The Canterville Ghost


The story is about a family who moves to a castle haunted by the ghost of a dead nobleman, who killed his wife and was starved to death by his wife’s brothers. The home of the Canterville Ghost was the ancient Canterville Chase, which has all the accoutrements of a traditional haunted house.

“He made me see what Life is, and what Death signifies, and why Love is stronger than both.”

Oscar Wilde, The Canterville Ghost
