What a silly thing Love is. It is not as useful as Logic, for it does not prove anything, and it is always telling one of things that are not going to happen, and making one believe things that are not true. A young man is in love with a girl who promises to dance with him at a ball if he brings her a red rose. The boy is at a loss because he does not know where to find a red rose. A nightingale overhears and decides to help. But is their love even worth the sacrifice of the nightingale? The Nightingale and the Rose is a heart-breaking fable by Oscar Wilde about the nature of love and sacrifice, and is so very captivating and emotional for such a short story.Fans of Aesop s Fables will love discovering the moral of this story.Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, essayist and poet famous for ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ and ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’. He died in Paris at the age of 46. The Importance of Being Earnest is Oscar Wilde’s most popular and enduring play. Poking fun at the ridiculousness of human nature, especially that of the Victorian elite, it is both incredibly clever and undeniably silly.It has been performed and made into films and for television many times, most recently in the 2002 film starring Colin Firth, Reese Witherspoon and Judi Dench.
