In Jerome K. Jerome’s Told After Suppereach character tells a ghost story, creating a series of stories in the story. There is the story of the ghost Johnson, maddened with pain for the loss of his beloved, who cannot find peace. The second story is that of the ruined house, where a mischievous ghost leads the owner to destroy telling him of a legendary treasure hidden in it. There is also the story of the ghost of the blue room which has particular relevance as it is set in the house which held the main facts of the book and then leads to the final story of the protagonist. The terrible and merciless ghost of the blue room is right there in that house and the main character decides to stay in that room. There he meets the ghost, and they become friends. The theme of the ghosts is faced with a certain irony and all its clichés.
