The Canterville Ghost' is a humorous tale of an English ghost, set in Canterville Chase, an ancient English house that has all the requisite signs of appearing haunted. An American family of six the Otis family moves into the house despite being warned that the house is haunted.

None of the members of the Otis family believe in the presence of the ghost. However, they keep finding the increasing evidence of the ghost's presence. Despite that, the Otises refuse to believe that the house is haunted. From clanking chains to strange apparitions to bloodstains that keep reappearing, they take everything in their stride. They go about their life as usual, not frightened in the least. Only Virginia, the daughter of the Otis family, believes that the ghost exists.

The narrator of the story is none other than Sir Simon, the ghost himself. He is characterised by a colorful personality and complex emotions. His regular talks with Virginia about matters of life and death reveal the complexity of his feelings.

'The Canterville Ghost' first appeared in 'The Court and Society Review Magazine' in February 1887. It has been adapted for film, theatre, and music.


Oscar Wilde was an Anglo-Irish playwright, novelist, poet, and critic. He is regarded as one of the greatest playwrights of the Victorian Era.

In his lifetime he wrote nine plays, one novel, and numerous poems, short stories, and essays.

Wilde was a proponent of the Aesthetic movement, which emphasized aesthetic values more than moral or social themes. This doctrine is most clearly summarized in the phrase 'art for art's sake'.
