Most of Henry James’s fiction is realistic, but, in The Turn of the Screw, he uses his brilliant powers of observation to write a strange and disturbing ghost story. A young woman goes to work as a governess in a large country house. She must take full responsibility for two children — Miles and Flora — whose parents have died and whose uncle and guardian lives in London. In this lonely situation, the governess starts to see the ghosts of the former governess and a manservant, both of whom died in mysterious circumstances . . .
