More About the Author
His novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891), and social comedies Lady Windermere's Fan (1892), A Woman of No Importance (1893), An Ideal Husband (1895), and The Importance of Being Earnest (1895), established his reputation. In 1895, following his libel action against the Marquess of Queesberry, Wilde was sentenced to two years' imprisonment for homosexual conduct, as a result of which he wrote The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898), and his confessional letter De Profundis (1905). On his release from prison in 1897 he lived in obscurity in Europe, and died in Paris in 1900.

The stories in this book are:
* The Young King: A young shepherd is taken to the palace to be crowned king. He dreams of the sorrows befallen those who have provided his coronation finery.
* The Birthday of the Infanta: A hunchback dwarf is given to the Spanish princess for her 12th birthday.
* The Fisherman and his Soul: A young fisherman must lose his soul in order to be with the mermaid he loves.
* The Star-child: A baby is found in the woods and is brought up by a woodcutter. He grows up to be handsome but cruel.
As with the stories in The Happy Prince, these tales *can* be read to children but are intended for adults, with an underlying morality to each tale.
5 stars for paper material, illustrations, etc -- as those are all top notch...the issue is the binding/construction which gets a 1 star --
I've checked other Calla editions and this issue seems limited to this title & also "A Midsummer Night's Dream" -- beware of this issue if ordering these two books.
poems aloud and they are flawless. It truly is amazing. And Ballad of Reading
Gaol, I hadn't read it in quite a while but it is still so powerful. As he said in
his trial, he wrote always for beauty and he delivered. He is probably an
equal to Shakeseare. Please read.

The book was everything it showed in the presentation here on Amazon. It's a reprint of an old book by Oscar Wilde, and the illustrations are really beautiful.Published on November 11, 2013 by KWarner
