The Happy Prince and Other Stories
Each volume in the "Collector's Library" series has a specially commissioned Afterword, brief biography of the author and a further reading list. The afterword for this edition is by David Stuart Davies. The challenge and pleasure of these stories is the simultaneous appeal to both child and adult with their themes of love, truth and sacrifice, which are as relevant today as when they were written. In this collection are to be found some of the brightest gems from the treasure trove of Oscar Wilde's incomparable writing.
