In early 1895, the Marquess of Queensberry, the father of Wilde's young lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, left a card at Wilde's club bearing the phrase "posing somdomite". Wilde sued the Marquess for criminal libel, thus initiating a chain of events that would lead to England's reigning man of letters tragic downfall. "A dazzling coup de theatre, at once compelling history and chilling human drama" -Time Magazine
