    I'm currently focusing on De Profundis by Oscar Wilde in the language side of my english lit & lang class (Edexcel) and currently using the excerpt provided in the Voices in Speech and Writing Anthology.

    I'm in the process of annotating MAP (Mode, Audience and Purpose) however I can't find anything for how we know who his audience is and who is his audience.

    Can anyone give me a couple of points or help me find any? It would be much appreciated!

    hey, i don't know if it's too late but for audience, it's Wilde himself; his awareness of likely publication; primary audience could be his fans, contemporary writers, academics, commentators and journalists, the wider late victorian and early Edwardian establishment, the newspapers and general public. Secondary audience could be students of literature due to his status as a literary icon, British/Irish historians, students of social history, gender and gay studies and theories and the wider public
