Об авторе

Oscar Wilde was born in 1854 in Dublin, Ireland. He is best known for his poetry, plays, including The Importance of Being Earnest, and the novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. Wilde also wrote a popular collection of stories for children called The Happy Prince and Other Tales. In the years since their publication, the stories in that collection–including The Selfish Giant–have been dramatized through radio, film, and dance worldwide.

    The fairy tale, The Selfish Giant, was an okay story. I thought the story used the seasons in an interesting way. Spring was described as a fun time where the children would play. The giant was selfish, and when he kept the garden to himself, he paid a price for his selfishness. Because of his act, Spring and Summer would never visit his garden again. I was glad that the story showed the giant apologetic, because big people (adults) make mistakes and should own up to these mistakes. It was a great lesson, and for this it would be considered a tellable tale. The book using the Wilde's original text but formats it as a comic. Because I love the illustrations so much, I think children would enjoy this story being told more with the book. Although I liked the story okay, it is not a favorite of mine. Some storytellers may find this story to be particularly interesting, but it just did not maintain my interest. I found this book at the Wayne County Library, Dewey number 823.8.

    I like graphic adaptations of literature and The Boys got this for me for Xmas. (Hopefully we didn't already have it). Russell's art work is gorgeous and the Art Nouveau/Symbolist aspects of his style are very appropriate. I find Wilde's tales very complex and including some imagery -- such as the Xt. child in the Selfish Giant -- that I just wouldn't expect. The Star Child ruling for only 3 years and being followed by someone very evil, however, was an ending that I thought entirely Wildean.

    I'd never read any Oscar Wilde fairy tales, and I was surprised at the religious message in the first and how strong the morals were presented all around. I found the stories as delightful as pretty much everyone in the universe does. I could hardly believe how easily and well they had been converted to the comic format, though. Glad I checked it out of the library.
