520 8  I do not say you are it, but you look it, and you pose at 
       it, which is just as bad," Lord Queensbury challenged 
       Oscar Wilde in the courtroom which erupted in laughter 
       accusing Wilde of posing as a sodomite. What was so 
       terrible about posing as a sodomite, and why was 
       Queensbury's horror greeted with such amusement? In Oscar 
       Wilde Prefigured, Dominic Janes suggests that what divided
       the two sides in this case was not so much the question of
       whether Wilde was or was not a sodomite, but whether or 
       not it mattered that people could appear to be sodomites. 
       For many, intimations of sodomy were simply a part of the 
       amusing spectacle of sophisticated life.Oscar Wilde 
       Prefigured is a study of the prehistory of this "queer 
       moment" in 1895. Janes explores the complex ways in which 
       men who desired sex with men in Britain had expressed such
       interests through clothing, style, and deportment since 
       the mid-eighteenth century. He supplements the well-
       established narrative of the inscription of sodomitical 
       acts into a homosexual label and identity at the end of 
       the nineteenth century by teasing out the means by which 
       same-sex desires could be signaled through visual display 
       in Georgian and Victorian Britain.
