“Published in 1888 as part of The Happy Prince and Other Tales, Wilde’s short story describes how a nightingale sacrifices her life so a student may offer a red rose to the girl he loves. When the object of his desire opts for jewels over a flower, the student flings the rose into a gutter and renounces love.”
