    Oscar Wilde and Alfred Jarry (1873-1907), author 's Ubu Roi , met May 19, 1898, the anniversary of the liberation of Wilde of Reading Gaol. Henry Davray friend of Jarry and angliciste the Mercure de France , had organized the visit in advance. Jarry already knew Alfred Douglas and artist Eric Forbes-Robertson, brother of Frances Forbes-Robertson, the great friend of Wilde. In 1894 in Pont-Aven, Eric Forbes-Robertson had drawn the portrait of Jarry and had worked the first issue of his newspaper, The ymagier the same year. [1] Although Wilde and Jarry did not meet again during the eighteen months that remained to live in Oscar Wilde, Jarry did not forget and continued to send its books. He respected Wilde for the courage he showed in confronting his own English law, in defense of homosexuality.
