Description

The Chameleon was an Oxford University journal. This issue from 1894 contains Oscar Wilde's Phrases and Philosophies for Use of the Young and the poem 'Two Loves' by Alfred Lord Douglas, which was used in the trial against Wilde for 'acts of gross indecency'. The poem's last line, 'I am the love that dare not speak its name', was regarded as an allusion to homosexual love.
