This is the first collection of critical essays that explores Oscar Wilde’s interest in children’s culture, whether in relation to his famous fairy stories, his life as a caring father to two small boys, his place as a defender of children’s rights within the prison system, his fascination with youthful beauty, and his theological contemplation of what it means to be a child in the eyes of God. The collection also examines the ways in which Wilde’s works—not just his fairy stories—have been adapted for young audiences.

This featured Orson Welles (narrator), Bing Crosby (as The Prince) and Lurene Tuttle as The Swallow. A record album called The Happy Prince was recorded and issued in 1946 by American Decca Records, with Orson Welles narrating and Bing Crosby as the Prince. In 1968 the Bee Gees publish the song "When the Swallows fly" with clear references to The Happy Prince tale. An animated film adaptation of the story was produced in 1974, starring Glynis Johns as the swallow and Christopher Plummer as the Prince. Adaptations have continued over the years, the most recent in 2019; Viki produced an adaption of the manga “Zattai Kareshi” by Yuu Watase.

This study examines the work of children's writers from the 19th and 20th centuries in order to expose the persuasive power of language. Looking at the work of 19th century English writers of juvenile fiction, Knowles and Malmkjaer expose the colonial and class assumptions on which the books were predicated. In the modern teen novel and the work of Roald Dahl the authors find contemporary attempts to control children within socially established frameworks. Other authors discussed include, Oscar Wilde, E. Nesbit, Lewis Carroll and C.S. Lewis.

In the same way that students of Shakespeare discuss their "Supreme Quartet" of plays, so Irish Studies has its own quartet of writers, Yeats, Joyce, Beckett and Wilde, whose fame is outstanding and worldwide. The inclusion of Wilde in the quartet may surprise some, but it is an incontrovertible fact that scholars are coming to appreciate Wilde's importance as a major influence on 20th century literature. Over the past years, conferences on all four members of this Irish quartet have been organized by the Princess Grace Irish Library of Monaco (the proceedings of each being published in this series), the most recent, on Wilde, in 1993. This collection of papers given at that conference, covers every aspect of Wilde's oeuvre, not only considering his plays, poetry and novels, but his family, his influence on writers both in English (such as Joyce and Stoppard) and in other languages (including Marti, Dario, Borges and Lispector). How influential and far-reaching he has become can be seen by the nationalities of those who attended the conference and contributed papers: Antonio Ballesteros Gonzalez, Mariano Baselga, Pia Brinzeu, Edward Burns, Richard Allen Cave, Davis Coakley, Jean M. Ellis D'Allessandro, Masolino D' Amico, Lawrence Danson, Denis Donoghue, Joseph Donoghue, Irene Eynat-Confino, Michael Patrick Gillespie, Robert Gordon, Warwick Gould, Merlin Holland, Joel H. Kaplan, Patricia Kellogg-Dennis, Melissa Knox, Jacques de Langlade, Donald Lawler, Jerusha Mccormack, Bart J. Moore-Gilbert, Isobel Murray, Sylvia Ostermann, Norman Page, Kerry Powell, Maria Pilar Pulido, Peter Raby, Gerd Rohmann, Roy Rosenstein, Neil Sammells, Ronald Schuchard, Theorharis Constantine Theoharis, Deirdre Toomey, Emmaneul Vernadakis, and Marie-Noelle Zeender. This is the eighth volume in the Princess Grace Irish Library Series.

Designed to take you from the moment you first put pen to paper to the point at which you are ready to start contacting publishers (or uploading an ebook file), this is the most important book on writing children's books you'll ever read. It introduces you to the craft of writing for children, the art of words - and pictures - and the way in which to use them. It gives you inspiration, ideas and practical advice. It gives you the background to each different area of children's writing, and the skills you'll need to succeed. Unlike any other book on the market, however, it also helps you begin to critique your own work, meaning that at every step of the writing process you'll be producing the best art you can. There are plenty of other essential writing tools in this book, as well, including techniques for overcoming writer's block; with nearly a quarter of the book focussing on how to get published, how to publish yourself, which courses you do - and don't - need, the nuts and bolts of competitions and festivals and the importance of social media, this really is the most comprehensive companion to the subject available.

The Colours We Choose

Colours figure highly in this second book of short stories by Deryck Whittaker. Whether they be the auspicious or otherwise hues of a north-oriented front door; the red of the ubiquitous laterite of the African bush; the grey amber essential to perfume manufacture; the dark green of a coveted Finnish glass piece; the magenta of the colour shift in old photos; the blue eponym of an extreme right wing movement or the orange of a swimming costume bought in M&S by a woman of a certain age. As in Whittaker’s earlier book, we find ourselves in an array of locations worldwide, and introduced to a near-debauched community on a suburban housing estate; Oscar Wilde; Dante; Gabriel Rossetti; Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick; a thinly disguised General Pinochet and Idi Amin; a superannuated Superman and a cast of characters from the Guinness Book of Records. It’s a voyage in which we encounter the quick and the dead, the obese, the doomed, the obsessive, the haunted, the guilty, the guilt-ridden and the thankful. It will interest readers who enjoy short tales and quick wit. Critical praise for Cheese and Other Stories: “Whittaker is a master of stylish language, agile in both dialogue and descriptive settings. The stories are dazzlingly constructed and marbled with memorable passages...” The Nation (Bangkok)
