The nightingale and the rose moral value

She would not sacrifice herself for others. Yale was it, at first, as the mist that hangs over the river - pale as the feet of the morning, and silver as the wings of the dawn. This act of selfishness shows her as a materialistic and shallow person who values wealth more than true love. She asks the three rose trees in the Student's garden if they can provide her with one. Throughout the story there is a sense that it is only the Nightingale who has understood the true meaning of love. The boy is confused by her words but she ignores his insensitivity. The red rose is a symbol of true love. It is clear to the reader that the Nightingale knows what love is however the same cannot be said for the other animals in the garden. In fact, she is like most artists; she is all style, without any sincerity. Is there no way by which I can get it?

the nightingale and the rose review

When the Student wakes up, he takes it as a lucky coincidence that the tree has suddenly produced a single red rose.

However, remembering the love of the Student, she says, "Love is better than Life, and what is the heart of a bird compared to the heart of a man? As we know that Nightingale has an unshakeable believe in love because of which she sacrifices her life but at the end of the story nobody appreciates her sacrifice and it is wasted when the student throws the red rose in the gutter where it is destroyed.

When the Nightingale sees the student crying for his sweetheart, her whole hearted believe in love compels her to help the boy.
