The reinvention of fairy tales was a very particular feature of Victorian literature. Many authors dedicated to other genres tried their luck by making their own versions of the fairytale universe. The critic August Nemo selected seven of these Victorian fairy tales for your appreciation: - The King of the Golden River by John Ruskin. - The Rose and the Ring by William Makepeace Thackeray. - The Golden Key by George MacDonald. - The Little Lame Prince by Dinah Craik - The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde. - Melisande by Edith Nesbit. - The Reluctant Dragon by Kenneth Grahame.
