Abstract:

Although first published in 1891, this ghost story remains a classic of Wildean wit and Victorian sentimentality. True, some of the references to melodrama and nineteenth-century Anglo-American attitudes may elude modern readers, but the basic story of a hardheaded American family that buys a haunted British manor house and proceeds to drive the resident ghost nearly crazy with its skepticism is still a delight, as are Wilde's epigrams: 'We have really everything in common with America nowadays, except, of course, language.'
