"No, no--there are depths, depths! The more I go over it, the more I see in it, and the more I see in it, the more I fear. I don't know what I don't see--what I don't fear!"
In this classic gothic horror ghost story, we follow a young governess and her deep psychological anguish. It begins when she agrees to care for two orphans living in a remote estate, and her sudden conviction that the grounds are haunted.
Henry James used the horror genre to imbue the everyday with the uncanny and the unknown. A true measure of his success can be found in the debates still raging today: on topics of the characters' sanity, the concept of truth in fiction, and the extent to which James manipulates the reader.
Written with such exquisite ambiguity, this book will call into question everything you know - but, in The Turn of the Screw, not knowing the truth might be a blessing.
