THOSE who like the weird will be fascinated by "The Turn of the Screw," one of the two stories published in Henry James' book, "The Two Magics."
The reader's hair will rise at the beginning of this remarkable tale, and it will not settle down comfortably even when the end is reached. Henry James' style becomes as interesting as a Chinese puzzle. It reminds one of George Meredith — with a difference. With the riveting of the reader's attention on every sentence on the one side, while the sensationalism of the story holds absorbingly on the other, Henry James has reached a combination which is unique among story-tellers.
The second story, "Covering End," is a faint reminder of "Daisy Miller"; but the James' characters, in both ways and speech, have grown more intricate since his Daisy Miller's times.
