    About "Oscar Wilde"

      • Oscar Wilde

        Oscar Fingal O Flahertie Wills Wilde was an Irish playwright, poet and author of numerous short stories and one novel Known for his biting wit, and a plentitude of aphorisms, he became one of the most successful playwrights of the late Victorian era in London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day Several of his plays continue to be widely performed, especially The Importance of Being Earnest As the result of a widely covered series of trials, Wilde suffered a dramatic downfall and was imprisoned for two years hard labour after being convicted of gross indecency with other men After Wilde was released from prison he set sail for Dieppe by the night ferry He never returned to Ireland or Britain, and died in poverty.


    1. Review in English and SpanishThis story is about the birthday of the Infanta of Spain, a poorly raised and young princess who does not have a mother. For this reason he lives a somewhat lonely life except on the day of his birthday, but this one is so different In this story, it is possible to see that this was one of the author's first writings because he plated many ideas that ultimately end to not be concreted. There were characters and flat plots that should not have developed, it is also fu [...]

    2. A beautiful and moving adaptation of a powerful and poignant story. One of those fairy tales that just might break your heart. Another P. Craig Russell masterpiece in his series adapting the Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde.

    3. It's so sad .n't you think ? the way they saw him , they were the true monsters.I saw he was so kind ,pure creature and it wasn't his fault that they couldn't see how beautiful his heart was e way he imagined how he could take care of the princess against how she saw him makes you realize how unfair the life can be . He died when he found the truth " it was he who was misshapen and hunchbacked, foul to look at and grotesque. He himself was the monster, and it was at him that all the children had [...]

    4. "- Mi bella princesa, vuestro divertido enanillo no volverá a bailar nunca. Es una lástima, porque era tan feo que hubiera hecho sonreír al rey.- Pero ¿por qué no bailará nunca?- preguntó la infanta riendo.- Porque su corazón se ha roto - contestó el chambelán.Y la infanta frunció el ceño y sus bellos labios de rosa se curvaron en una mueca de desdén.- Para el futuro, aquellos que vengan a jugar conmigo, que no tengan corazón - exclamó; y se marchó corriendo al jardín."

    5. Oh wow. This is really heartbreaking. I'm a little bit in shock but I think I'm going to give this a reread and then probably a 5* rating. Firstly, the descriptions of everything was so vivid; for such a short story I really felt sucked within this world. Secondly, I accidentally called my mum as I grabbed my phone to write this review because I couldn't see through the tears.

    6. Not the best of Wilde but indeed a kind of Wilde's thing The writing was fine, the concept was normal, the story was acceptable, the characters were nicely done, but the ending was really touching

    7. Armed with a sharp sword of irony, this story by Wilde will probably slice into even the most insensitive of hearts. The end brought to mind not a similar, but somehow stirring a verisimilitude of emotion , another story "The Postmaster" by Rabindranath Tagore. Though " The Postmaster" does not share the theme or the sudden end of the above story, the irony, the unfairness and the tragic brutality of emotion rend the heart alike. Though I do concede that Wilde was more intellectual and much more [...]

    8. This is the only volume of the series that is entirely occupied with just one tale (the others are two apiece), and frankly I don't think it's justified. A great deal of time is spent on the festivities of the infanta's birthday party, as well as the dwarf's lounging and being mocked by wildlife, but of course this is merely a fault of the original materiald who am I to criticise Wilde? The story otherwise is slightly less cynical than, say, Nightingale or Devoted Friend, but still a VERY harsh [...]

    9. It touched my heart and soul too deep. Beautiful, bittersweet and sadly, real. My only complain is that I want it to be longer.

    10. What a horrible little story. A dwarf is given to a Spanish Infanta around the time of her birthday. While it was very popular in history for royalty to have dwarfs as courtiers, Wilde goes out of his way to show cruelty and no remorse. The dwarf was brought for entertainment. The inhuman little Infanta demands for him to dance for her and his friends while they laugh at his appearance. The dwarf believes they are his friends and like his jokes and dances. It's soon after when he sees his appear [...]

    11. Estou achando curioso o fato de que muito dos contos que li ao longo desse mês, eu já tinha lido antes. O Aniversário da Infanta me é familiar de um volume que li no colégio, que continha também O Fantasma de Canterville.Mais uma história de cortar o coração - uma princesa egoísta, um pobre anão que desconhece sua própria aparência: poderia fazer comparações com A Bela e a Fera aqui, mas, francamente? O grande trunfo desse conto é fazer você ficar profundamente deprimido

    12. A tragic fairy tale for older children, about the lavish birthday celebrations of the Princess Infanta and a hideous misshapen dwarf who is brought to perform for her birthday celebrations. He dreams of being the companion of the beautiful Infanta, but then in the palace he sees how ugly he is in a mirror, and dies of a broken heart.

    13. Like all fairy tales, this horribly sad story is true to life. People can discuss the painful things of life more honestly in a fairy tale type story, and Wilde tells us about something we all recognize--emotional shallowness and bullying. This tale, along with The Happy Prince, show Oscar Wilde's sensitive side.

    14. From the master of Satires comes another tale about human vanity, and its infatuation with physical beauty. It might be a fairytale for kids, but there's so much allegory in the background, so many metaphors, it can make any poetry lover's day

    15. Wow, I really love Russell's art style.And I love Wilde's fairy tales. This isn't my favorite (actually, I'd never heard it before and probably for a good reason)but the art really captured Wilde's intent.

    16. I remember how as a child this was my least favorite story because the cruelty of those spoiled kids was just too much.

    17. Russell turned one of Wilde's short stories into a graphic novel. Nicely done; I think students will check it out. I'll put it on the shelf and see
