"That Wilde chose "Bunbury" as the name for double identities may 
prove telling. Wilde is one of history's more (in)famous homosexuals, 
convicted in 1895 for homosexual sodomy with Lord Alfred Douglas 
("Bosie"). Prior to that, Wilde made greater attempts to hide his 
sexual orientation, even marrying. Is Wilde connecting his characters' 
need to Bunbury to his own dual identities‹his public, heterosexual 
one (he was married) and his private, homosexual one? Some critical 
attention has been given to the word "Bunbury." Separating "bun" 
and "bury," some read it as a description of male-to-male intercourse. 
Indeed, it has been confirmed that there are several allusions to 
London's homosexual world intended for Wilde's contemporary, 
homosexual audience. However, we can read a homosexual subtext into 
many of the lines now: "Nothing will induce me to part with Bunbury. A 
man who marries without knowing Bunbury has a very tedious time of 
it." Aside from continuing the motif of intercourse with the 
word "part," Algernon clearly relates the need for an alter ego to the 
oppressive sexuality of marriage.
