Description:

Paperback. 56 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.1in.The story starts conventionally enough with friends sharing ghost stories round the fire on Christmas Eve. One of the guests tells about a governess at a country house plagued by supernatural visitors. But in the hands of Henry James, the master of nuance, this little tale of terror is an exquisite gem of sexual and psychological ambiguity. Only the young governess can see the ghosts; only she suspects that the previous governess and her lover are controlling the two orphaned children (a girl and a boy) for some evil purpose. The household staff dont know what shes talking about, the children are evasive when questioned, and the master of the house (the childrens uncle) is absent. Why does the young girl claim not to see a perfectly visible woman standing on the far side of the lake Are the children being deceptive, or is the governess being paranoid By leaving the questions unanswered, The Turn of Screw generates spine-tingling anxiety in its mesmerized readers.
