Read full description of the books Selfish Giant:Don't you tell me that you have not read this one!
The sign that got trapped in the labyrinth of my 3rd grade mind reading his English Gulmohar was this :
Got burnt into my memory. And that is how I dug this books out of my pensive to add it here on Goodreads - by searching for this sign.
Oscar Wilde knows how to tickle the juvenile readers.
Walls are made to keep dangers out. But if those bricks and mortars start eroding the warmth inside, they should be done away with. The giant constructs a wall, proper with a flashing sign, warning any crossing over onto his garden would be "taken care off".
There's this one line that serves as the evidence for the competence of Oscar Wilde passing off pristine literature to children with deftness.
"Then the Spring came, and all over the country there were little blossoms and little birds. Only in the garden of the Selfish Giant it was still winter."
Verdict : Paragon of childhood memories.
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.
