After Wilde was released from prison he set sail for Dieppe by the night ferry.

The Christlike coronation and references to Jesus should rank this tale higher than the rest of fairy tales. It is this realness of the characters which really captivated me. I am okay with being friendly but not to the extent of sacrificing myself or going hungry just to make my friend happy.

El Famoso Cohete

I do really like Oscar Wilde, so giving this collectiont three stars pains me somewhat. The stories can be too simplistic, and there is a tension between Wilde’s desire to tell a story and his desire to show off. Jul 26, Wastrel rated it really liked it Shelves: But now, I’m completely for red roses; this story added new associations of love to red roses. This short collection has about 5 tales in it and each of them were delightful and with a moral to boot.

Wilde is a fantastic prose stylist, if you can tolerate his style, and this is one wilds his most accessible works, as well fanoso a surprising one in many ways for those with certain preconceived notions of the author: Precious few writers can do this, let alone in simple fairy tales. It’s still a lovely image to me now, and I like the last line: It is one of my greatest pleasures. The fourth story was my favorite.

I almost really liked this except that there is no redeeming value in the end. The town people look up at him and marvel at his beauty. The Prince does something by mercy for others; the Rocket wants to do something by pride, for self congratulation. My surprise for the day was this small little book, a set of short stories written by Oscar Wilde and believe me I was simply floored by the simplicity as well as the complexity there was in these tales.

These tales certainly do that. Wilde’s subtle yet cynical satire of society is still perfectly relevant today. He subsequently won a scholarship to Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was heavily influenced by John Ruskin and Walter Pater, whose aestheticism was taken to its radical extreme in Wilde’s work. What happens towards the end is a fitting story for the Holy Week as a character reveals His true identity.

Books are well written or badly written. In a town where a lot of poor people suffer and where there are a lot of miseries, a swallow who was left behind after his flock flew off to Egypt for the winter, meets the statue of the late “Happy Prince,” who in reality has never experienced true sorrow, for he lived in a palace where sorrow was not allowed to enter.

The stories may not leave you with a happy feeling, but that is precisely why they make such good reading: The good Little Hans seemed to have died in vain. Email address subscribed successfully.
