Whether viewed as a subtle, self-conscious exploration of the haunted house of Victorian culture, filled with echoes of sexual and social unease, or simply as "the most hopelessly evil story we have ever read," The Turn of the Screw is probably the most famous of ghostly tales and certainly the most eerily equivocal. This new edition includes three rarely reprinted ghost stories from the 1890s, "Sir Edmund Orme," "Owen Wingrave," and "The Friends of the Friends," as well as relevant extracts from James's notebooks and journals.

Review:

"The Turn of the Screw is the most hopelessly evil story that we have ever read in any literature, ancient or modern."  —Independent

"We are afraid of something unnamed, of something, perhaps, in ourselves . . . Henry James . . . can still make us afraid of the dark."  —Virginia Woolf

"Henry James is as solitary in the history of the novel as Shakespeare is in the history of poetry."  —Graham Greene

"A most wonderful, lurid, poisonous little tale."  —Oscar Wilde

"It really does turn your blood cold."  —Colm Tóibín

"Technically, he is extraordinarily brilliant, and stylistically he’s wonderful."  —David Lodge

"[James] is the most intelligent man of his generation."  —T. S. Eliot
