Home Oscar Wilde The Happy Prince and Other Tales. The happy prince and ot. .The Happy Prince and Other Tales, . It was completely my fault, for I’d asked them which story was their favourite. Every person I gave the book to claimed a different story as the best – and they were willing to fight for it – which is testimony to the strength of these fairy tales. Maybe it’s true that only precious things are really worth fighting for, and when one small book has so many great moments, there’s plenty to argue about.

High above the city, on a tall column, stood the statue of the Happy Prince. He was gilded all over with thin leaves of fine gold, for eyes he had two bright sapphires, and a large red ruby glowed on his sword-hilt. He was very much admired indeed.

The Happy Prince never dreams of crying for anything. It is a ridiculous attachment, twittered the other Swallows; she has no money, and far too many relations ; and indeed the river was quite full of Reeds. I am glad there is some one in the world who is quite happy, muttered a disappointed man as he gazed at the wonderful statue. He looks just like an angel, said the Charity Children as they came out of the cathedral in their bright scarlet cloaks and their clean white pinafores. Then, when the autumn came they all flew away. After they had gone he felt lonely, and began to tire of his lady-love.

There are tales of true friendship, as seen in The Happy Prince, and false friendship, in The Devoted Friend. The same selfless love and sacrifice that is received with gladness in The Selfish Giant, is sadly spurned in The Nightingale and the Rose. If only the rocket in The Remarkable Rocket had read a few of these tales, his life might have been a great deal happier. I had an audio book of The Happy Prince when I was a child, which id what made me look for this book now. Mind you, this story is slightly different than the one I listened to in my youth(the one I had didn't end on a religious note, to be sure), but I still enjoyed it.

His tales are beyond wonderful... they take you to intensities of different emotions. Hybrid worlds blending fairy lands with modern times; their marvels go unnoticed or even ignored in secret sacrifices. In some tales the twist is so funny and you cannot avoid the smile and to be amazed by such smart plots despite the cruelty that blends well the creatures that talk as in fables.
In some cases the characters could be persons from these days. I consider these tales are not dated, are quite contemporaneous.

I have to say, I'm garbage at reading poem books. I was originally interested in this because I had read The Picture of Dorian Gray, and afterwards I had looked up Oscar Wilde. I had found that this verse:

And alien tears will fill for him
Pity's long-broken urn,
For his mourners will be outcast men,
And outcasts always mourn.

is on his grave from the Ballad of Reading Gaol, and that's why I read it. Instead of being only about his imprisonment, I got a lot of fanciful poems that were a little superfluous. I thought the best poem in the book was the actual Ballad of Reading Gaol. It was vivid and accessible, unlike the heavy poems with all the mythology references. (I even like mythology!)

Anyway, took me awhile to get through this, even though it's pretty short.

The Happy Prince and Other Tales is a collection of five children’s short stories for ages 7 and up. These stories are:

The Happy Prince
The Selfish Giant
The Nightingale and the Rose
The Devoted Friend
The Remarkable Rocket

The stories include a wide variety of characters and settings, but all share a common thread – love, sacrifice, kindness, and the possible dangers of not having them.

On the surface, these may appear as simple fairy tales to a child, but Wilde packed each story with heartfelt meaning. There are tales of true friendship, as seen in The Happy Prince, and false friendship, in The Devoted Friend. The same selfless love and sacrifice that is received with gladness in The Selfish Giant, is sadly spurned in The Nightingale and the Rose. If only the rocket in The Remarkable Rocket had read a few of these tales, his life might have been a great deal happier.

Wilde’s eloquent and poetic writing makes the stories a joy to read out loud. They are an excellent read for any little dreamers or future romantics you may know. However, a word of warning: expect to shed a few tears.

Many reviewers have written excellent traditional commentary on the stories themselves, but I'd like to review the Kindle formatting.

1) The illustrations are as delightful as I remember them. They are best viewed in color with a Kindle Fire, iPad, or equivalent, but even in black and white they sing. Be aware, though, that the full-page color inserts of the original are half-pages in this rendition. They are also crisp, which is not always the case in Kindle editions.

2) Original page numbers are embedded in the text. That can be a little distracting, but it's also sometimes quite amusing.

3) The Table of Contents links are live, which is not always the case in Kindle editions from Gutenberg.

4) Go ahead. Spend the 99 cents for this one. It's well worth it for the illustrations alone.

I had an audio book of The Happy Prince when I was a child, which id what made me look for this book now. Mind you, this story is slightly different than the one I listened to in my youth(the one I had didn't end on a religious note, to be sure), but I still enjoyed it. The addition of several other selfless tales of love were a delightful surprise (I suppose I didn't read the description too carefully). These stories are beautiful and bittersweet, descriptions of selfless love given without expectation of reciprocation. Enjoy and share with the young.

These stories are beautifully written (of course!) and enchanting for little ones.

Some are more accessible than others (for example The Remarkable Rocket went a little above my five year old's head, while they could relate very well to The Happy Prince and The Selfish Giant).

The stories do raise some potentially heavy topics for children (for example death, sacrifice, God, poverty...) so I think it's good to be prepared for questions afterwards, as you might end up talking about the stories with your children long after they have finished.

Doriel
Oscar Wilde's story of the HAPPY Prince is a timeless story for both young and old as it defines greatness as one who cares for others more than self - and sacrificing, even unto death for the good of others. Wilde sums up what inspires one to act in the behalf of others, is one who has a loving, caring, and humble heart whether that heart is the prince of the sparrow. It is the 'heart' of the prince that remains when his battered and eye sore statue is torn down and melted,

I've read a lot if his short stories and plays and they have all been fantastic. I highly recommend especially if you're someone who doesn't like or don't typically gravitate towards classics. His stories are for everyone.
