Oscar Wilde also became a Catholic in his last days.

And one of my favorite poets, Wallace Stevens, became a Catholic in the hospital where he died, although his daughter Holly has tried to cover it up.

I didn’t know that about Wallace Stevens. I have always really liked his work and thought that he was a sort of “crypto-Catholic” (and perhaps hidden even to himself).
