The Devoted Friend | [Oscar Wilde]

The Devoted Friend

Although he intended his audience to be children, Oscar Wilde's story, The Devoted Friend, has appealed to people of all ages. Listen as a green linnet tells the charming tale of Hans, an honest, good-humored fellow with a funny, round face and his friend Hugh, the rich Miller. How the Miller exploits little Hans and takes advantage of his kindness brings a very clear message to every one of the pitfalls of trust and devotion.

Audible Editor Reviews

The Devoted Friend is a satirical fairy tale by the legendary Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde. Narrated with childlike mirth in eloquent British tongue by David Ian Davies, this is the fanciful story of a disagreement between a duck and a rat that leads to a linnet’s recounting of a moral story about a supposedly devoted friend, who ultimately was anything but.

This wonderful tale, told with a critical perspective on the true meaning of friendship, should appeal to both children and grownups alike.
