies, but when Wilde calculated the printing expenses, he realised that even selling all would not cover costs, and at his instigation Smithers instructed the printing house to double the number of copies and keep the printing plates in hopes of a reprinting.

As publication day approached, Wilde was occasionally seized by a sort of panic over his finances and the risks of the poem failing to sell well, and made some half-hearted efforts to sell the poem's copyright for immediate cash; there were only a few disappointing nibbles and no such sale was made. Fortunately, the poem sold very well and very quickly, and caused such a stir that subsequent printings also sold well for more than a year, assuring Wilde of a steady income which he did not outlive, as he died less than four years after the Ballad The Ballad Of Peter Blackfrog - Longshot (3) - Asylum (CD) appeared.

It has been suggested [14] that Wilde was, to some degree, inspired by poem IX in A. Housman 's A Shropshire Ladwhich alludes to the hanging of condemned prisoners:. They hang us now in Shrewsbury jail: The whistles blow forlorn, And trains all night groan on the rail To men that die at dawn. Although there is no specific documentation to show Wilde's active revising after the appearance of the first edition, there were some slight changes made in the second edition, which was printed only two weeks after the first edition went on sale.

For example, in the first edition a line read "And his step was light", and in the second edition it becomes "And his step seemed light". These tiny alterations persisted through the seventh edition, the last edition handled by Smithers, and thereafter to most of the reprints.

Wilde did acknowledge evidently to several people, since numerous separate sources The Ballad Of Peter Blackfrog - Longshot (3) - Asylum (CD) this a glaring error in the very first line of the poem, "He did not wear his scarlet coat"—because Wooldridge, as a member of the Royal Horse Guards, had a blue uniform—but justified this poetic licence because the second line would make no sense if it said "For blood and wine are blue ".

Yet each man kills the thing he loves By each let this be heard. Some do it with a bitter look, Some with a flattering word. The coward does it with a kiss, The brave man with a sword! The line is a nod to Shakespeare 's The Merchant of Venicewhen Bassanio asks "Do all men kill the things they do not love?

A passage from the poem was chosen as the epitaph on Wilde's tomb. And alien tears will fill for him, Pity's long-broken urn, For his mourners will be outcast men, And outcasts always mourn. So with curious eyes and sick surmise We watched him day by day, And wondered if each one of us Would end the self-same way, For none can tell to what red Hell His sightless soul may stray.
