Read full description of the books Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde: Vol. 1 - The Selfish Giant/The Star Child:P. Craig Russell never seems to disappoint when delivering a charming tale with a dark twist. These are no exception. While there is an underlying subtext to The Selfish Giant which bothers me, the over all meaning and moral of the story is wonderful. The other tale in this all to brief collection is The Star Child which is probably one of my favorites and Russell does a fantastic job adapting it from Oscar Wilde's story. These two stories are ostensibly for children, but adults can get a lot out of them as well. And the book, at least the edition I have, is perfect for reading to a child sitting on your lap - which is, of course, how all fairy tales should be read.
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.
