First published in 1888, the collection features a series of enchanting fairy tales that blend fantasy with moral lessons, showcasing Wilde's mastery of storytelling and his keen insight into human nature.

At the heart of the collection is the titular story, "The Happy Prince," which tells the tale of a gilded statue of a prince who, upon witnessing the suffering of his city's poor, enlists the help of a selfless swallow to alleviate their plight. Through their compassionate acts, both the prince and the swallow discover the true meaning of sacrifice and selflessness, imparting profound lessons about empathy and generosity.

Other stories in the collection, such as "The Selfish Giant" and "The Nightingale and the Rose," similarly explore themes of love, sacrifice, and the consequences of selfishness.
