In the spring of 1895, Victorian England was gripped by the drama that was unfolding in the courthouse at the Old Bailey in London. A heady mixture of sex, intrigue, art and morality were the underlying themes of the three trials of Oscar Wilde, the flamboyant playwright and poet whose flagrant disregard for conventional morality was ultimately to lead to his downfall. This book contains extracts from those trials, which must count among the saddest, yet wittiest, cases ever heard.
