Oscar Wilde was born in 1854, dead in 1900 Ireland_UK. This point of time was marked by the major change that many  authors referred to end their stories with a happy ending. The presence of happy ending is one of the key points that distinguishes melodrama from tragedy. In certain periods, the endings of traditional tragedies such as Macbeth, Oedipus Rex or William Shakespeare …in which most of the major characters end up dead, disfigured, discountenanced have been actively disliked.

Today, dispite happy endings not recieve a high assessment from critics, but most the way stories, films, dramatics has ended, proving that happy ending is still not being backward. Moreover, happy ending is not only for satisfying audiences in usual way, but it also brings the messages of peace, condemnation, or even deposing one regime. Back to Happy Prince writings, this kind of ending stype is more likely as a humanistic meaning than as a practical meaning. The way that Oscar Wilde solved his story’s problems seem to be more useful in satisfying the readers than dealing with the real circumstances.

So after reading it, some interrogative sentences will be asked: What’s next? would there be another prince to help the poor?… Oscar Wilde’s love for the poor was the unilateral and secrete one. It’s just for the famine relief, not for the means at the end. This is not only the essential point in his view, but also the general essential point of most authors in his epoch. World’s literature had to wait since the Russians October revolution in1917 to have the new respectives with the outcome of the story.

Representers: Mikhail Sholokhov is well known with Quite Flow The Don, War and Peace of Lefstotov, Agnes Hemingway with a Farewell to Arms. Although Oscar Wilde was not a politician or a person with power can effect the regime or even he can not see the first world war but his love and his vision for the poor are very appreciative and useful for us to learn. Anyhow with the love of an Irish author to the poor and with the best tenets about love, he has eased the sufferring from the labours and encourages generous actions to make the earth as a beautiful paradise where there is no sadness exists
