[Referring to America, probably based on his lifelong desire for self-determination].
WHERE IT WAS SAID
In 1883 after Wilde returned from his year long lecture tour in America he penned notes for a talk entitled Impressions of America (aka Personal Impressions of America) which he gave in various cities across Britain and Ireland in the following few years.
The quotation about FREEDOM and LIBERTY comes from that lecture.
WHERE IT APPEARED
In booklet form:
In March 1906 Stuart Mason, Wilde's future bibliographer, published a booklet of the text (opposite, Mason 653) in a limited edition of 500 copies. The quotation appears as the last lines of the text.
