His tales are beyond wonderful Hybrid worlds blending fairy lands with modern times; their marvels go unnoticed or even ignored in secret sacrifices.
In some tales the twist is so funny and you cannot avoid the smile and to be amazed by such smart plots despite the cruelty that blends well the creatures that talk as in fables. In some cases the characters could be persons from these days. I consider these tales are not dated, are quite contemporaneous.
These stories are: The Happy Prince The Selfish Giant The Nightingale and the Rose The Devoted Friend The Remarkable Rocket The stories include a wide variety of characters and settings, but all share a common thread — love, sacrifice, kindness, and the possible dangers of not having them. On the surface, these may appear as simple fairy tales to a child, but Wilde packed each story with heartfelt meaning.
The same selfless love and sacrifice that is received with gladness in The Selfish Giant, is sadly spurned in The Nightingale and the Rose. If only the rocket in The Remarkable Rocket had read a few of these tales, his life might have been a great deal happier. They are an excellent read for any little dreamers or future romantics you may know.
