Description Yet Each Man Kills the Thing he Loves weaves two of Oscar Wilde's last works, An Ideal Husband and The Ballad of Reading Gaol...Although written in very different personal circumstances - the first, when Wilde was at the height of his popularity and the second, when he was physically destroyed and socially outcast - both works are concerned with the suffering caused by a society seemingly without compassion.
