9780008110642: The Happy Prince and Other Stories (Collins Classics)

HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘Dear Prince, I must leave you, but I will never forget you, and next spring I will bring you back two beautiful jewels in place of those you have given away. The ruby shall be redder than a red rose, and the sapphire shall be as blue as the great sea.’

In ‘The Happy Prince’ a statue – bejewelled and opulent – keeps careful watch over the city and its inhabitants. Enlisting the help of a swallow, his selfless acts bring comfort to those most in need. ‘The Nightingale and the Rose’ is a tragic tale of personal sacrifice in the name of love, while in ‘The Selfish Giant’ the end of an eternal winter finally brings springtime and happiness. In these dazzling and thought-provoking tales – which also include ‘The Devoted Friend’ and ‘The Remarkable Rocket’ – Oscar Wilde invites us to contemplate life’s joy and sadness.

With this selection of five enchanting tales from a master storyteller, Oscar Wilde has entranced readers both young and old since publication in 1888.

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born on the 16th October 1854 and died on the 30th November 1900. He was an Irish playwright, poet and author of numerous short stories and one novel. Known for his biting wit, 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’.
