Three adjectives to describe "The Young Prince" by Oscar Wilde are:

1. Repentant (because he now sees how the town lived in the times when he was alive and loaded with everything while his subjects were starving and suffering.

2.Sacrified- Since he allowed for each gold leaf to go somewhere that it can be put to better use rather than in his  post humous statue.

3. Self-Realized- He understands much more than what happened when he was alive in his kingdom. He now understands his own self realization on the importance of giving, and of loving the fellow man for the simple reason that we are all humans.
