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!
