9780465044399: The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde

In The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde, Neil McKenna provides stunning new insight into the tumultuous sexual and psychological worlds of this brilliant and tormented figure. McKenna charts Wilde’s astonishing odyssey through London’s sexual underworld, and provides explosive new evidence of the political machinations behind Wilde’s trials for sodomy. Dazzlingly written and meticulously researched, The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde offers a vividly original portrait of a troubled genius who chose to martyr himself for the cause of love between men.

From the Inside Flap:

Oscar Wilde was not only extremely sexually promiscuous but also a campaigner for sexual freedom, argues McKenna. His last days in Paris were not miserable either; as Paris gave him freedom from the narrowness of London.
