    " One of my favorite short stories ever! I've first read it when I was just a little girl (I don't remember exactly when, but probably in elementary school) and it made me cry. "

    " Its a sad poem which shows the brittle nature of love, It may seem so strong and ever lasting but it needs one strike to loose it....still u can find the beauty of love in this book..... "

    " "Be happy," cried the Nightingale, "be happy; you shall have your red rose. I will build it out of music by moonlight, and stain it with my own heart's-blood. All that I ask of you in return is that you will be a true lover, for Love is wiser than Philosophy, though she is wise, and mightier than Power, though he is mighty." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brown Bear | 12/29/2013

    " A beautifully told children's story which works on many more levels, questioning the nature of love and the importance of it in a society filled with learning. Brought manly tears to my eyes. It comes in a book of short children's stories by Oscar Wilde called 'The Happy Prince and Other Tales' which is great. "

    " I think "tragic but poetic" is the only way to describe this story. "

    " I rated it 2/5 because this book left me SO sad and I read it when I was about 12 years old (and it still made me sad) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Navin | 11/12/2013

    " A beautiful story. As subtle as they come. They boy after-all is human and it is human to be so and so. "

About the Author
Author Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin in 1854. 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.
