The Canterville Ghost and Other Stories
By

Rating
Renowned for his poetry, plays, essays, and conversational skills, Oscar Wilde also wrote delightfully entertaining works of short fiction. This volume contains four of his finest. Most celebrated is The Canterville Ghost, a delightfully comical tale centering around the ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville, who for some 300 years has terrorized the residents and employees of Canterville Chase. When the house is bought by the Otises, an American family that refuses to believe in such "supernatural" nonsense, hilarious results ensue. Also included here are "The Sphinx Without a Secret," about an enigmatic woman who carries the key to a mystery with her to the grave; "The Model Millionaire," the charming story of a "delightful, ineffectual young man with a perfect profile and no profession"; as well as "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime." Rounding out the volume are Wilde's lyrical "Poems in Prose," including "The Artist," "The Doer of Good," "The Disciple," and 3 more. These diverting stories offer the wit, whimsy, and imaginative gusto of one of the 19th century's most scintillating masters of the English language.
