The collection includes a useful and up-to-date bibliography and extensive and helpful explanatory notes, and an Appendix reprints an important passage from the book-length version of "The Portrait of Mr. W. H. " on the Neo-Platonic ideal of friendship between men, an important key to the short story' s meaning. Oscar Wilde was already famous as a brilliant wit and raconteur when he first began to publish his short stories in the late 1880s. Admired by George Orwell and W. B. Yeats, the stories include poignant fairy-tales such as "The Happy Prince" and "The Selfish Giant" the extravagant comedy of "Lord Arthur Savile' s Crime" and "The Canterville Ghost" and the daring narrative experiments of "The Portrait of Mr. W. H. " Wilde' s fictional investigation into the identity of the dedicatee of Shakespeare' s sonnets. John Sloan' s Introduction argues for Wilde' s originality and literary achievement as a short-story writer, emphasizing his literary skill and sophistication, and arguing for the centrality of Wilde' s shorter fiction in his literary career.
