The Canterville Ghost – Das Gespenst von Canterville
Funny Story to Learn German & Expand Your Vocabulary the Easy Way – With the L-R-Method
Lord Simon Canterville has haunted the castle for hundreds of years and soon sets about trying to pull his best scare tactics on the new residents, an American minister, his wife, and their children. To his dismay, however, these modern Americans have no use for the traditions of a proper, British haunting. It’s a funny, not too creepy story which can also be read together with children.
‘The Guardian’ wrote about Oscar Wildes writing: ‘Oscar’s sensibilities are so perfectly fitted to our time: sarcastic, idealistic, playful, gloomy, melodramatic, conflicted. He was a self-created superstar, with a weirdly modern awareness of all that entailed’.
