Cover of book The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde

For a long time a ghost has been living in the Canterville castle. He has killed many generations who lived there. Eventually the house has been sold to others. Soon after a new family has arrived to live at the castle and sat down to dinner, they saw a red stain on the floor. Later they learned that a blood stain belongs to a killed wife of the ghost. Father cleaned the spot, but the next day it had appeared again. Every night the ghost was wandering through corridors bothering the family. The next night, when the ghost began to walk again, the father suggested him lubricate the chain by oil. The ghost became very angry and decided to take a revenge.
