Philippe de Montebello's wonderful narration brings to life five thematically connected fairy tales by Wilde, who is well known for his witty, satirical portrayals of upperclass English society. The narrator's appreciation of Wilde's artistry allows him to work with the author's rich language, vivid characterization and eventful plots to create a delightful literary experience. De Montebello's round, full tones with carefully placed nuance, subtle inflection and occasional understatement are a vehicle for the author's wit and vision in these studies of friendship, love and devotion. These fairy tales will be enjoyed on one level by children and on another by adults and students of literature. R.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 96]
