Oscar Wilde paints with words
well written fables
the swallow was my favorite character
inflection by this narrator give a good idea of how Oscar Wilde wanted his stories to sound
I liked this book of short stories because it gave pause to think about the beauty that creates a place in the imagination and to consider the moral of the story. Oscar Wilde brilliantly wrote with a political or religious thought but painted it as beautiful little story. I am now a fan of Oscar Wilde's books.
