The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde. Choose Store. It takes place in an old English country house, Canterville Chase, which has all the accoutrements of a traditional haunted house. Virginia Otis is the only ne who takes the ghost seriously; she listens to him and learns an important lesson But Wilde slowly starts to show us that the ghost is far from innocent.
We learn of his previous murders and his complete amorailty and self-centeredness.
Wilde slowly closes the trap and we begin to see the truth behind the ghost's genteel facade. One line, in particular, that struck me was when he casually admitted to killed his wife because she "was very plain, never had my ruffs properly starched, and knew nothing about cookery. The humor is steady throughout and I was pretty much smiling from beginning to end reading Wilde's on target wit.
Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forget life, to be at peace. As you read the description of Canterville Chase, you see a litany of characteristics that paint it as the quintessential gothic mansion.
But is it? Of course not…Wilde simply uses this benckmark so he can quickly and effectively turn it on its head. So…I loved this and I thought how Wilde took what started as a satire on the uncouthness of Americans and the stale traditionalism of the English, and turned it into something uplifting by marrying the best attributes of both was inspired.
I just wish it had been longer and the story had had a little more time to breathe.
