The Happy Prince is the story of a beautiful metal statue, the Happy Prince, and a migratory bird. The bird is flying south for the winter and stops for shelter under the statue. The two become good friends and the bird helps the statue to give his riches to the poor of the city.
It’s a sweet and moving tale of love and kindness. In the story Wilde also makes fun of the Mayor and Councillors of the city, describing their arrogance and stupidity.
The Nightingale and the Rose is a timeless story of love and sacrifice. A young student falls in love with his Professor’s daughter. She asks him for a red rose but he hasn’t got one to give her. A little nightingale, moved by the student’s tears, decides to make a rose for him by sacrificing her own life. The story is also a well-known opera and ballet.
