Summary: The article analyses the formation, confrontation of Oscar Wilde`s aesthetic views and mirroring them in
his works. The analysis of biographical stages of life, critical literature and literary works of O. Wilde proved
that the real confrontation of moral views took place but didn’t find its theoretic and practical justification.
Three major aspects of Wildean literary work serve as handles for this research examination. They are the
Wildean interpretation of theory, Wilde`s literary technique and philosophical assertion of masks and poses.
Additionally, this study takes into account the overall critical history and personal biography of Wilde. Finally,
the article asserts that Wilde`s constructed his aesthetic views, which were multiessenced and, therefore, in
direct conflict with the traditional Western notion of Aestheticism. The aim of the research is to reveal and prove
the confrontation of moral views in the society of the certain epoch and artist’s morals taking into account the
certain epoch’s stereotypes and believes. The work focuses attention on the following issues: the contradiction
between Wilde’s Aesthetic views: society and moral themes in fairy tales in general and in “The Young King” in
particular; the problem of the relationship between the character and the society in the fairy tale “The Young
King”; Narcissism in the nature of the Star Child. The research adopts historico-biographical approach to
analyse the moral themes in Wilde’s fairy tales. The main problems of O. Wilde’s fairy tales are: the problem of
self-sacrifice; the problem of the relationship between the characters and the society. The essence of the problem
is that the outer and inner worlds are not always identical, but fate puts everything in its place. O. Wilde`s
tales represent both the most organic embodiment of the aesthetic ideas of the writer, and the most categorical
objections to them.
