Alfred Douglas, known to many as "Bosie" is remembered mostly for his tumultuous and highly publicized love affair with Oscar Wilde. He is also known for his work as a minor English poet. Born October 22, 1870, Lord Douglas was the third son of John Sholto Douglas, ninth Marquess of Queensberry, and Sibyl, née Montgomery. Douglas met Oscar Wilde through a mutual friend in early summer, 1891, and their relationship is legendary. Douglas wrote this biography in response to Wilde's publication of "De Profundis," a post trial book in which he criticizes his former lover. Though their relationship was strained by the trial, and they ended their affair, the two remained friends. This volume is a fascinating read
