I thought I’d never read any of them, but I’d definitely read “The Selfish Giant” before, and some of the others seemed familiar. I’m interested in one question: He subsequently won a scholarship to Magdalen College, Oxford, where he was heavily influenced by John Ruskin and Walter Pater, whose aestheticism was taken to its radical extreme in Wilde’s work.

Oscar Wilde certainly fits that statement. Oscar Wilde writes so beautifully that you can’t really help but let his books absorb you as though they were Tom Riddle’s dairies.

I had no idea that Oscar Wilde wrote such stories.

The Happy Prince and Other Tales by Oscar Wilde

Reminds us, once again, that what goes around, comes around. But a few days ago I noticed a review by fellow GR group member I have found that any author I was forced to read in my ancient school days tends to be ignored these days when I can choose my own reading. From an analytical point of view I could talk until the cows come home about the religious content, the views of the aristocracy, Wilde’s cynicism, the role of women etc etc etc.

Cohefe wanted especially to read the story The Remarkable Rocket. The Birthday of the Infanta: 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.


Bagian cerita bunga mawar i ini bagus bangeeett. So, the young man asks the witch to separate himself from his soul. Short stories with morals, I love that!

The Giant becomes lonely I know, winter could be depressing so he breaks down the wall and let the children play again in his garden. Largely on the strength of his public persona, Wilde undertook a lecture tour to the United States inwhere he saw his play Vera openunsuccessfullyin New York.

The Christlike coronation and references to Jesus should rank this tale higher than the rest of fairy tales.

If you heard or read “The Portrait of Dorian Gray”, you would know how dark a book it is and seeing the movie long before reading the book which is a picnic compared to the book’s darkness, IMO; I was quite impressed by reading these children stories which are on the opposite side of the spectrum, quite bright.

I am okay with being friendly but not to the extent of sacrificing myself or going hungry just to make my friend happy. One night, he dreams of the poor people who work hard to come up with the gems that are to be put on his robe as decors. It is more precious than emeralds, and dearer than fine opals.

Oscar Wilde juara bikin cerita sederhana tapi emosinya teraduk-aduk dan banyak pesan moralnya. There are rockets around us. I almost really liked this except that there is no redeeming value in the end.

Others may find it too sugary or flowery no pun intended to stomach.

But a few days ago I noticed a review by fellow GR group member Rick, discussing a graphic novel edition of two osdar Oscar Wilde’s short stories.

The idea famiso the arch-sophisticate taking on the genre of simple, Wilde is a fantastic prose stylist, if you can tolerate his style, and this is oscqr of his most accessible works, as well as a surprising one in many ways for those with certain preconceived notions of the author: I noticed before in reading some commentaries of classic works were the “modern view” is projected to mean something, that the author did not intend.

It’s not that they aren’t well written, they’re just incredibly sad and frustrating. It saves time, and prevents arguments. An illegitimate shepherd’s son ends up as the only heir of a dead king.


Sad but just like the Devoted Friend story there is no redeeming value. Add to it, Wilde’s popular witticisms. His signature wit surfaced from time to time.
