Later, it was published in a collection of short stories titled Lord Arthur Saviles Crime and Other Stories (1891). Set in late the 19th century, it tells about an American familys encounter with the ghost of an English nobleman. The setting is an old English country house, Canterville Chase. It has all the trappings of a traditional haunted house, but the family that comes to live there belongs to a practical, modern way of life. This sets the stage for the novella. A contrast is shown between traditional English society, which has its roots in a nearly two thousand-year-old history and modern, practical American society, which belongs a nation discovered only in the 17th century. The seller of Canterville Chase, Lord Canterville, and the buyer, Mr Otis, represent these two cultures, respectively. The ghost of Sir Simon, a family ancestor, tries his best to scare the Otis family with the most gruesome appearances. However, the realistic American family refuses to get scared, and Sir Simon ends up only with comic failures. The Canterville Ghost is the kind of story one would write if one wanted to make fun of hair-raising ghost stories. Yet, there are moments of pure sentiment that do not seem misplaced in the narrative. Wildes mastery over sentiment and comedy alike makes this book a perennial favourite. Not surprisingly, the novella has been widely adapted for the screen, theatre, and graphic medium.
