    s only shield against the beatings up of outrageous fortune He could have made it a weapon but he is too kind or perhaps too indifferent ever to hurt anyone His eternal response to life has been If you like If you want to He has given submissiveness a new meaning and it could do with one Still I would hesitate to engage him in verbal combat in his seventy odd years of life he has invented and polished and stored away ready for use more bright sword thrusts than I would know how to parry John Hurt who brilliantly impersonated Quentin in the television version of The Naked Civil Servant seems to have filled him not only with admiration Very cozy was his exact comment but with a desire to do likewise Quentin is now busily engaged in seeing whether he too can impersonate Quentin at least the present day Quentin Hardly a day passes it seems without his popping up on my television screen being interviewed giving his opinions posing as for years he has posed in the art schools of the Home Counties being what in truth he always was a well known personality Quentin s hair

  • CRISPERANTO.ORG: All Things Quentin Crisp! The Quentin Crisp Archives: A Centennial Celebration
    I went to stay in London with my grandmother in a flat belonging to a friend of his that I realized how different he was from the rest of the population I remember he took me to the theatre to a matinee sitting in the stalls with the blue rinse brigade of ladies He wore a green suit and when he took off his jacket he had on an off the shoulder sweater I think most of them thought he was just one of them Going out with him was not always quite as easy as sometimes people used to shout abuse and push him into the gutter But I followed his response and took no notice This was in 1948 and from then until the The Naked Civil Servant was filmed in 1973 he was treated in much the same way I always saw him from time to time in Chelsea in the cafes and in his room He was always kind and generous to me and introduced me to his friends Then in 1970 he started doing his one man shows An Evening with Quentin Crisp and he became not only accepted but also revered by the public

    But he didn t To the contrary For the whole two hours of its duration the eyes of the audience was glued to the action on stage largely because Quentin sat enthroned there the whole time It is a play that probably should have been called Lord Alfred Douglas Comes Clean If Quentin wasn t an actor he was something that had great value to the performance of this play I called him my Rock of Gibraltar In rehearsal he was my Rock of Ages There was an emotional upheaval at one rehearsal A rather unpleasant young man with no great heterosexual credentials himself called my stage manager a Faggot and worse which I cannot repeat to the refined persons reading this note I rebuked him sternly He shouted profanities at me and enjoyed the fact that I too was a Faggot So I got really flustered and angry and fired him raising my voice as I had never done in my life Why am I bringing up such sordid details Because when I turned to Quentin hoping maybe that he would do some shouting too he looked me candidly in the eye and said very quietly I shall remain
