Hardcover, printed in 2012, 2nd Edition.

The Nightingale and the Rose First published in 1888 as part of The Happy Prince and Other Stories, Oscar Wilde’s The Nightingale and the Rose is a tale of unrequited love, radical transformation and extraordinary sacrifice. With a cast of enchanting characters, including animals, trees and flowers, The Nightingale presents an elaborate world that delicately blurs the real and the imagined. Del Kathryn Barton drew on Wilde’s symbolic universe to create an abundant, bold and vivid imaginative world, blending realism and fantasy with her inimitable aesthetic style.  (Ref. ACMI).
