This is the story of the life of Sir Edward Carson with a strong emphasis on his career as an advocate. Carson became a wellknown Irish QC before moving from Dublin to London as MP for Trinity College, and continued his legal career in London, where he soon became an English QC, the rising star in the legal firmament, and the acknowledged leader of the London Bar.
Carson is well known for his defence of the Marquess of Queensbury in the Oscar Wilde trial, one of the most famous and tragic cases ever tried in the English Courts. The author gives an eloquent, poignant and riveting account of Carson’s cross-examination of Wilde – a legendary contest between these two famous Irishmen who had been fellow-students at Trinity.
