For Love of the King

By Wilde, Oscar

Excerpt
I am greatly repentant being so long in acknowledging receipt of Told on the Pagoda. I enjoyed reading the stories, and much admired their quaint and delicate charm. Burmah calls to me. Under another cover I am sending you a fairy play entitled For Love of the King, just for your own amusement. It is the outcome of long and luminous talks with your distinguished husband in the Temple and on the river, in the days when I was meditating writing a novel as beautiful and as intricate as a Persian praying-rug. I hope that I have caught the atmosphere.
