Τίτλος: The Art of Giving. Four Fairy Tales + CD Audio
Συγγραφέας: Oscar Wilde
Θεματική Κατηγορία: Hoepli Readers<Classics
A mood of charm and loveliness envelops the fairy worlds of The Happy Prince, The Nightingale and the Rose, The Selfish Giant and The Devoted Friend. Moving and funny at once, Oscar Wilde's witty touch pervades these tales, where indifference, selfishness, vanity and arrogance are met by friendship, generosity, devotion and self-sacrifice. However excessive or even out of place it may appear, the gift asserts itself as the apt response to each cry for help; self-sacrifice becomes an act of beauty, redeeming an otherwise tainted world.
The works are accompanied by ample teaching material aimed at improving vocabulary, developing reading skills, reinforcing grammar structures and attaining a greater level of comprehension. Specific dossiers expand upon the aspects regarding the historical and cultural context of the work. The audio-CD contains the recording of the text.
