Overview


First published in 1907, The Ghost was the first of the many “fantasias on modern times” written by Arnold Bennett. These books illustrated his ability to produce not only realistic novels, perfected in his portrayals of provincial English life set in the Staffordshire scenery of his childhood, but also more sensational stories, written after his move to London, where he developed a far more cosmopolitan interest. A supernatural story, The Ghost tells the tale of a beautiful opera star, Rosetta Rosa, whose beauty seems to cast a spell upon all those who meet her. When Carl Foster, a young doctor, sees Rosa at a London opera, and is instantly captivated, he soon finds himself plagued by mysterious happenings, and begins to see a malignant, spectral figure everywhere he turns. When another man enraptured by Rosa mysteriously dies, Carl begins to wonder whether loving her could bring with it a deadly curse.

Meet the Author


Enoch Arnold Bennett, the son of a solicitor, was born in Hanley, which is in the Potteries district of Staffordshire.  He was initially employed by his father, a solicitor, and at age twenty-one moved to London, initially to again work as a solicitor’s clerk. However, he soon turned to writing popular serial fiction and editing a women’s magazine. After publication of many articles and stories in serial form, his first novel A Man From the North was published in 1898. This novel was received with critical acclaim and Bennett became a full-time professional writer and moved to Paris where he became a man of cosmopolitan and discerning tastes. During the First World War, Arnold Bennett became director of propaganda for France at the Ministry of Information at the behest of Lord Beaverbrook, whose experiences during the First World War were to later inspire Bennett to write the novel Lord Raingo. At the end of the war, he was offered a knighthood, but refused it.
