    This is the saddest, most tragic story I ve ever read It starts out as a fairytale and you think it will end well Love is described as the most beautiful thing in the world, by the nightingale outside the student s window Be happy, cried the Nightingale, be happy you shall have your red rose I will build it out of music by moonlight, and stain it with my own heart s blood All that I ask of you in return is that you will be a true lover, for Love is wiser than Philosophy, though she is wise, and mightier than Power, though he is mighty Flame coloured are his wings, and coloured like flame is his body His lips are sweet as honey, and his breath is like frankincense But I should have seen it coming, the darkness This is Oscar Wilde, after all My heart burst and I felt pure pain for the nightingale s sacrifice The picture that got stuck in my mind was the painfully colored rose lying in the gutter.Wilde is portraying people s idea of love as extremely shallow, while the nightingale serves as the only one with a true heart.

    The Nightingale and The Rose is a heartbreaking story about the nature of love and sacrifice At the beginning of the story, we are given the impression that the love between the student and the girl is a true love Later, we are struck with the truth Their love turns out to be a shallow one based on materialistic happiness At the end the student gives up on his love because it was not true in the first place 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 In fact, it is quite unpractical, and, as in this age to be practical is everything, I shall go back to Philosophy and study Metaphysics And we are left to ponder the nightingale s sacrifice was it worth it Or was it all in vain The nightingale believed it was worthwhile For him, it mattered immensely But does it really matter Death is a great price to pay for a red rose, cried the Nightingale, and Life is very dear to all..Yet Love is better than Life, and what is the heart of a bird compared to the heart of a man A great read Highly recommended.

    You got me you little shit.My review stuck in my mind as I read, short and to me at least funny Dudes, if you re trying to get back your wife or looking for a girl, you need to read this.Then Oscar started to get to me I melted I remembered the times before reality, cynicism and societal manliness invaded my romantic, child like heart My eyes burned with the production of moistness.I opened to Oscar He said, Relax Trust me Look deep inside Remember Don t be afraid of the ideologies of love you once knew I m trying to tell you something I loosened My eyes fixed in a trance I smiled, opened my heart, my body, my face.Oscar leaned forward with a gentleness in his eyes, a softness, and PUNCHED ME IN THE FACE I said, What the hell man He made me mad Shocked me Why would someone do this Why mock such a loving sacrifice I looked up meanings and understand Lust, selfishness, greed counterfeit true love They crush it underfoot, the true tragedy of humanity.But I m still like, What the hell man

    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 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 any Originally published 1888 2005 1384 154 9648765065 .

    life is very dear to all It is pleasant to sit in the green wood, and to watch the sun in his chariot of gold, and the moon in her chariot of pearlYet love is better than life and what is the heart of a bird compared to the heart of a man Oscar WildeThe Nightingale and The Rose by Oscar Wilde is a satirical and heart breaking story about love the all consuming passion of which nightingales sing and the self serving quest of the heart that some humans choose to make of it A nightingale in a holm oak tree heard a young student weeping because he did not have a red rose His love interest said she would dance with him only if he brought her one He wept for opportunities he knew he would never have Ah, on what little things does happiness depend The nightingale who sang of love understood its mystery, and was deeply affected She flew to every rose bush in the garden and asked to sing her sweetest song for a red rose But it would take much than a song to procure a fiery red rose in the heart of winter The nightingale who believed in true love was willing to make the supreme sacrifice Love, after all, is a lavish emotion If only the young man and the girl of his dreams understood love the way the nightingale did What a travesty In this instance, the heart of a man cannot hold a candle to the heart of a bird And my heart ached for the nightingale.

    A magnificent illustration of The Nightingale and the Rose by Del Kathryn Barton and Brendan Fletcher.OSCAR Fingal O Flahertie Wills Wilde October 16, 1854 November 30, 1900 was an Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and short story writer He was known for his barbed wit and was one of the most successful playwrights of late Victorian London.A poster for the stage production of The Nightingale and the Rose at the Bristol Museum in February 2014 Wilde s The Nightingale and the Rose is a short story full of irony It tells about a student who falls in love with a young woman However, the latter demands that he gift her with a red rose if he truly loves her The youth goes about looking for a red rose in the garden but in vain Filled with moroseness, he starts crying A nightingale perched on the branch of a tree is watching all this She utters, Surely Love is a wonderful thing It is precious than emeralds, and dearer than fine opals Pearls and pomegranates cannot buy it, nor is it set forth in the marketplace It may not be purchased of the merchants, nor can it be weighed out in the balance for gold She decides to get a red rose for the student so that he can attain his love She goes to a rose tree and asks it for a red rose If you want a red rose, said the Tree, you must build it out of music by moonlight, and stain it with your own heart s blood You must sing to me with your breast against a thorn All night long you must sing to me, and the thorn must pierce your heart, and your life blood must flow into my veins, and become mine Death is a great price to pay for a red rose, cried the Nightingale, and Life is very dear to all It is pleasant to sit in the green wood, and to watch the Sun in his chariot of gold, and the Moon in her chariot of pearl Sweet is the scent of the hawthorn, and sweet are the bluebells that hide in the valley, and the heather that blows on the hill Yet Love is better than Life, and what is the heart of a bird compared to the heart of a man The Nightingale and the Rose on an iPhon The Nightingale has the strongest character in the story The Nightingale is willing to give up her life just so that the student can get a rose for his Lady Love She proves that she has a heart of gold and is willing to sacrifice herself to help a human being She proves herself to be humane than a human can ever be.A beautiful book cover of Wilde s moving short story The young woman has the most negative character in the story She is greedy and selfish and seems only hungry for worldly desires First she wants a red rose and when she gets it, she does not seem to care for it any and wants jewels instead In fact, another youth has already promised it to her The student s character too is not flawless When the Nightingale tells him, Be happy you shall have your red rose I will build it out of music by moonlight, and stain it with my own heart s blood All that I ask of you in return is that you will be a true lover, for Love is wiser than philosophy, he seems to be immune to her feelings He studies Philosophy, yet he can t understand these simple words from a bird who is going to sacrifice her life so that his desire gets fulfilled Even the Oak tree is sensible as she understands and feels sorry for the bird as it knows what is going to happen to her in the end The Nightingale s future is certainly not rosy It can only see the world through rose tinted glasses My Love resides in my heart and within my eye Wilde also seems to be mocking Victorian society which seems to measure love with materialism True love can never be measured and is worth in weight than all the diamonds, pearls, gold and silver on earth put together.The picture speaks for itself.

    Here is a free online link to the story story made me think This is what I want a story to do It has a message I agree with, and the message is delivered with a subtle touch of humor rather than in a didactic fashion The prose is pretty, but a bit too pretty for my taste It reads as a fairy tale and is thus a bit simplistic I do like the story, but I cannot give it than three stars.This is what I think the story says view spoiler All too often people are blind to what is there right before our eyes We fail to see the marvelous in the ordinary Many have lost the ability to think We do not think ourselves, but take the easier route of asking others to tell us what to think hide spoiler

    Rondine, Rondine, piccola Rondine disse il Principe non vuoi restarecon me ancora una notte Piccoli racconti che sembrano perle, luccicanti sotto l acqua di mare Nella sua spregiudicatezza ho trovato un Oscar lieve, delicato, sensibile, quasi tenero Di base si potrebbe dire che il filo conduttore di questi racconti sia la disillusione di fronte alla verit , il capire che l A non basta a salvare tutto e tutti e che ogni punto di vista porta in s un briciolo di quella verit che assoluta non L A non basta a salvare la piccola rondine dal freddo, non basta a salvare il principe dalla rovina, non basta a salvare l usignolo, n lo studente L usignolo muore per un a che viene calpestato e il suo sacrificio non riconosciuto, cos come succede nel il razzo eccezionale Solo nella morte l usignolo trova l unicit di quella verit perch il suo A diventa Eterno L ultimo componimento il ritratto di Mr W.H un dotto esercizio sui Sonetti di Shakespeare, che Wilde dimostra di conoscere perfettamente, tanto da costruirci sopra un piccolo castello di carte Cadr al primo soffio Un Wilde sorprendente, di grande effetto.
