The Turn of the Screw

Henry James, David Bromwich (Introducer)

'The apparition had reached the landing half-way up and was therefore on the spot nearest the window where, at the sight of me, it stopped short'

The Turn of the Screw tells the story of a young governess sent to a country house to take charge of two orphans. Unsettled by a sense of intense evil in the house, she soon becomes obsessed with the idea that something malevolent is stalking the children in her care.

Includes a new introduction by David Bromwich examining the novel's dark ambiguity.
