The Nightingale chronicles how an emperor deems the song of a living bird inferior to that of a mechanical imitation. Predictably, the expensive, gilded toy breaks, leaving the emperor heartbroken and deathly ill. The real nightingale, upon hearing of the emperor’s impending death, returns to sing him back to health. The bird makes clear that it is unable to nest in the emperor’s palace, but will come in the evening and sing and bring news of how the commoners within the kingdom are faring.
