The Timid Young Countess

Character Analysis

The countess is the other most likely candidate for the ghost haunting the red room, and the younger wife of the old earl. She apparently died in the red room as the result of some misguided joke her husband tried to play on her. According to legend, that’s what started the whole haunting mess. Is she the woman the man with the shade refers to at the end of the story?
