THE CANTERVILLE GHOST (CLASS XI)
There has been a ghost in the house for three hundred years and Lord canterville’s family have had enough of it.
“The Canterville Ghost”, written by the well known English author Oscar Wilde, is a humorous story about a ghost trying to get the attention of an American family living in his castle. This story consists of seven chapters for CBSE Class 11 English.
Mr. Otis buys Canterville Castle despite everyone warning him about how it was a foolish idea and that it was haunted. A few weeks later, on a lovely July evening, Mr. Otis and his family, shift to their new home. When they enter the avenue of Canterville Castle, spookiness fills the air around them. Suddenly, Mrs Otis sees a red stain on the floor just by the fireplace and asks Mrs Umney, the housekeeper to clean it. The old woman smiles and answers, ‘It is the blood of Lady Eleanore de Canterville, who was murdered on that spot by her husband, Sir Simon de Canterville, in 1575. Sir Simon disappeared seven years later. His body has never been found, but his ghost still haunts the Castle. The bloodstain is a tourist attraction now and it cannot be removed.’ Listening to this, Washington, the eldest son of the Otis family, wipes it off with the help of a stain remover. But as soon as the blood-stain disappears, a terrible flash of lightning lits up the room and the whole building shakes.
