Title

"The Dead Poet" published in the Greeley Tribune (1930)

Subject

Oscar Wilde

Description

This poem, written by Lord Alfred Douglas, a young man who had a torrid homosexual relationship with Wilde and eventually was the key witness in his arrest and incarceration for "gross indecency" in 1895, appears in full, without comment in the Greeley Tribune in 1930. It is an unusual and relatively obscure poem that implictly references a homosexual relationship. It is possible the poem's publication was inspired by a presentation on Wilde's life held by the Windsor Women's Club a week before the poem's publication, in March 1830.
