Unfortunately the Rosen article is not public (open to the) but the bit of Verlaine's letter quoted makes me wonder how much Wilde knew about the Verlaine-Rimbaud affair … well, he must have known near everything about it, which poses for me the question to what extent it he took it as a caution for him and Bosie (to which the answer is, obviously, not enough!).
