Oscar Wilde Short Stories

$0.00 USD

This collection of Oscar Wilde's writing includes fairy tales, short stories and poetry. Influenced by the Irish fairy tales he heard as a child, Wilde allowed his imagination to run free across a variety of genres - from mystery to fantasy and the supernatural - while ensuring that hisserious social and artistic concerns featured as an undercurrent throughout. From 'The Happy Prince', atender story about friendship, compassion and the transforming power of selfless love, to 'The Remarkable Rocket', a cautionary tale about a deluded, self-important firework, Wilde's aesthetic preoccupations are evident in everyline. Witty, wise, generous spirited and sometimes melancholy, these writings are a testament to Wilde's standing as a literary genius of the Victorian age
