9781519278654: Lord Arthur Savile's crime and other stories

EXCEPTIONAL UNABRIDGED COLLECTION

Read one of the greatest masterpieces of all time in a beautiful edition.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish author, playwright and poet, who built an esthete and hedonist dandy character.
Inseparable from his huge literary talent, his extraordinary personality, biting wit, flamboyant dress and glittering conversation ensured his fame.

This book is a collection of five short stories first published in 1891.

Lord Arthur Savile's crime tells the story of Lord Arthur Savile, who is introduced by Lady Windermere to a chiromantist who reads his palm and tells him that it is his destiny to be a murderer. Lord Arthur wants to marry, but decides he has no right to do so until he has committed the murder...

The Canterville ghost tale has been widely adapted for the screen and stage - an American family buys a haunted castle in England from Lord Canterville, where creaking chains and blood stains have been terrorizing the area for centuries... But what can do a poor ghost against the common sense of a businessman, the powerful stain remover of his wife and the malice of their children, always ready to make him pranks? All this would drive any self-respecting ghost crazy!

The other three short stories - The sphinx without a secret, The model millionaire, The portrait of Mr W.H. - are extraordinary stories which also mix mystery and humor and make a witty dissection of Victorian society.

These outstanding stories are must-read of classic literature and will delight readers of all ages.

Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)
Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish writer and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Today he is remembered for his epigrams and plays, and the circumstances of his imprisonment which was followed by his early death.
