Read full description of the books The Happy Prince and Other Tales (Annotated):This ebook includes a biographical introduction, a short critical analysis of Oscar Wilde and a brief introduction to this work.
Published in 1888, The Happy Prince and Other Tales is a collection of short fairy stories for children by Oscar Wilde. In addition to the eponymous tale, it includes The Nightingale and the Rose, The Selfish Giant, The Devoted Friend and The Remarkable Rocket. Wilde had grown up in a household full with Irish folklore and was known to be able to fill an evening with remembered tales. It sits beside his other book of stories A House of Pomegranates, but is differentiated by the change of tone and culture.
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.
