A House of Pomegranates
A publication of 1891, A House of Pomegranates is a collection of fairy tales written by Oscar Wilde. It is a magical and mystical presentation that presents grand characters such as princes, princesses, dwarfs, mermaids, and a star-child. The work presents the most beautiful and the most revealing ideas about inner and outer beauty; it preaches that kindness and humbleness are true splendours of the soul. This fictional creation reveals an admiration for the sensual splendour and male beauty.
