The dramatic story of the legal and emotional battle that raged between two of Oscar Wilde's closest friends – both former lovers – following the playwright's death After the death of Oscar Wilde, two of the playwright's closest friends—both former lovers—went to battle against each other over who would control the narrative about Wilde's life, and who history would blame for his death. The battle between Lord Alfred "Bosie" Douglas, the playwright's greatest love, and Robert Ross, Wilde's friend and literary executor, led to the revelation of sexual secrets and personal letters, blackmail, stalking, and no fewer than five lawsuits.
