A House of Pomegranates is a collection of stories written by Oscar Wilde and originally published in 1891.

It consists of four stories:

  • The Young King: About a shepherd who discovers he is destined to be king.
  • The Birthday of the Infanta: A dwarf falls in love with a princess in a story that contrasts innocence and cruelty.
