About the Author

Henry James (1843-1916) was an iconic figure of nineteenth century literature. Among his many masterpieces are The Portrait of a Lady, The Bostonians, The Europeans, The Golden Bowl, and Washington Square. As well as fiction, James produced several works of travel literature and biography, and was one of the great letter writers of any age. A contemporary and friend of Robert Louis Stevenson, Edith Wharton, and Joseph Conrad, James continues to exert a major influence on generations of novelists and writers.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent analysis of Henry James' novella The Turn of the Screw. Some excellent literature and documents from Maria Edgeworth on the role of the governess in society and how this can reflect on the governess in the Turn of the Screw. Great for college undergraduates studying modernism and English literature in general.

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.

Perfect for A level (or other exam) use. Contains relevant context points, as well as helpful essays and other information. Recommended by many exam boards and specifically by my teacher, and did not disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this for my Senior Seminar class before graduating with my B.A. in English and best book Ive had to read for school! 24 Jun. 2016
By Amanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just graduated with a B.A. degree in English and this book was on my syllabus for my Senior Seminar class, where our semester theme was novellas (longer than short stories, shorter than novels) I had heard of it, but never read it before. Typically, when a book is placed on a syllabus, it becomes a task to read rather than an enjoyment (just a student thing lol). But, not this one! I didn't want to stop reading it! The class discussions on this book/novella were amazing since the author kept thing ambiguous for a reason. So this would be perfect for a book club. While this book could be considered a novel because it is a little longer than your typical novella, it's still a quick read. And by the end, you'll be wishing it was longer!
3.0 out of 5 stars Its a good story. 21 May 2017

I bought it for a college class, it was OK. James' sentence structure is rough to get through. I ended up reading plot summaries online because they were easier to understand. The 3 stars is for the average story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great edition for "The Turn of the Screw" 9 Jan. 2014
By Chris Stuart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This anthology was put together in a way that gives the reader a great perspective of what motivated James to write a ghost story at the end of the 19th Century. The introduction to the story is comprehensive, the story is annotated well (however several annotations were incorrect), and the articles and theory explanations are well done and add depth to the understanding of James's story. If you are looking for a solid understanding of the time period and the motivation behind the story, this anthology is a great choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible value, excellent resource 13 Nov. 2013
By Nora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent little book for anyone who wants a copy of The Turn of the Screw. For that alone it's reasonably priced, but it also has several very interesting essay regarding this literary classic. It's very insightful and it was perfect to use for my graduate level Literary Theory class and my research paper. For the price, I highly recommend it if you just want a nice copy of the book, need a scholarly source, or just want some interesting insights into James' ghost story.
