Description

This faithful graphic novel adaptation is ideal for students and any readers who want to understand the story quickly. Running 130 pages and featuring stunning artwork, the book includes an illustrated character list (like a dramatis personae) and fascinating support material that details the life and work of Oscar Wilde. This brilliant and often overlooked story is a clever commentary on how Wilde saw free America challenging traditional England -- all in the guise of a charming fireside tale. Wilde's clever parody provides an entertaining twist on the traditional gothic horror story. A gauche, materialistic American family moves into the English mansion of Canterville Chase, much to the annoyance of the resident ghost. Wilde creates an unforgettable gallery of characters from Hiram B. Otis and his children to Lord Canterville and the chain-clanking ghost Sir Simon.
