Wilde, Oscar - The Canterville Ghost - Language: English, Short Stories - Format: ePub
The Canterville Ghost is a popular 1887 novella by Oscar Wilde, widely adapted for the screen and stage. “The Canterville Ghost” is a parody featuring a dramatic spirit named Sir Simon and the United States minister (ambassador) (More) to the Court of St. James's, Hiram B. Otis. Mr. Otis travels to England with his family and moves into a haunted country house. Lord Canterville, the previous owner of the house, warns Mr. Otis that the ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville has haunted it ever since he killed his wife, Eleonore, three centuries before. But Mr. Otis dismisses the ghost story as bunk and disregards Lord Canterville’s warnings. When the Otises learn that the house is indeed haunted, they succeed in victimizing the ghost and in disregarding age-old British traditions. What emerges is a satire of American materialism, a lampoon of traditional British values, and an amusing twist on the traditional gothic horror tale.
Wilde, Oscar - The Nightingale and the Rose - Language: English, Short Stories - Format: ePub
A nightingale overhears a student complaining that his professor's daughter will not dance with him, as he is unable to give her a red rose. The nightingale visits all the rose-trees in the garden, and one of the white roses tell (More) her that there's a way to produce a red rose, but only if the nightingale is prepared to sing the sweetest song for the rose all night, and sacrifice her life to do so. Seeing the student in tears, the nightingale carries out the ritual, and impales herself on the rose-tree's thorn so that her heart's blood can stain the rose. The student takes the rose to the professor's daughter, but she again rejects him because another man has sent her some real jewels, and "everybody knows that jewels cost far more than flowers." The student angrily throws the rose into the gutter, returns to his study of metaphysics, and decides not to believe in true love anymore.

La novela cuenta la historia de un joven llamado Dorian Gray, retratado por el artista Basilio Hallward, quien queda enormemente impresionado por la belleza física de Dorian y comienza a encapricharse con él, creyendo que esta (More) belleza es la responsable de la nueva forma de su arte. Charlando en el jardín de Basil, Dorian conoce a Lord Henry Wotton, un amigo de Basil, y empieza a cautivarse por la visión del mundo de Lord Henry. Exponiendo un nuevo tipo de hedonismo, Lord Henry indica que “lo único que vale la pena en la vida es la belleza, y la satisfacción de los sentidos”. Al darse cuenta de que un día su belleza se desvanecerá, Dorian desea tener siempre la edad de cuando le pintó en el cuadro Basil. El deseo de Dorian se cumple, mientras él mantiene para siempre la misma apariencia del cuadro, la figura en él retratada envejece por él. Su búsqueda del placer lo lleva a una serie de actos de libertinaje y perversión; pero, el retrato sirve como un recordatorio de los efectos de cada uno de los actos cometidos sobre su alma, con cada pecado siendo expuesto como una desfiguración de su rostro o a través de un signo de envejecimiento.
