The green carnation - PDF Novel by Robert Hichens

The green carnation 

Review by Anna
I love to read a good satire and this novel is a satirical picture of noble society in Victorian England. It's funny and bizarre, with many references to prominent people and important events of the time.

The Green Carnation, first published anonymously in 1894, was a scandalous novel by Robert Hichens whose lead characters are closely based on Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas – also known as "Bosie", whom the author personally knew. It was an instant succès de scandale on both sides of the Atlantic.

The reviewer for The Observer wrote, "The Green Carnation will be read and discussed by everyone... nothing so impudent, so bold, or so delicious has been printed these many years."
