The Canterville Ghost is a short story by Oscar Wilde originally published in 1887 in a magazine in two installments and later published as a book in a collection of short stories.
The Otis are an American family who acquire the ancient castle of the Cantervilles. From their first visit to the castle with the current and elderly owner, they are warned that a specter has lived in it for a long time: the ghost of Lord Simon Canterville.
The family is not scared and they buy the castle with a ghost included, and end up subjugating the poor anachronistic specter, who ends up being a toy and victim of the two terrible children of the family.
It has been adapted for stage and screen several times. The Canterville Ghost is perhaps Oscar Wilde's best-known and most celebrated story.
