Lord Alfred Douglas is most remembered for his love affair with Oscar Wilde, which led to Wilde’s imprisonment. But Douglas went on to marry Olive Custance, a decadent poet who also enjoyed affairs with other women. This talk by Dr Sarah Parker traces the life of this fascinating woman and explores her unusual relationship with ‘Bosie’.
