Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Known for his barbed wit, Oscar Wilde was one of the most successful late-Victorian playwrights and a great celebrity. The Importance of Being Earnest and The Picture of Dorian Gray are among his best known works. He is perhaps most famous for his trial, in which he eloquently defended homosexual love and was sentenced to two years of hard labor. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin in 1854. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin and Magdalen College, Oxford where, a disciple of Pater, he founded an aesthetic cult. In 1884 he married Constance Lloyd, and his two sons were born in 1885 and 1886.
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.

This book comprises four tales and is a companion to The Happy Prince and Other Tales.

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.

This is an unabridged reprint of one of the most sought after books illustrated by Jessie M. King. The original edition was first published by Methuen and Coy, Ltd., London, 1914, which now is very difficult to find and would cost more than $500 if in good condition. The original tipped in color plates by King are faithfully reproduced in this edition. (This review is for A House of Pomegranates (Calla Editions), published in 2011)

Bough this Calla edition of "A House of Pomegranates"... twice -- first time, upon opening the book the binding that holds the pages became unglued from the spine -- completely -- returned and tried another and the same thing -- very disappointed...but I figure that after two exact same defects, must be a production/batch issue.

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.

This was a fun collection of short stories. I would classify them as adult fairy tales. I read somewhere that Oscar Wilde once said that this collection was "intended neither for the British child nor the British public," which I think is really funny. My favorite of the four stories was The Young King.

The years have not dimmed Oscar Wilde's talent. I read several of these
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.
