The Canterville Ghost is a novella parody featuring an ambassador and a spirit. The ambassador moves his family into a castle, which is known to be haunted. Oscar Wilde was a major celebrity in the late Victorian era. He was a playwright, novelist, poet, and short story writer. 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.

Characters: 25. Amazon rating: 4 1/2 stars. Genre: Fiction.
