Tomb of oscar wilde

This is the tomb of Oscar Wilde. I was disappointed to see the damage done to it by tourists. It was full of "kisses", hearts and all kinds of messages from people all over the world inscribed on it. I do not understand why this tomb together with that of Jim Morrison are not guarded. I can also not understand how people can find it fun to do these things.

A full grave kisses

Oscar Wilde died in Paris in 1900, morally and financially ruined after the process that took two years to prison in England for "immorality" (for homosexual relations without hiding, actually). Shortly after his death his works sold again, with rights bought land friends in the Père Lachaise Cemetery and an anonymous donor provided a very important amount of money to the grave with the only condition that did the sculptor Jacob Epstein. If you want to know your story come into ',' where you discover its peculiar history: the theft of the genitals of the sculpture and its final destination, the thousands and thousands of kisses that have given for decades. ..

Una tumba llena de besos

Oscar Wilde murió en París en 1900, arruinado moral y económicamente después del proceso que le llevó dos años a la cárcel en Inglaterra por "inmoralidad" (por mantener relaciones homosexuales sin esconderse, en realidad). Al poco de su muerte sus obras volvieron a venderse, con los derechos sus amigos compraron un terreno en el cementerio del Père Lachaise y un donante anónimo entregó una cantidad de dinero muy importante para la tumba con la única condición de que la hiciera el escultor Jacob Epstein. Si queréis conocer su historia entrad en ',' donde también descubriréis su peculiar historia: el robo de los genitales de la escultura y su destino final, los miles y miles de besos que le han dado durante décadas...

This is the tomb of oscar wilde. i wa...

This is the Tomb of Oscar Wilde. I was sorry to see the degradation that many tourists have caused. It was full of "kisses", and all kinds of messaggino hearts of people all over the world written with markers ... I do not understand how the side of the grave of Jim Morrison there is a guard day and night, as is the tomb of Oscar Wilde is so abandoned and how people can have fun to ruin it.

Questa è la Tomba di Oscar Wilde. Sono rimasto dispiaciuto nel vedere il degrado che molti turisti hanno provocato. Era piena di "baci", cuori e ogni tipo di messaggino di gente di ogni parte del mondo scritti con pennarelli... Non capisco come al lato della tomba di Jim Morrison ci sia una guardia giorno e notte e come invece la tomba di Oscar Wilde venga così abbandonata e come la gente possa divertirsi a rovinarla.
