Описание: Renowned for his poetry, plays, essays, and conversational skills, Oscar Wilde also wrote delightfully entertaining works of short fiction. This volume contains four of his finest. Most celebrated is The Canterville Ghost, a delightfully comical tale centering around the ghost of Sir Simon de Canterville, who for some 300 years has terrorized the residents and employees of Canterville Chase. When the house is bought by the Otises, an American family that refuses to believe in such "supernatural" nonsense, hilarious results ensue. Also included here are "The Sphinx Without a Secret," about an enigmatic woman who carries the key to a mystery with her to the grave; "The Model Millionaire," the charming story of aelightful, ineffectual young man with a perfect profile and no profession"; as well as "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime." Rounding out the volume are Wilde's lyrical "Poems in Prose," including "The Artist," "The Doer of Good," "The Disciple," and 3 more. These diverting stories offer the wit, whimsy, and imaginative gusto of one of the 19th century's most scintillating masters of the English language.

In his brief but productive lifetime, Stephen Crane (1871-1900) wrote vividly and sensitively about a variety of subjects. In his work he displayed a rare ability to combine astute characterization, colorful settings, and an ironic tone in memorable tales offering perceptive explorations of human psychology and motivation. He is perhaps famous as author of The Red Badge of Courage, the quintessential Civil War classic. However, Crane wrote seven other stories involving this monumental conflict. All are gathered together in this volume. They include "A Mystery of Heroism," "A Gray Sleeve," "Three Miraculous Soldiers," "The Little Regiment," "An Indiana Campaign," "An Episode of War," and "The Veteran," which features Henry Fleming, protagonist of The Red Badge of Courage, years after the war. Attractive and sturdily bound, this modestly priced edition will find an enthusiastic audience among admirers of Crane's work, students of American literature, and Civil War buffs alike. All will enjoy the work of an author now recognized as one of the most innovative, influential writers of his generation -- an acknowledged master of the short story.
