THE DE-LUXE ISSUE OF THE CHARMING COLLECTION OF STORIES WHICH ESTABLISHED OSCAR WILDE AS AN AUTHOR. "They are studies in prose, put for Romance's sake into a fanciful form : meant partly for children, and partly for those who have kept the childlike faculties of wonder and joy, and who find in simplicity a subtle strangeness." (Oscar Wilde, Letter to George Herbert Kersley, June 15, 1888)

The stories in The Happy Prince owe their origin to Irish oral narrative. Wilde read the tale to his sons, weeping for 'The Selfish Giant' when the child befriended by the giant becomes the crucified Christ who takes his protector to paradise.
