“The Fisherman and His Soul” by Oscar Wilde

07.19.12

Story 199/366

This is a long tale, the theme of which is basically, “be careful what you wish for.” The language is poetic, and the conversation between the fisherman and the beautiful little mermaid  he loves is almost biblical, full of “thees” and “thous,” which sound very vintage mixed in with his narration. While not as emotional as “The Canterville Ghost” the story is still extremely emotional. You can read it here.

See you tomorrow!
