Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary


This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classic includes a glossary and readers notes to help the modern reader more fully appreciate the rich complexity of James language, images, and symbols.Before there was Alfred Hitchcock, there was Henry James, and before Psycho, there was The Turn of the Screw.Why is the young governess the only one who can see the ghosts?Are her young charges haunted or evil?Or is the governess herself mad?The book that claims to start out as a Christmas Eve ghost story quickly becomes a tale of psychological horror as the governess struggles-and ultimately fails-to protect the children from the corruption that only she can conceive of...but cannot name.Richly wrought in Late-Victorian prose, Henry James most famous novel is both hauntingly beautiful and a shocking glimpse into the ultimate source of evil...the human mind.
