It was the first of Wilde's stories to be published, appearing serially in the magazine The Court and Society Review in 1887. It was later included in a collection of short stories entitled Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories in 1891.

Setting: An old English country house.

Plot: The Otis family moves into the Chase, a Tudor mansion. Mrs. Otis is disturbed by a blood stain in the dining room, and orders that it be removed at once. But the maid explains that the blood stain dates back to 1575, the day Lady Eleanore de Canterville was murdered by her husband, Sir Simon de Canhterville - The Ghost - who is haunting the castle.
