Abstract: O. Wilde considers that Christ ranks with the poets and Shelley and Sophocles are of his company. Nevertheless, the result of this comparison becomes unfavourable as far Sophocles is concerned, who, precisely as a poet can reach neither the sublimity nor the real tragic sufferance which Christ symbolises. According to Wilde, Christ is both a poet and a tragic poem, while Sophocles is merely a poet, thus being certified the impossibility of the above mentioned comparison.
