    After nearly two years in prison, one of the most famous writers, who "stood in symbolic relations to the art and culture",
    was released on that day, 19 May, in 1897.
     

     

    Dear Colleagues,

    If you teach English to adults from different cultural backgrounds, and whose countries' traditions, morals, and current laws are extremely varied, a piece from a text by Oscar Wilde, attached here, can be of interest to read and discuss with your students.

    I believe such texts can also give us, teachers, some guidelines, and help, particularly if we want to cultivate the spirit of resilience and mutual support.

    Best regards,
