'Lord Arthur Savile's Crime' and Other Stories
CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 4. 1. 2015 - 84 strán (strany)
Here are some of Oscar Wilde's finest short stories: 'Lord Arthur Savile's Crime', 'The Canter-ville Ghost', 'The Model Millionaire', 'The Sphinx Without a Secret', and 'The Portrait of Mr W. H.' The range of Wilde's talent and wit is fully evident in this diverse mix of stories. Within the collection there is an unconventional ghost story about a bungling and inept ghost, a twist on the conventional murder mystery formula and a whimsical fantasy on the provenance of Shake-speare's Sonnets.
