The Happy Prince is the tale of a young nobleman, who in life sought only pleasure but in death, as a gold-encrusted statue, provides aid to the needy. Also included are The Nightingale and the Rose, The Selfish Giant, The Devoted Friend, and The Remarkable Rocket. Oscar Wilde was a master of the short story, tackling deep and profound questions in startlingly simple ways. He painted pictures with words designed to stay in the hearts and minds of readers long after they read the last page. For the short story lover, The Happy Prince and Other Tales is a relatively quick--but must read.
