In 1871, at New England’s Plumfield School for Boys, Professor Bhaer and his wife Jo lovingly instruct, teach and care for all their boys. One day, a street orphan, Nat Blake, is sent to the school by a benefactor and quickly becomes part of the happy routine at the farmhouse school. The novel is considered to be the second book in an unofficial Little Women trilogy, which is completed with the novel Jo’s Boys and How They Turned Out: A Sequel to “Little Men”. This delightful classic by Louisa May Alcott is not only a must-read for children who are growing up but also for parents raising them.

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was born at 21 Westland Row, Dublin (now home of the Oscar Wilde Centre, Trinity College), the second of three children born to Sir William Wilde and Jane Wilde, two years behind William (\"Willie\"). Wilde\'s mother was of Italian descent,[1] and under the pseudonym \"Speranza\" (the Italian word for \'hope\'), wrote poetry for the revolutionary Young Irelanders in 1848 and was a lifelong Irish nationalist.[2] She read the Young Irelanders\' poetry to Oscar and Willie, inculcating a love of these poets in her sons.[3] Lady Wilde\'s interest in the neo-classical revival showed in the paintings and busts of ancient Greece and Rome in her home.[3] William Wilde was Ireland\'s leading oto-ophthalmologic (ear and eye) surgeon and was knighted in 1864 for his services as medical adviser and assistant commissioner to the censuses of Ireland.[4] He also wrote books about Irish archaeology and peasant folklore. A renowned philanthropist, his dispensary for the care of the city\'s poor at the rear of Trinity College, Dublin, was the forerunner of the Dublin Eye and Ear Hospital, now located at Adelaide Road.[4] On his father\'s side Wilde was descended from a Dutchman, Colonel de Wilde, who went to Ireland with King William of Orange\'s invading army in 1690. On his mother\'s side Wilde\'s ancestors included a bricklayer from County Durham who emigrated to Ireland sometime in the 1770s.[5][6]
