Inhalt
Lord Alfred Douglas, or Bosie as he was called from childhood, is chiefly remembered for his relationship with Oscar Wilde - who, at the height of his fame, was sued and, after a couple of sensational trials, has been sentenced to two years hard labour for homosexual practices. The scandal destroyed him and ruined Bosie's life as well. But who is this man that Oscar Wilde so madly fell in love with? Caspar Wintermans's biography is exploring that question. He was a considerable poet, but his work has always been overshadowed by his involvement in the Wilde affair. His verse, meticulously crafted, did not appeal to the post-war generation, but the time is ripe for a rediscovery of his work - which one can try with this book, as it has a fully annotated selection of the verse, including the famous line »I am the love that dare not speak its name«.
