Description:
Known for pointing out the absurdities of life in his fiction and poetry, Carroll took paranormal belief to the extreme in the satirical poem Phantasmagoria, the humorous story of an annoying ghost that is assigned to haunt a new house. While the owner wishes the ghost would simply leave, the ghost politely informs the man of the many types of spectres and their duties, which include scaring people, making them ill, and causing mysterious disturbances.
