Abstract:

Lord Alfred Douglas, or "Bosie" as he was known, is destined to be remembered as the lover of Oscar Wilde. Dissolute, wellborn, and beautiful as a young man, his role in the events that led to Oscar Wilde's trial and imprisonment determined the strange celebrity that haunted him until his death. Biographies of Wilde generally give only a cursory account of what happened to Douglas after Wilde's death, but Bosie recounts the full and absorbing story of his complex life. A successful though now obscure poet, he renounced homosexuality after converting to Roman Catholicism and embarked on an ill-fated marriage to Olive Custance. Lord Alfred's time was largely consumed by his growing interest in religion and costly feuds -- he was imprisoned for libeling Winston Churchill -- and he died a neglected and lonely figure in 1945. - Jacket flap.
