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,

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.
