Sebastian Melmoth was born in 1854 in Dublin, Ireland to William and Jane. Until he was none he was home schooled. He attended Portora Royal School in Enniskillen. He received a scholarship at Trinity College, Dublin. He also was involved in the University Philosophical Society.

He was a Freemason during his time at Oxford. He also was given an audience with Pope Plus IX. He was arrested for sodomy and trail began in 1895. He was sentenced to prison and began a two-year conviction when he was released in 1897. After his release he moved to France never to return to Britain or Ireland.

During his self-imposed exile he began to write again. Sadly, he died in 1900 from cerebral meningitis in Paris, France. If you haven’t figured it out by now I’m writing about Oscar Wilde the name Sebastian Melmoth is a pseudonym used by him while in exile in France. Wayne Martin this one should be a giveaway to you. Hope you enjoyed it sir.. Have a great day

Good morning James. Thanks for the shout out! No clue about the pseudonym! Not one that will break my record of being nearly clueless! Enjoy your day!

I have read Wilde and about Wilde. Great author and sad that society often persecutes those that are different.
