Oscar Wilde told and retold his fairy tales to friends in private readings, refining them further each time before finally publishing them in two collections between 1888 and 1891, to great acclaim and lasting popularity ever since.

Much of their charm is due to Wilde's intention that the stories be studies in prose... meant partly for children, and partly for those who have kept the childlike faculties of wonder and joy, and who find in simplicity a subtle strangeness.

Often whimsical and sometimes sad, they all shine with poetry and magic. Download and start listening now!

    " Jadi inget dulu pas SD, pernah baca Pangeran Bahagia di majalah anak-anak. Waktu itu ceritanya gak sepanjang yang di buku ini, en gw inget kalau gw baca cerita itu berulang-ulang secara gw suka banget. Cerpen yang paling gw suka di buku ini Pangeran Bahagia dan Raksasa yang Egois. "

    " I never knew that beneath Oscar Wilde's glib persona was a hopeless and wounded romantic. Half of these stories are utterly heart breaking, but they're also beautifully written and remark upon a few of the more unfortunate aspects of society that are still pertinent issues today. Brace yourself for terrible things happening to good people who are then rewarded in the afterlife after they die tragically, but other than that enjoy a "good read". "

    " I love Oscar Wilde, and this book was fun, but I wanted to shake Little Hans until he passed out. His story made me hate stories with morals, too. I think that was the point. "
