Renowned for his poetry, plays, essays and witty conversational skills, Oscar Wilde also wrote extraordinarily entertaining works of short fiction. Featuring the comic "The Canterville Ghost", a ghost must figure out new ways to frighten the practical and unflappable new American owners of his mansion, resulting in a delightfully zany conclusion. "The Sphinx Without a Secret", "The Model Millionaire" and "Lord Arthur Saviles Crime" are included as well of some of his "poems in prose". 69 pages, softcover.
Four of the Irish writer's finest works, among them "The Sphinx Without a Secret," "The Model Millionaire," "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime," and the title story, a delightful tale of a 300-year-old ghost who fails to intimidate the newest occupants of his manor house. Also includes the author's 6 "Poems in Prose."
