Review by Trudi on 8th November, 2010
 
4 stars "Everyone Should Have a Copy..."

Wonderful collection of stories and something that everyone should have in their bookshelf (the foreword is very interesting too). The paper and print quality isn't top standard (as obviously reflected in the price – cover art beautiful though), but not bad quality and it means that anyone can afford this literary treasure.

Description

The master of wit and irony

Published here alongside their evocative original illustrations, these fairy tales, as Oscar Wilde himself explained, were written "partly for children, and partly for those who have kept the childlike faculties of wonder and joy."

Annotation
Oscar Wilde, best known for his acerbic, witty plays and urbane nonfiction, was also a master of the fairy tale. This volume brings together all of Wilde's tales from his two collections--"The Happy Prince" and "The House of Pomegranates"--and retains the evocative illustrations done for the original editions.

Biography

The ever-quotable Oscar Wilde once said, "Anybody can make history. Only a great man can write it." From his outsize celebrity in Victorian London to his authorship of fiction, drama, and poetry that uniquely captured his era, it's fair to say that Wilde succeeded on both counts.
