Turn of the Screw (James)

The Turn of the Screw
Henry James, 1898
100+ pp. (Varies by publisher.)

One of literature's most gripping ghost stories depicts Miles and Flora, two children who see ghostly apparitions. Their young governess, believes the specters morally dominate the two.

James's story follows the sinister transformation of the children—are they become flagrant liars, or innocents enthralled to evil spirits?

The Turn of the Screw is an elegantly told tale of unspoken horror and psychological terror creates what few stories in literature have been able to do—a complete feeling of dread and uncertainty. (Adapted from various publisher summaries.)
