    The original Wilde Thing does it againSeriouslyhow does one not love on Oscar Wilde when he s throwing down the snarkyin this case, and in proper British fashion, against cocky, adolescent cultured Americans and their starched lip, tradition trapped English cousins A bounty of clever from start to finish, Wilde s tale is charming, engaging and pitch perfect For a story less than 30 pages long, Wilde accomplishes so much, using scalpel like precision in both his language and his plotting to tell a story with a little bit of everything The funny is considerable, the sadness and softer emotions are amply represented, and the brilliance is ubiquitous throughout My sole complaint is that I wish it were a bit longer, as I would have loved for Wilde to give himself time with these people and this setting PLOT SUMMARY Briefly, since this is a short story A family of flag flaunting United Staters acquire an historic English mansion from the thoroughly prim, thoroughly British Lord Canterville Throw in a murderous, aesthetically minded ghost with a penchant for high drama and theater, and you have a classic, joy inducing tale of clashing cultures, progress vs tradition, and Wilde s self mockery of his own philosophy of decadent aestheticism And.as an...

    This is Oscar Wilde s first published story, in 1887, a year before The Happy Prince, and five years after he d travelled in the USA It features his oft misquoted line We have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language. It s a curiosity funny, but mostly not in a Wildean way ghostly, but not remotely scary overdoing some stereotypes Americans , and underdoing others what ghosts can feel and do not quite a children s story, but not really an adult one long for a short story, but too short for a novella But who needs labels Hiram B Otis an American, as if you couldn t guess buys an English haunted house and moves in with his wife and four children They come from a modern country , so have no fear, because they don t believe in ghosts.Idyllic summer They heard a wood pigeon brooding over its own sweet voice, or saw, deep in the rustling fern, the burnished breast of the pheasant Little squirrels peered at them from the beech trees as they went by, and the rabbits scudded away through the brushwood and over the mossy knolls, with their white tails in the air. But As they entered the avenue of Canterville Chase, however, the sky became suddenly overcast with clouds, a curious stillness seemed to hold the atmosphere, a great flight of rooks passed silently over their heads, and, before they reached the house, some big drops of rain had fallen. PragmatismThere s a bloodstain on the floor which all...

    A Victorian ghost story by Oscar Wilde 4.5 stars Wilde deftly combines an occasionally grisly haunting, old fashioned sentiment, a small droplet of romance, and a large helping of dry wit in this 1887 novella about a rather brash American family that buys a haunted mansion in Victorian England This story makes fun of some British and American stereotypes of the day, but is oddly touching at the same time.Mr Otis, the American Minister whatever that means, or meant , moves his family into a mansion called Canterville Chase, despite earnest warnings from the prior owner, Lord Canterville a man of the most punctilious honour , about the ghost that s been haunting the home for 300 years, since 1584 Mr Otis dismisses the story, stating categorically that there s no such thing as a ghost.The Otis family the parents, an older son christened Washington by his parents in a moment of patriotism, which he never ceased to regret , a gravely sweet 15 year old daughter named Virginia, and two younger twin boys who would give Red Chief a run fo...

    What a lovely ghost story this was This turned out to be the cutest ghost story for me lately.I have read Wilde the novelist, this time his story also made a mark When an American minister bought Canterville Chase A British Mansion , everyone said it was a foolish decision because the place was haunted and there was no doubt in it But the American minister believed and said that there was no such thing, as a ghost, and I guess the laws of nature are not going to be suspended for the British aristocracy Listening to it the owner of the Canterville replied, If you don t mind a ghost in the house, It is all right Only you must remember I warned you A few weeks after, the purchase was concluded and the family of the American minister shifted to the Canterville Chase.Then there begins the holy terror of a ghost There appears a red blood stain in the sitting room which comes again and again, even after wiping it multiple times An old man of terrible aspect, his eyes as red burning coal, long gray hair fell over his shoulder in a matted coil, soiled and ragged garments with anti...

    The Canterville Ghost is a charming tale, one of Oscar Wilde s best It is a ghost story, a comedy and a romance all rolled into one, told with the offbeat, rolling wit that only Wilde can tell.An American family moves into a haunted mansion in England, but it is they who torment the ghost with their irrepressible irreverence, finally driving the phantom to despair The lovely, charming daught...

    Review in English and in SpanishPersonally I loved this short novel by Oscar Wilde When I was little I had the opportunity to see an adaptation in cartoons of this work and I loved it, and thanks to reading this story I was able to relive this story again I like that it is something dark and that the characters are satirical, since this generates a balance within the work I recommended it for its landscapes, characters and plots A En lo personal me encanto esta novela corta de Oscar Wilde Cuando era peque a tuve la oportunidad de ver una adaptaci n en caricaturas de esta obra y la amaba, y gracias a leer este cuento pude revivir esta historia de nuevo Me gusta que sea algo oscura y que los...
