About Wilde Tales
Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin in 1854. In 1884 he married Constance Lloyd, and his two sons were born in 1885 and 1886. His children inspired him to write a collection of fairy tales. They can be found in two separate books- the Happy Prince and the House of Pomegranates. The entire collection includes the following stories: The Happy Prince, The Nightingale and the Rose, The Selfish Giant, The Devoted Friend, The Remarkable Rocket, The Young King, The Birthday of the Infanta, The Fisherman and his Soul, and The Star-child.
They are all exquisite and poignant tales of true beauty, selfless love, generosity, loyalty, brilliant wit, and moral aestheticism. Oscar Wilde explained that they are... “partly for children, and partly for those who have kept the childlike faculties of wonder and joy.”
