The Canterville Ghost is a short story written by Oscar Wilde and first published in 1887 in “The court and society review”. It is, together with Lord Arthur Savile’s crime, one of Wilde’s most famous short stories. An American family decides to move into an English manor which happens to be haunted by a four-century old ghost. Many events occur, ranging from the dark comical to the outright funny. At the end…a great twist… One of the best displays of Wilde’s extraordinary talent.
