Read full description of the books The Happy Prince and Other Stories:In this collection of beautiful and poignant tales, Oscar Wilde employs his characteristic grace and wit and reveals a softer contemplative side to his writing. Written for his two sons, the stories have an enduring appeal for children, combining, as they do, a moral message in a fantastical framework. Along with 'The Happy Prince', the tale of the compassionate statue who cannot bear to witness the suffering of the townspeople he watches over, this volume includes 'The Nightingale and the Rose', 'The Devoted Friend', 'The Remarkable Rocket', and 'The Selfish Giant'. Thanks to the genius of Oscar Wilde, each of these stories is unique and unforgettable. Also available in the series: The Jungle Book ISBN 9781909399822 The Secret Garden ISBN 9781909399808
Read information about the authorOscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was an Irish playwright, poet and author of numerous short stories and one novel. Known for his biting wit, and a plentitude of aphorisms, he became one of the most successful playwrights of the late Victorian era in London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day. Several of his plays continue to be widely performed, especially The Importance of Being Earnest.
As the result of a widely covered series of trials, Wilde suffered a dramatic downfall and was imprisoned for two years hard labour after being convicted of "gross indecency" with other men. After Wilde was released from prison he set sail for Dieppe by the night ferry. He never returned to Ireland or Britain, and died in poverty.
