"The Jolly Corner" is one of Henry James' most noted ghost stories. It was first published in the magazine The English Review of December, 1908. "The Jolly Corner" describes the adventures of Spencer Brydon as he prowls the now-empty New York house where he grew up. He encounters a "sensation more complex than had ever before found itself consistent with sanity." ~ Wikipedia.
