Oscar Wilde’s loyal friend Reggie: Reginald Turner in Florence

27 May 2020 - 18:00

Virtual Cultural Event, on Zoom

by Mark Roberts 

 

When Oscar Wilde was imprisoned for ‘gross indecency’ in 1895, one of the few friends who remained loyal to him was Reginald Turner (1869-1938). Oscar once prophesied that Reggie would end up living in Florence, and so it proved. This talk investigates Turner’s Florentine contacts with literary figures such as D.H. Lawrence, Norman Douglas and W. Somerset Maugham.

 

The talk will last about 40 mins, and will be followed by a discussion using the power of video conferencing.  

 

We request that you make a donation (however much is comfortable for you) if you wish to participate in the sessions. Your donations will help keep the Institute afloat at this difficult time; and we will give 50% of the money we receive to "Firenze per Firenze",  a local funding programme that is addressing the social and economic crisis that the city of Florence is currently facing.

Thank you for your support.
