Read full description of the books:
Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854-30 November 1900), better known as Oscar Wilde, was an Irish writer and poet. Known for his biting wit, flamboyant elegance and exceptional aesthetic sense, Wilde rose to fame in the late Victorian era, especially with the idea of 'Art for Art's sake' that he propagated. Oscar Wilde was also a strong proponent of the rapidly growing movement of pacifism, socio-political reform and libertarianism of his time. Encapsulated here are some of his most loved short stories: from the heart-warming 'The Nightingale and the Rose' and 'The Happy Prince' to the humane tales of 'The Selfish Giant' and 'The Fisherman and His Soul'. Wilde continues to be feted today for his lasting contribution to English literature.

Read information about the authorOscar 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.
