This review is from: The Turn of the Screw: Complete, Authoritative Text with Biographical, Historical, and Cultural Contexts, Critical History, and Essays from C (Case Studies in Contemporary Criticism) (Paperback)
Henry James may be out of fashion these days but let's not forget what made him a giant of his time. A Turn of the Screw is James at his best. Each page is dripping with the rich language he was a master at writing. His buttery prose tells a story which, although short, has spawned thousands of pages of analysis. Up front just a ghost story but underneath a tale of class discrimination, Victorian social secrecy and mental break down.
This is a story you will read again and again and the extra material in the book will shed even more light (or ask new questions!) about it. Henry James knew how to get inside our heads.
So, make sure you are alone on a dark evening, turn down the lights and enjoy.
