The four stories in this collection provide a perfect showcase for Oscar Wildes wit and keen sense of humor. From the tale of Lord Arthur Savile and his increasingly desperate and elaborate attempts to commit murder after being told by a clairvoyant that he must kill someone before he can marry to the story of the wealthy Otis family who refuses to believe in the indignant ghost haunting their castle in “The Canterville Ghost,” these narratives weave humor and social satire into a complex tapestry of human nature. Also included are “The Sphinx without a Secret” and “A Model Millionaire.”

 Los cuatro cuentos en esta colección proveen un escaparate perfecto para el ingenio y el humor perspicaz de Oscar Wilde. Desde la historia del Lord Arthur Savile y sus intentos cada vez más desesperados y elaborados de cometer un asesinato después de que un quiromántico le dice que matará a alguien antes de casarse hasta el relato de la rica familia Otis que rehúse creer en el indignado fantasma que aparece en su castillo en “El fantasma de Canterville”, estas narrativas entretejen el humor y el sátiro y crean un tapiz complejo de la naturaleza humana. También se incluyen “La esfinge sin secreto” y “El modelo millonario.”
