Hemos volcado el fino sentido del humor de Wilde en este sonolibro, en el que el rancio abolengo de la tradición aristocrática británica se enfrenta a su peor enemigo: una familia americana.

El terrible fantasma de Sir Simon de Canterville, que había llevado durante más de quinientos años una vida tranquila, aunque triste, se va a ver de repente enfrentado a la peor de las pesadillas: los Otis.

El terror tradicional provocado por los fantasmas medievales, el pánico generado por esos espíritus ancestrales… cuando se ven a través del prisma de un materialismo exacerbado, ya no dan miedo.

Oscar Wilde hizo en su obra una deliciosa sátira del tradicionalismo británico, personificado en el castillo de Canterville y todos sus habitantes; sátira que, posiblemente tuviera mucho que ver con su vida tan poco convencional, en la que siempre procuró romper con los valores y esquemas sociales propios de la época que le tocó vivir.Este relato de humor es ideal para un viaje corto, o una tarde paseando.

About the Author

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin. He won scholarships to both Trinity College, Dublin, and Magdalen College, Oxford. In 1875, he began publishing poetry in literary magazines, and in 1878, he won the coveted Newdigate Prize for English poetry. He had a reputation as a flamboyant wit and man-about-town. After his marriage to Constance Lloyd in 1884, he tried to establish himself as a writer, but with little initial success. However, his three volumes of short fiction, The Happy Prince, Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime, and A House of Pomegranates, together with his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, gradually won him a reputation as a modern writer with an original talent. That reputation was confirmed and enhanced by the phenomenal success of his society comedies: Lady Windermere’s Fan, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest, all performed on London’s West End stage between 1892 and 1895. In 1895, he was convicted of engaging in homosexual acts, which were then illegal, and sentenced to two years imprisonment with hard labor. He soon declared bankruptcy, and his property was auctioned off. In 1896, he lost legal custody of his children. When his mother died that same year, his wife Constance visited him at the jail to bring him the news. It was the last time they saw each other. In the years after his release, his health deteriorated. In November 1900, he died in Paris at the age of forty-six.
