The Canterville Ghost
Author: Oscar Wilde, Inga Moore, Giada Riondino
Publisher: Walker Books
Release Date: October 24, 1997
This is Oscar Wilde's tale of the American family moved into a British mansion, Canterville Chase, much to the annoyance of its tired ghost. The family -- which refuses to believe in him -- is in Wilde's way a commentary on the British nobility of the day -- and on the Americans, too. The tale, like many of Wilde's, is rich with allusion, but ends as sentimental romance...
