A curious strategy common to most studies of Oscar Wilde is the omission of his fairy tales .

Wilde published two collections of tales: The Happy Prince and Other Tales in 1888 and A House of Pomegranates in 1891. Wilde himself said little of the two books, but a passing remark of his about one of the tales could be applied to all of them and to Dorian Gray as well: The Happy Prince, he wrote in a letter, is an attempt to treat a tragic modern problem in a form that aims at delicacy and imaginative treatment; it is a reaction.

  • I LOVE these fairy tales. The underlying messages are truly profound. The stories themselves are not violent but there is suffering and death. These are the types of stories that stick with you forever and shape your character.

  • The tales were interesting but as the book wore on it started to get a little too preachy for my taste.

  • Gave it as a gift. My daughter loves Oscar Wilde.

  • Some of the best children's stories ever written. We'd all be better off if the lessons they taught were put into practice.

  • Oscar Wilde is not known for his fairy tales, but for his life, his plays and his short stories. Yes his fairy tales are my favorite for I think that they reveal his heart. He writes not for children but for the child in our hearts. I read his tales and weep and laugh. These are special stories to read or have read to you. He truly knows human nature at its best...and worst.

  • Oscar, one of the best! Great stories, both children and adults can enjoy. Shows a strong form of storytelling that is lost presently. I must for the Oscar Wilde collection

  • Great book, great writing! Highly recommend!

  • Better known for his wit, Oscar Wilde demonstrated his heart with these tales. As with all the best fairy tales, they satisfy on multiple levels, as morality tales suitable for children and as more complex explorations of human nature. I loved these stories as a child and still do as an adult.
