Sitting up reading late at night, the author reflects on the links between the homosexual of the 1980s and his counterparts of a century ago, between gay lives today and those of Oscar Wilde, his friends, lovers and acquaintances. Many books have been written about Oscar Wilde. Who Was That Man? is unique - the acting out of a love-hate relationship between Wilde and a gay Londoner of today. Neil Bartlett has grabbed history by the collar and made bitter love to it. I can think of no other way to describe this fantastic personal meditation on Oscar Wilde and the last hundred years of English homosexuality. At the very moment gay existence is endangered by disease and a renewed puritanism, Bartlett has embraced what was alien and criminal or merely clinical and loved it into poignant life - Edmund White… (mere)

Excellent book. A very personal meditation from a gay Londoner writing in the 1980s on Oscar Wilde and various Victorian Uranians. The author never pretends to be an objective historian or biographer, only insists that he is an obsessive fan who has spent considerable time loving/hating someone he can only know through images and text. As a result I don't think I have ever read anything about lives lived 100 years ago that felt so immediately relevant. Constructed out of bits of history, 80s history included, and quotes from trials and poetry and letters, fragmented but it glitters. He really must have wanted Oscar to be proud of his prose. ( )

'Who was that man?' is the meditation of a gay Londoner in the 1980's searching for himself and the gay world of the 1890's that Oscar Wilde lived in (or visited, really). It's non-fiction but written in much the same style as 'The House on Brooke St'. Bartlett weaves his own experiences and those of Wilde, of rent boys and drag queens together with quotes from books, plays and newspaper articles, police reports together with descriptions, musings and dialogue. A dense dreamlike maze of a book full of glittering prose. ( )

A strange sort of book, very 1890s and very 1990s, comprising essay-like stories (or possibly story-like essays) reflecting on the role the Oscar Wilde trials played in making homosexuality a topic that could be discussed in turn-of-the-century Britain. Not quite a historical novel, not quite lit crit, not quite history. Interesting as a document of a very odd period in the history of academic writing as well as for its actual subject-matter.
