Author(s): Oscar Wilde
This is a collection of stories, including two of Wilde's most famous: "The Canterville Ghost", in which a young American girl helps to free the tormented spirit that haunts an old English castle and "The Happy Prince", who was not as happy as he seemed. Often whimsical and sometimes sad, they all shine with poetry and magic.
Wit, intellectual, aesthete and raconteur, Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin in 1854. His writing - including children's stories, poetry, philosophical essays, a novel and several hugely popular plays - made him the greatest celebrity of his day, and he remains one of the world's most frequently-quoted and well-loved writers.
