Notes & Reviews:
Perhaps the most brilliantly successful ghost story ever written, The Turn of the Screw creates a terrifyingly believable impression of children so corrupted by evil that they remain deceptive pictures of innocent beauty. Their governess must struggle alone to confront and exorcise the demons which she believes possess their souls... Published in 1898, the story was immediately met with glowing reviews. It remains one of Henry James's most popular works.
