An innovative new edition of nine classic short stories from one of the greatest writers of the Victorian era. “I cannot think other than in stories,” Oscar Wilde once confessed to his friend André Gide. In this new selection of his short fiction, Wilde’s gifts as a storyteller are on full display, accompanied by informative facing-page annotations from Wilde biographer and scholar Nicholas Frankel. A wide-ranging introduction brings readers into the world from which the author drew inspiration. Each story in the collection brims with Wilde’s trademark wit, style, and sharp social criticism. Many are reputed to have been written for children, although Wilde insisted this was not true and that his stories would appeal to all “those who have kept the childlike faculties of wonder and joy.” “Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime” stands alongside Wilde’s comic masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest, while other stories—including “The Happy Prince,” the tale of a young ruler who had never known sorrow, and “The Nightingale and the Rose,” the story of a nightingale who sacrifices herself for true love—embrace the theme of tragic, forbidden love and are driven by an undercurrent of seriousness, even despair, at the repressive social and sexual values of Wilde’s day. Like his later writings, Wilde’s stories are a sweeping indictment of the society that would imprison him for his homosexuality in 1895, five years before his death at the age of forty-six. Published here in the form in which Victorian readers first encountered them, Wilde’s short stories contain much that appeals to modern readers of vastly different ages and temperaments. They are the perfect distillation of one of the Victorian era’s most remarkable writers.

The Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde's two collections of children's literature, The Happy Prince and Other Stories (1888) and A House of Pomegranates (1891), have often been marginalised in critical accounts as their apparently conservative didacticism appears at odds with the characterisation of Wilde as an amoral aesthete. In this, the first full-length study of Wilde's fairy tales for children, Jarlath Killeen argues that Wilde's stories are neither uniformly conservative nor subversive, but a blend of both. Killeen contends that while they should be read in relation to a literary tradition of fairy tales that emerged in nineteenth century Europe; Irish issues heavily influenced the work. These issues were powerfully shaped by the 'folk Catholicism' Wilde encountered in the west of Ireland. By resituating the fairy tales in a complex nexus of theological, political, social, and national concerns, Killeen restores the tales to their proper place in the Wilde canon.

The Happy Prince and Other Stories (sometimes called The Happy Prince and Other Tales) is a collection of stories for children by Oscar Wilde first published in May 1888. It contains five classic stories. These are:: "The Happy Prince", "The Nightingale and the Rose", "The Selfish Giant", "The Devoted Friend", and "The Remarkable Rocket". Each tale is beautifully told and the book contains 12 full colour plates plus numerous BnW in text illustrations which add to the beauty of the stories. This book has proved so popular that a radio drama adaption was made by Columbia Workshop was broadcast on 26 December 1936. In 1941 Orson Welles and The Mercury Theatre broadcast a version on their "Christmas Show". Another radio version was broadcast in the Philco Radio Hall of Fame on 24 December 1944. 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. The show features numerous references to “The Happy Prince” even featuring a children's story book of the tale. This no doubt not the end for this superb children’s book. 10% of the profit from this book will be donated to charities: =============== KEYWORDS/TAGS: The Happy Prince, Oscar wilde, Folklore, Fairy Tales, fables, childrens stories, childrens book, Nightingale and the Rose, Selfish Giant, Devoted, Friend, Remarkable, Rocket, King of the Mountains, Mountains of the Moon, Palace, Sans-Souci, Loveliest, Queen, Maids of Honour, Rich, Making Merry, Beautiful House, Beggars, Sitting, Gates, princess, Pass by, red rose, Lips, Sweet, Honey, Tree, Little Child, Little Boy, he had Loved, Green, Linnet, Hans, Garden, Russian Princess, sleigh, horses, Fireworks, King, prince, storyteller, storytelling,
