the complete fairy tales of oscar wilde Jan 19, 2008
OH! what a joy to have found these. i am a fan of the fabulous mr. wilde and i wasn't aware that he wrote fairy tales. they are deeply touching and made even more so when you realize that he wrote them for his children.

my favorite work by WIlde Jun 25, 2007
My introduction to WIlde was through his dramatic work. I thought it was dull and dated. SO I assumed he was over rated and ignored his work for years. A few moths ago one of my homies was raving about Pictures of Dorian grey so I gave it a go. I found the first half to be very impressive, the second half wasnt bad either. I was glad to know that Wilde had earned his rep. I wasnt even aware of his fairy tales. wowza! homie can write! this is the strongest work ive read by him. each tale is profound and beautiful. six star classic work.
Sublime and Beautiful Jun 21, 2007
Oscar Wilde has an eloquence that involves and transports the reader to magical lands that he in his mind has envisioned for us; lands where love, goodness, and kindness are the victors. I have often thought that we have left the best of us behind us, and Mr. Wilde is a prime example of this.
If you allow his powerful mastery of words for imagery and emotion to capture your heart and imagination, you will enjoy his literary works quite well.
