The Canterville Ghost: (Fantasy and Horror Classics)Författare: Oscar Wilde E-bok
Originally published in two parts in “The Court and Society Review” (March, 1887), "The Canterville Ghost" is a comical short story written by Oscar Wilde. His first published story, it revolves around an American family who move into an English Castle. However, before long they realise that they share their new home with the ghost of a murderous English aristocrat. An incredible humorous play brimming with Wilde's trademark wit not to be missed by fans of his seminal work. Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854–1900) was an Irish poet and playwright who became one of the most popular in London during the 1880s and 1890s. Well-known for his sharp wit and extravagant attire, Wilde was a proponent of aestheticism and wrote in a variety of forms including poetry, fiction, and drama. He was famously imprisoned for homosexual acts from 1895 to 1897 and died at the age of 46, just three years after his release. Other notable works by this author include: “Picture of Dorian Gray” (1890), “Salome” (1891), and “The Importance of Being Earnest” (1895). Fantasy and Horror Classics is proudly republishing this classic play now in a new edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
