    Hmmmm....this was a funny and yet strange little read. It was quite short and moved very quickly. A young man,Mr. Legge, the archbishop's nephew, goes to see his uncle and is sent to Wicklow, Ireland to investigate a supposed miracle. A man died from the village and was buried in the Church graveyard against everyone's wishes. He was an awful man who did not even believe in God so no one wanted him buried in sacred ground. The night of his burial the whole graveyard, plants, graves, tombs, every Hmmmm....this was a funny and yet strange little read. It was quite short and moved very quickly. A young man,Mr. Legge, the archbishop's nephew, goes to see his uncle and is sent to Wicklow, Ireland to investigate a supposed miracle. A man died from the village and was buried in the Church graveyard against everyone's wishes. He was an awful man who did not even believe in God so no one wanted him buried in sacred ground. The night of his burial the whole graveyard, plants, graves, tombs, everything and everyone miraculously moves to the other side of the water. The young man Mr. Legge is not the most stable person anyway and falls in love with a girl who is the neice of the local priest. When she does not return his feelings of love and he is found out to be an English spy sent to investigate them, Mr. Legge is thrown out. He decides to move the body of the hated man so he will be buried with the rest of the people out of spite, but just as he finishes burying him, he looks and the graveyard has once again moved back to it's original location, leaving the hated grave alone again. Mr. Legge hurries home and waits as the investigatory group decides that the local priest was lying and made up the story about the miracle and he is banished.

    Short story from GBS that was not very famous during his time but now considered as one of his best. I didn't particularly enjoy the narrative even though the humour is top-notch. A short loo-break read. Short story from GBS that was not very famous during his time but now considered as one of his best.
