ABSTRACT
This essay addresses the ghost stories of American author Edith Wharton. It is noted that critic Adeline Tintner wrote about Wharton's free use of other supernatural fiction authors' inventions such as those used by F. Marion Crawford's "The Upper Berth" in her story "The Journey." The author provides plot synopses of both short stories and compares the main characters of each story.
