News on Arthur and Oscar

I have re-joined The Oscar Wilde Society!

I have also worked regarding The Story of these two which is fascinating.

The British Library is a rich resource for further research on many topics and is well worth a visit.

Do get A R’s autobiography and absorb his amazing accounts of his experience during W W I as Remembrance Sunday approaches.

A friend of Lenin, he was at one point suspected of being Double Agent Ransome!

See you.

Poet in London

“The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it!”

This is the famous Wilde quote.  I have approached Classic Spring, currently producing The Importance of Being Earnest at The Vaudeville Theatre London.

Ah, the cucumber sandwiches!

There will also be an Oscar Wilde walk with fellow members of The Oscar Wilde Society at the end of the month.

More later.

Garden of Eros by Oscar Wilde

Poet’s continuing project with the lovely Miss G is scheduled for September.

Eave’s Wood in Silverdale  is a location suggestion as is Jenny Brown’s Point.

These are beauty spots of Lancashire.

Meanwhile, the weather is dull and windy in Morecambe.  Let’s hope for a mellow September and hope we can pass it off as June!

This post is late due to technical issues.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poet’s Search for A Swain: Oscar Wilde’s Garden of Eros – the Movie

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I am currently searching for a young actor aged 17-18 to play the part of a swain for a film of Oscar Wilde’s poem.

The film will be a voice-over with Miss G and her swain telling the story of young lovers through movement.

I accidentally met members of Morecambe Ramblers yesterday and left details to see if anyone can make suggestions for location shoots around Silverdale, one of Lancashire’s beauty spots and a tourist and walkers’ hotspot.

The shooting will be the end of August and the first few days in September now.

The situation now is that Poet is awaiting news from a youth group.

Thanks to photographers from Pexels for some of the shots for my slideshow.

Hope you enjoy it!

 

Gyles Brandreth President of The Oscar Wilde Society in Conversation with Poet

Oscar was a sailor!

Here is a fabulous update from Mr John Cooper.

Sailing was a large part of Wilde’s summer holiday in 1882!  He enjoyed a large amount of time, (several days) on Robert Rossevelt’s yacht “Heart’s Ease.”

It is a name very much appropriate to  both writers Arthur and Oscar!

It is also absolutely brilliant to know that another writer  connects Ransome to Wilde!

Thank you Mr John Cooper for sharing your information with Poet Speak!

WordPress does after all, connect people from round the world!

Oscar Wilde’s Garden of Eros, the Movie

Here is the exquisite Miss G, who will take the lead role in the film of Wilde’s Garden of Eros.

2018 is the perfect year for a female lead as it is the centenary of women asserting themselves and gaining the vote in the UK!

As you see, Miss G is the perfect choice for a Wilde heroine, combining the beauty of youth with rustic romanticism.

Enjoy the slides as we prepare for the film.

Next week – Hello, Mr President!

Wilde Screenplay, North-west Nugget (UK)

Here is an update on the present project-a film of Wilde’s poem Garden of Eros.

The characters are the Lover and Beloved, her lovestruck swain.

The idea is that they will move to a Voice Over.

I first studied screenwriting with The Arvon Foundation, gaining a bursery to do so.  It was near a place called Sheepwash in Devon.  The course was superb.  Centres are all over the United Kingdom.  More can be found on https://www.arvon.org/course/.

Ms Lucy Scher and Mr Paul Fraser were my tutors.

Raindance taught me about film production.

For their courses see https://www.raindance.org/courses/.

They also run a film festival.  Details are on https://www.raindance.org/festival/.

Their courses are excellent value for money and recommended!

Mr Ray Turner Director of Photography on most of my films has given permission to thank him for designing my logo since my initial post.

For more about him see http://www.lancastervideo.co.uk/.  He was instrumental in establishing Lancaster Film Makers’ Co-op.   For more about us see our YouTube link.
