In The Canterville Ghost, Virginia is the 15 year old daughter of the family that moves into the manor house. While all of her family sets about to try and cure the ghost or run the ghost off, or torture him, she tries to understand him. It is her compassion for his plight that allows her to learn the meaning of true love. Virginia, then, is the protagonist and is the author's main way of showing the theme of the story, which is that love lives on and is forever.
