En este sorprendente cuento Wilde se sirve la realidad de la corte española, de sus personajes y sus costumbres, para describirla de un modo exótico y servirse así de ella como lugar para el relato del infausto acontecimiento que ocurre el día del cumpleaños de la infanta, a quien le agasajan con las gracias de un enano que no tiene noción de su propia deformidad. Tanta gracia le hace a la infanta sus piruetas que le regala una de sus rosas y el enano la cree rendida de amor por él. Buscándola por palacio viene a dar con un espejo, objeto que ve por primera vez en su vida, y al tomar conciencia de sí mismo, se le parte el corazón. La infanta, decepcionada, decreta que a partir de ese momento nadie que tenga corazón vuelva a jugar con ella.

About the Author

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin. He won scholarships to both Trinity College, Dublin, and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was heavily influenced by the radical aesthetics of Walter Pater. Flamboyant wit and man-about-town, Wilde had a reputation that preceded him, especially in his early career. After publishing two volumes of short stories between 1887 and 1891, his social-comedy plays such as Lady Windermere’s Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest established his critical and commercial success. In 1895 Wilde was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for homosexual conduct and died in Paris in obscurity a few years after his release.
