    " Well, I wouldn't read them to a little kid because some of them have such depressing endings. But Wilde can write. "

    " I am not very familiar with this genre, especially in a more modern sense than Grimm, so I was not exactly sure what to expect. I picked up the book largely because I wanted to read more Oscar Wilde. My actual rating varies greatly based on the story. Some were drawn out and a bit boring, others were overwrought, but some were also hilarious or poignant. The book as a whole is worth the read, as is the section explaining exactly why Oscar Wilde wrote them. We really should have more modern fairy tales! "

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 1887–91, 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.
