Wilde and Crouch End

 

 

Oscar Wilde’s most famous play produced by Classic Spring is also featuring at the Art House cinema Crouch End.

Crouch End is a delightful place not overrun by tourists.

Here are some photos of the park there in Wilde’s favourite month – Autumn.

 

 

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 and Arthur Detective Masters!

Anne Gaelan with Gyles Brandreth

Location: Chester Cathedral June 2017 Mr Brandreth very kindly autographed the Reading Gaol and Candlelight Murders.

The President of The Oscar Wilde Society Mr Gyles Brandreth has surely made Wilde in the twenty-first century with his Oscar Wilde murder mystery books.
In these books Wilde turns amateur sleuth and solves crimes along with Conan Doyle!
Entertaining, witty and eminently readable, they capture the essence of Wilde.
Mr Brandreth will be at The Platform in Morecambe in July this year.
