The Selfish Giant
Every now and then the Chaplain invites members of the English Department to speak in Chapel about their interests. Earlier this term, Ronan Swift talked about his reading, and sang about this too. This morning, John Fanagan read Oscar Wilde's 'The Selfish Giant' from the copy he received as a present at Christmas 1967, and talked about our love of listening to stories, which is deep inside many of us from childhood. Wilde wrote the piece for his own sons. The full text of the memorable story is here.
