One day, the giant hears a bird singing: a sign of spring's return. When he arrived he saw the children playing in the garden. Ortaokul ve lisede ingilizce derslerinde okuduğum bu masalları yeğenlerim için almıştım. Spring does not want to visit, nor do blossoming flowers, for the Giant is too mean and self-centered. I remember listening to my mother read it as we sat on our front porch on a lazy California afternoon.
The Giant is not a gracious host and throws the children out of his garden and builds a wall around it and carefully makes it 'No Trespassing'. It can be read simply as an enchanting story. He's very unhappy, kicks the children out, and decides to build a wall and place a 'No Trespassing' sign. That afternoon the children found the giant lying dead and covered with flowers in the garden. It sounded so sweet to his ears that he thought it must be the King's musicians passing by.
The giant knocked the wall and the giant garden was the children playground. Frost, snow and hail had all disappeared, however when the children saw the giant coming they ran away frightened. I thought it was fantastic. He opens up the garden for all the children to play, but the little boy never returns. The little boy is jesus christ as the boy has two prints of nail on his palm as well as his feet. The next day the other children found the giant dead on the ground covered with flowers.
In order to answer this question, I will examine the text through a Christian perspective and, employing the Christian argument, determine if the giant truly acts in a selfless manner and if such a manner is truly Christian. He banishes them from his garden but the season in the garden does not change as time passes. The giant's heart is moved, he realizes his selfishness, helps the boy, and vows to tear down the wall he's built. He rushes to the window to find the children have snuck into his garden, bringing spring, blossoms, and happiness along with them. Not only does the Giant bring happiness to the children but he also ensures that he will get into Heaven by his act of kindness with the little boy. There to his amazement he sees the little boy.
Oldy Sumil The Selfish Giant From this story entitled The selfish giant written by Oscar Wilde, I learned about The Selfish Giant is about the love of a selfish to a little boy who taught him to share his garden with others and in change, the Giant received the Paradise. The story is about a Selfish Giant who owns a home with a beautiful garden. Moreover, the boy has come to take the giant to Paradise, or heaven. The plot centres around a giant who puts a wall around his beautiful garden to stop children playing in it, and in doing so, stops Spring from entering as well as them. It is one of the many many beautiful stories penned by the author. This seems to indicate that the Christ child is only interested in the fallen and those needing to be redeemed.

He sees the cause- some children have snuck through a hole in his wall structure and are playing in his garden. Every day the children come to play and the proper order of the seasons returns, but the giant never sees he child he lifted into the tree. This is a parallel to the Christian story of Jesus blessing the children. The little child kissed the giant. There was a little boy in that corner who could not climb the trees. The boy offers to take the giant to his garden in Paradise, and the other children later find him, dead beneath a tree.
However, what none of the scholars really consider exploring is the method upon which the giant ceases to be selfish, and thereby becomes worthy of redemption. Once a beautiful flower put its head out from the grass, but when it saw the notice-board it was so sorry for the children that it slipped back into the ground again, and went off to sleep. Even when the season of Winter came, the giant welcomed it. He helps the boy up the tree and opens up the garden for everyone to play. He was punished for his actions because he was invested in the physical.
The setting of the story takes place in the giants beautiful, peaceful garden outside of his huge castle. The plot centres around a giant who puts a wall around his beautiful garden to stop children playing in it, and in doing so, stops Spring from entering as well as them. The poor children had now nowhere to play. The story is about a Selfish Giant who owns a home with a beautiful garden. Then one winter, when the giant is old and feeble, he sees a tree in bloom in the farthest corner. The story is narrated by an unnamed narrator.
He does not realise that the boy is actually the and is furious that somebody has wounded him. So he built a high wall around it and he put a notice-board. Wilde, with the use of his narrator and not the character, allowed redemption to come from an external source when the person in question cannot articulate his own culpability. However, when winter came Hans found himself in a very difficult situation as his flowers wouldn't flourish anymore until the following spring. There are few books outside the canon of scripture that I would count as spiritually powerful and fully illustrative of the love of God as this short story.
