The Fisherman and His Soul by Oscar Wilde

A fisherman hoping to score a few fish in his nets, catches a beautiful mermaid instead. In order to marry her, he must get rid of his soul. By asking how to get rid of his soul, many other questions arise: why does a soul matter if you can't see it or touch or if you do not know it? The fisherman goes on a quest and meets a priest, a witch and even the devil himself... Oscar Wilde takes on quite the adventure in The Fisherman and His Soul.

This is the first in four part series.
