About the Author

The ever-quotable Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet who delighted Victorian England with his legendary wit. He found critical and popular success with his scintillating plays, chiefly The Importance of Being Earnest, while his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, scandalized readers. Imprisoned for two years for homosexual behavior, Wilde moved to France after his release, where he died destitute.

I always liked Oscar Wilde and when I saw this book In Barnes and Noble I immediately bought it for my son. I read it to him not knowing that I had read one of these stories in the past and explained to him after The Happy Prince that, 'This is going to be a great book!' Upon completing it, he said, 'That is a great book!'
