The Genius and the Rebel

Here is the story lost to literature and modern society; the connection between Oscar Wilde and the world famous Swallows and Amazons author Arthur Ransome.   It was made in co-operation with Lancaster Royal Grammar School and Lancaster Film Makers’ Co-op in March 2015.

 

 

Thanks everyone!

Leeds Library Festival

Leeds library is a truly inspiring place to visit and during the festival there were an awe-inspiring range of art and craft workshops, presentations and hubs to choose from.

The last item yesterday was my talk Wilde Ransomed about how A R made Wilde in the twentieth century by his book Oscar Wilde: A Critical Study.

He was the perfect choice of subject because Ransome is a Leeds native.

The Leeds Central Library manager Rose was kindly on hand to help with the technology.

It was a wonderful day and everyone agreed they had learned something new about the most famous and notorious relationship in the world between Wilde and Douglas.

Oscar Wilde: A Critical Study by Ransome is a work to celebrate because it has also led to the discovery in our time of a story lost in scandal.

As a drink why not try opal hush? (It is in the far right photo).

This is what Ransome used to drink along with his rebel actors, playwrights and poets from The Abbey Theatre in Dublin.

It is a combination of claret and lemonade.

Do you like it?

I have tried it and recommend it!

Enjoy!
