The Inn of Dreams

Poems by Olive Custance
  • By Edwin James King, Olive Custance
$6.99
($7.90)
Olive Custance was the beautiful wife of Lord Alfred Douglas, the disgraced lover of Oscar Wilde. Apart from that, the literary world knows little of her today. Her reputation lies very much in the shadow of the men who knew and loved her. And yet this woman was a gifted poet in her own right and a friend of many key figures of the 'fin de siecle'. In this edition of The Inn of Dreams, a selection of poems made by Custance herself in 1911, editor Edwin King casts new light on the woman and her work with a substantial biographical introduction. It is about time for lovers of poetry for rediscover this charming girl who once wrote to her husband: "Like a shy child I bring you all my songs.""
