Aprašymas

Famed as the most beautiful undergraduate in Oxford of his day and remembered as the lover of Oscar Wilde, Lord Alfred Douglas, or Bosie as he was always known, remains one of the most notorious figures in literary history.

In this fascinating and passionate biography, Douglas Murray explores fully, for the first time, the mass of contradictions that made up Bosie's life.

Bosie's deep and enduring friendship with Oscar Wilde continued throughout the trials and subsequent imprisonment of Wilde and on until his death in 1900. Soon after, Bosie surprisingly, eloped and started a family, finding brief tranquillity in this and his poetry. His spiralling debts and battles with the remainder of the Wilde circle cut short his happiness, and his libelling of Winston Churchill led to his own imprisonment, followed by a semi-reclusive state until his death in 1945.

Douglas Murray succeeded in securing the release of a Home Office file which was to be sealed until 2043. With this new material and fresh insight Bosie is here seen as a significant poet whose tragedy extended far beyond his lover's death a century ago, into a world which could never forgive or forget him.

Born in 1979, Douglas Murray is currently an undergraduate at Magdalen College, Oxford. This is his first book.
