El marques y el sodomita: Oscar Wilde ante la justicia

Overview

In 1895, John Douglas, Marquess of Queensbury and father of Alfred Douglas—Oscar Wilde’s intimate friend and lover—left a note at the Albemarle Club for the playwright addressing him as a “sodomite.” Unable to let the slight pass, and egged on by Alfred, Wilde sued the marquess for libel, thus initiating a sensational trial that would result in the sentencing of the former to two years of hard labor.

Overview

In 1895, John Douglas, Marquess of Queensbury and father of Alfred Douglas—Oscar Wilde’s intimate friend and lover—left a note at the Albemarle Club for the playwright addressing him as a “sodomite.” Unable to let the slight pass, and egged on by Alfred, Wilde sued the marquess for libel, thus initiating a sensational trial that would result in the sentencing of the former to two years of hard labor. This fascinating chronicle of the trial gathers heretofore inaccessible transcripts and portrays Wilde with all of his eloquence, wit, and theatricality, qualities that were nonetheless unable to prevent—and, indeed, may have contributed to—his conviction. This riveting account will appeal to Wilde enthusiasts, fans of literature, and legal scholars.

 En 1895, John Douglas, el marqués de Queensbury y padre de Alfred Douglas—el enamorado de Oscar Wilde—envió al club Albermarle una nota dirigida al dramaturgo en el cual se refirió a él como un “sodomita.” Indispuesto a ignorar la ofensa, y con el aliento de su joven galán, Wilde demandó por calumnia al marqués e inició un escandaloso juicio que acabaría sentenciando al primero a dos años de trabajos forzados. Esta crónica fascinante del juicio reúne hasta ahora inaccesibles autos del pleito y presenta a Wilde con toda su elocuencia, su ingenio y su teatralidad, cualidades que no obstante fueron incapaces de prevenir—y aún pueden haber contribuido a—su condena. Este relato apasionante atraerá a fanáticos de Wilde y de la literatura, así como estudiantes del derecho.
