We must credit providence that the board turned him down. James Whistler , from whom he learned the art of self-advertisement, eventually turned on him he had taught his protege too well. Arguably the turning points of his life were twofold: his meeting in with Robbie Ross , who initiated him in homosexual desire and the dangerous enchantments of a double life, and his later introduction to Alfred Douglas, AKA Bosie, whose vicious feud with his father, the 9th Marquess of Queensberry, became the millstones between which Wilde was helplessly ground to dust.

Can it be explained? He may be right. One might further speculate that Wilde saw martyrdom as an unavoidable part of his own narrative. His famous line about putting his talent into his work and his genius into his life was possibly more fatalistic than we know. Nothing in his work, not even The Importance of Being Earnest , could match the perfect story arc he might make of his life, just as he knew that nothing he wrote would ever surpass the evanescent brilliancies of his conversation.
Unfortunately the life went off on a script of its own. Life let him down in other ways, usually to do with money. Generous to others when he was in funds, he was an unapologetic scrounger in his continental exile and estranged friends with his ingratitude.
