The Turn of the Screw and Other Stories

by

The Turn of the Screw and Other Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Only make the reader's general vision of evil intense enough, I said to myself — and that already is a charming job — and his own experience, his own imagination, his own sympathy (with the children) and horror (of their false friends) will supply him quite sufficiently with all the particulars. Make him think the evil, make him think it for himself, and you are released from weak specifications." So wrote Henry James in his preface to The Turn of the Screw. The classic tale of an impressionable young governess put in charge of two apparently angelic children soon turns into one of the most riveting and controversial ghost stories ever written. It is given here with six other major tales by James, which show him as a supreme master of his art.

Synopsis:
