Oscar Wilde: The Canterville Ghost

Language:
English
Genres:
Fiction & Literature, Horror

"The Canterville Ghost" is a popular short story by Oscar Wilde which tells about a traditional haunted house and mixes comedy and macabre.  Oscar Wilde places the American family in a British stately home. He creates stereotypical characters satirizing both the unrefined tastes of Americans and British determination to guard their traditions. The scary atmosphere of a traditional ghost story is defused by Wild's humor.  Besides humor this story also has a very important message: the author shows the significance of life and death, and love which is stronger than both.  "The Canterville Ghost" is a brilliant example of famous Oscar Wilde's sense of humor and author's mastery.
