»The roses in her garden fade away / Not one left for her grave« – that’s what The Zombies sang in their song A Rose for Emily, released in 1968. As for Oscar Wilde you have to say: »The kisses on his gravestone fade away«, because a newly installed glass barrier avoids lip marks of admirers that destroy the writer’s memorial. How long will that wall be transparent?
