Complete Shorter FictionBook - 2008
By all accounts the stories we know today represent only a fraction of those which Oscar Wilde enchanted his listeners. Now for the first time in one volume we have a complete collection of all the short fiction he published, and it clearly shows his versatility and skill as a storyteller, toooften overshadowed by his reputation as dramatist, critical theorist, and novelist.This edition include such well-known fairy-tales as 'The Happy Prince', 'The Young King', and 'The Fisherman and his Soul'; witty social and literary parody in 'Lord Arthur Savile's Crime' and in Wilde's identification of the mysterious dedicatee of Shakespeare's Sonnets; and some of the parables hemost characteristically delivered, which he called 'Poems in Prose'.
