Wilde's "sun-flower and lily theory" (1882)

Dublin Core

Title

Wilde's "sun-flower and lily theory" (1882)

Subject

Oscar Wilde

Description

The Fort Collins Courier notes that Wilde had begun "transplanting" his "sun-flower and lily theory" to the West coast. While this sounds like a horticultural act, it is actually metaphorical. Both "sun-flower" and "lily" here are references to Wilde's theory of aestheticism.

En route to the West coast, Wilde stopped in the Cheyenne, Wyoming train depot. He later returned to Colorado after his California swing of the tour in 1882.
