The Nightingale and the Rose

Hot 5987 views. 2017-11-26 19:45

      The bookThe Nightingale and the Rosewas written by one of my favorite British writers---Oscar Wilde, and he is one of the most eminent writers in nineteenth century. He was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1854 and died in Paris, France in 1900.

      I like the story of the nightingale and the rose, as much as the story of the happy prince, which was known to me when I was very young. The book which I introduce today contains various stories that reveal the writer’s feelings. For example, the story of the nightingale and the rose talks about a kind-hearted nightingale who sought for a red rose to help a poor student dance with a girl who he fell in love with, eventually sacrificed her life. All that nightingale wanted was a red rose which would never be found in the cold winter, so she built out of music by moonlight, and stained the rose tree with her own heart’s blood. She sang to the tree with her breast against a thorn, and got a red rose much more beautiful than any others. But the red rose was not preserved well, it was thrown onto the street by the poor student after being refused by the girl who was mad about money.

     Oscar Wilde always quotes that ‘We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the star.’ Money is important, but love is priceless. Because love is unique and precious, and kindness cannot be neglected like dust.

For me, although love is priceless and nice, I have no desire to try it, hahahaha. The most important thing to me now is getting rid of poverty. hahahaha

The story is beautiful but full of sorrow. What's more, I also loved another work this writer wrote, the little prince. That's also very beautiful.

I haven't seen the book you recommend, but I love the sentence in the book."We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the star".This is really inspiring.

You are not poor, my dear. You just spend too much money on your clothes, eating and many others. And you must pay more attention to love. Wish you found ‘the one’ earlier.

I love <the happy prince>,too. As I know, it is sorrow that makes the story so beautiful.

Yes, there are much knowledge in books, but I think you can have your own way of learning. It is no need forcing yourself doing what you dislike.
