Summary
Renowned for his poetry, plays, essays, and conversational skills, Oscar Wilde also wrote scintillating works of short fiction. This volume includes four fine examples, including The Canterville Ghost, the comical tale of a spirit who terrorized the residents of Canterville Chase for three centuries. When the manor is acquired by a no-nonsense American family with no use for the supernatural, hilarity ensues. Three other stories feature "The Sphinx Without a Secret, " a tale of an enigmatic woman who carries a mystery's key to her grave; "The Model Millionaire, " recounting the exploits of a "delightful, ineffectual young man with a perfect profile and no profession"; and "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime, " in which an aristocrat learns that he is destined to commit murder. Rounding out the volume are Wilde's lyrical Poems in Prose : "The Artist, " "The Doer of Good, " "The Disciple, " "The Master, " "The House of Judgment, " and "The Teacher of Wisdom."
