Despite its fairy-tale setting, "The Nightingale and the Rose" engages with the real-world debates taking place in the late s. The Enlightenment of the preceding century had inspired great confidence in humanity's ability to solve scientific, practical, and even moral problems with reason. Rapid industrialization and the wealth it generated lent further credence to these ideas by "proving" the success of 18th-century scientific innovation and free-market economics. Nevertheless, there was significant pushback against these trends throughout the 19th-century, particularly from writers and artists. In "The Nightingale and the Rose," Wilde develops his own critique of materialism and intellectualism, as these traits are embodied by the Student and the girl.

The Nightingale and the Rose Introduction:
The nightingale and the Rose story analysis
From her nest in the holm-oak tree the Nightingale heard him, and she looked out through the leaves, and wondered. I have read all that the wise men have written, and all the secrets of philosophy are mine, yet for want of a red rose is my life made wretched. His hair is dark as the hyacinth-blossom, and his lips are red as the rose of his desire; but passion has made his lace like pale ivory, and sorrow has set her seal upon his brow. If I bring her a red rose she will dance with me till dawn. If I bring her a red rose, I shall hold her in my arms, and she will lean her head upon my shoulder, and her hand will be clasped in mine. But there is no red rose in my garden, so I shall sit lonely, and she will pass me by. She will have no heed of me, and my heart will break.
