Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Nightingale and the Rose - Oscar Wilde - A nightingale overhears a student complaining that his professor's daughter will not dance with him, as he is unable to give her a red rose. The nightingale visits all the rose-trees in the garden, and one of the white roses tell her that there's a way to produce a red rose, but only if the nightingale is prepared to sing the sweetest song for the rose all night, and sacrifice her life to do so. Seeing the student in tears, the nightingale carries out the ritual, and impales herself on the rose-tree's thorn so that her heart's blood can stain the rose. The student takes the rose to the professor's daughter, but she again rejects him because another man has sent her some real jewels, and "everybody knows that jewels cost far more than flowers." The student angrily throws the rose into the gutter, returns to his study of metaphysics, and decides not to believe in true love anymore.

Book excerpt: ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 364 In this 364th issue of the Baba Indaba’s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates the Fairy Tale "THE NIGHTINGALE AND THE ROSE”. ONCE upon a time, long, long ago and far, far away, a nightingale sat in her nest watching and listening to the people below… A young man was lamenting “She said that she would dance with me if I brought her red roses,” cried the young Student; “but in all my garden there is no red rose.” This got the nightingale wondering…… “Here at last is a true lover,” said the Nightingale. “Night after night have I sung of him, though I knew him not: night after night have I told his story to the stars, and now I see him. His hair is dark as the hyacinth-blossom, and his lips are red as the rose of his desire; but passion has made his face like pale ivory, and sorrow has set her seal upon his brow.” “The Prince gives a ball to-morrow night,” murmured the young Student, “and my love will be of the company. If I bring her a red rose she will dance with me till dawn. If I bring her a red rose, I shall hold her in my arms, and she will lean her head upon my shoulder, and her hand will be clasped in mine. But there is no red rose in my garden, so I shall sit lonely, and she will pass me by. She will have no heed of me, and my heart will break.” “A true lover indeed,” said the Nightingale. “What I sing of, he suffers: what is joy to me, to him is pain. Surely Love is a wonderful thing. It is more precious than emeralds, and dearer than fine opals. Pearls and pomegranates cannot buy it, nor is it set forth in the market-place. It may not be purchased of the merchants, nor can it be weighed out in the balance for gold.” What did the nightingale do next you ask…? Well many things happened, some strange, some silly and some serious. To find the answer to what happened to the young man and if he eventually danced with the woman of his dreams.

Download Free Art and Christhood PDF by Guy Willoughby Full Book and published by Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press. This book was released on 1993 with total page 190 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this stimulating new study, Guy Willoughby suggests that Oscar Wilde's imaginative engagement with the figure of Jesus Christ, shorn of His attachment to ecclesiastical dogma, is a key to the coherence and import of the fin de siecle writer's aesthetics. Through a rigorous but elegant discourse on each of Wilde's major (and minor) works, Willoughby argues that the author's abiding ethical and aesthetic themes coalesce around the figure referred to in De Profundis as "the precursor of the Romantic movement in life." The works discussed in detail include the fairy tales, the Poems in Prose, The Picture of Dorian Gray, the poetic dramas, essays, and Wilde's juvenile and mature verse. In contrast to those critics who have dismissed Oscar Wilde's thematic confusion or contrivance, and his "aesthetic" disdain for "the world of actual existence" (as he called it), Guy Willoughby asserts that Wilde's most urgent, overriding interest was in the relationship of art to life - and that, ultimately, his concern was to merge the two constructs, to fuse the aesthetic impulse into a radical new mode of experience. In developing this radical impulse, which must strike a sympathetic chord in our contemporary, "postmodern" reevaluation of traditional boundaries, Willoughby finds that Wilde concretized his mature, reformulated aestheticism by rereading the mission and career of Christ. In one sense, Wilde's treatment of the numinous founder of Christianity recapitulates the search of nineteenth-century scholarship for the "historical Jesus," and Willoughby traces affinities in Wilde's work with the secular Christologies of Ernest Renan and Matthew Arnold. But in a strikingly contemporary sense Wilde looks forward to Paul Tillich or Dietrich Bonhoeffer, for his Christ is an insistent iconoclast and systembreaker, his vision an impetus for a perpetual recasting of ethical or ideological distinctions. It is thus that the artist is Christ's most notable imitator, for in the Wildean schema art is a necessarily dangerous and disruptive force. Willoughby gives a full account of the extraordinary range of Wilde's generic and stylistic departures, and demonstrates that the complexity and surprise of these structural choices accords with the author's aesthetic project. In particular, Willoughby details Wilde's shrewd mining of strains in Western myth and symbolism, and the rich tension between Hellenic and Hebraic postures that is a vital dialogic force in his essays, plays and tales. Drawing on elements from myth and genre criticism, as well as literary theory, Guy Willoughby establishes Oscar Wilde as a seminal writer standing Janus-like between the Victorian and Modernist sensibilities, and a writer whose essays into aesthetic theory and practice are perhaps best appreciated today. This book marks an important juncture in our understanding of both Oscar Wilde and the radical aestheticism he initiated in British cultural debates.

Download Free The importance of being a reader: A revision of Oscar Wilde's works PDF by Christina Pascual Aransáez Full Book and published by Anchor Academic Publishing (aap_verlag). This book was released on 2014-11 with total page 380 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book explores Wilde's works from the hypothesis that they call upon the active participation of the reader in the production of meaning. It has a twofold objective: first, it shows that Wilde's emphasis on the creative role of the audience in his critical writings makes him conceive the reader as a co-creator in the construction of meaning. Second, it analyses the strategies which Wilde employs to impel the reader to collaborate in the creation of meaning of his literary works and casts light upon the social criticism derived from these. The examination of Wilde’s writings reveals how he gradually combined more sophisticated techniques that encouraged the reader's dynamic role with the progressive exploitation of self-advertising strategies for professional purposes. These allowed the ‘commercial’ Oscar to make his works successful among the Victorian public without betraying the ‘literary’ Wilde’s aesthetic principles. The present study re-evaluates Wilde as a critic and as a writer. It demonstrates that, while Wilde the ‘myth’ was ahead of his time in many ways, Wilde the ‘ARTIST’ anticipated in his aesthetic theory various themes which occupy contemporary literary theoreticians. Thus, it may contribute to give him the status he rightly deserves in the history of literature.
