Oscar Wilde was a prolific and spontaneous storyteller who once declared, "I cannot think otherwise than in stories." Here are a handful of his shorter works that demonstrate his range, versatility, and skill as a storyteller, too often overshadowed by his reputation as a dramatist, critical theorist, and novelist. Wilde shows his wit in the social parodies "The Canterville Ghost," "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime," "The Sphinx without a Secret," and "The Model Millionare." In "The Portrait of Mr. W.H.," he identifies them ysterious dedicatee of Shakespe are's Sonnets.
