How wonderful to receive the OW Society publication Intentions — and a privilege to see my contribution to this eminent publication!
It was also exciting to see in a bookshop this week a copy of Oscariana, the book Wilde’s wife compiled with a collection of her husband’s aphorisms.
London is wonderful!
At last I have had articles published in both TARS and OW Society publications!
Truly though, it is important never to lose our connection to the great classics in literature!
I have also engaged in activities to bring the incredible, amazing, lost story of these two authors and the links A R unwittingly unlocked between Wilde and Douglas to a wider platform.
These authors, thought poles apart, actually had much more in common than people think!
O W Society member Mr John Cooper has highlighted that O W shared A R’s love of life on the ocean wave, was at the very least a competent sailor and certainly an enthusiastic one!
A R also unwittingly unlocked the key to the enigmatic relationship between Oscar Wilde and Douglas in his own masterpiece lost to society in 2018.
Both men were both part of Cool Britannia!
