Mr. Otis travels to England with his family and moves into a haunted castle. Lord Canterville, the previous owner of the castle, warns Mr. Otis that the ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville has haunted the castle ever since he killed his wife, Eleonore, centuries ago.

So Lord Canterville sells his grand old house to an American family. Mr. Hiram B. Otis is happy to buy the house and the ghost - because of course Americans don’t believe in ghosts.

    A terrifying ghost is haunting the ancient mansion of Canterville Chase, complete with creaking floorboards, clanking chains and gruesome disguises - but the new occupants seem strangely undisturbed by his presence. Deftly contrasting the conventional gothic ghost story with the pragmatism of the modern world, Wilde creates a gently comic fable of the conflict between old and new. Rupert Degas's hilarious reading brings the absurdity and theatricality of the story to life.

    Oscar Wilde's wit and meaning is at its best in this ghost story, considered by many the best ever written. Wilde's dialogue lends himself to narration because of his quick wit and delivery. Here he presents a traditional English ghost that Americans refuse to accept, but both parties finally work together to end the controversy. One of the great short stories of all time.

    Oscar Wilde was a prolific and spontaneous storyteller who once declared, "I cannot think otherwise than in stories." Here are a handful of his shorter works that demonstrate his range, versatility, and skill as a storyteller, which is too often overshadowed by his reputation as a dramatist, critical theorist, and novelist. Wilde shows his wit in the social parodies "The Canterville Ghost", "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime", "The Sphinx without a Secret", and "The Model Millionare".
