One of these is the original shorter version of the poem, originally edited by Wilde's good friend, Robbie Ross, for vocal recitation. Wilde's early poem "Humanitad" is also included as it has striking stylistic parallels with "The Ballad" and reveals the continuity of Wilde's work over the duration of his career.

    The novelist and short story writer Edward Upward (1903-2009) is famous for being the unknown member of the W. H. Auden circle, though he was revered by his peers - Auden, Day Lewis, Isherwood, and Spender - for his intellect, high literary gifts, and unswerving political commitment. His lifelong friendship with Christopher Isherwood was forged at school and university, with each regarding the other as the first reader of his work. At Cambridge they invented the bizarre village of Mortmere, which with its combination of reality and fantasy had an important role in shaping the dominant British literary culture of the 1930s.

Many volumes of poetry and numerous plays followed, including three with spiritual themes: "Jesus: A Passion Play", "David and Bathsheba", and "The Wife of Marobius". Ehrmann was not a Christian, but this reinterpretation in verse of The Wisdom of Jesus Son of Sirach, better known as the book of Ecclesiastes from the Bible, was done with a deep respect for the philosophical wisdom contained in the original Greek manuscript.
