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.
