9780199536177: The Turn of the Screw and Other Stories (Oxford World's Classics)

Whether viewed as a subtle, self-conscious exploration of the haunted house of Victorian culture, filled with echoes of sexual and social unease, or simply as "the most hopelessly evil story we have ever read," The Turn of the Screw is probably the most famous of ghostly tales and certainly the most eerily equivocal. This new edition includes three rarely reprinted ghost stories from the 1890s, "Sir Edmund Orme," "Owen Wingrave," and "The Friends of the Friends," as well as relevant extracts from James's notebooks and journals.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

About the Author:

T.J. Lustig is in the Department of American Studies at the University of Keele.

Review:

"The Turn of the Screw is the most hopelessly evil story that we have ever read in any literature, ancient or modern."  —Independent

"We are afraid of something unnamed, of something, perhaps, in ourselves . . . Henry James . . . can still make us afraid of the dark."  —Virginia Woolf

"Henry James is as solitary in the history of the novel as Shakespeare is in the history of poetry."  —Graham Greene

"A most wonderful, lurid, poisonous little tale."  —Oscar Wilde

"It really does turn your blood cold."  —Colm Tóibín

"Technically, he is extraordinarily brilliant, and stylistically he’s wonderful."  —David Lodge

"[James] is the most intelligent man of his generation."  —T. S. Eliot

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. A young, inexperienced governess is charged with the care of Miles and Flora, two small children abandoned by their uncle at his grand country house. She sees the figure of an unknown man on the tower and his face at the window. It is Peter Quint, the master s dissolute valet, and he has come for little Miles. But Peter Quint is dead. Like the other tales collected here - Sir Edmund Orme , Owen Wingrave , and The Friends of the Friends - The Turn of the Screw is to all immediate appearances a ghost story. But are the appearances what they seem? Is what appears to the governess a ghost or a hallucination? Who else sees what she sees? The reader may wonder whether the children are victims of corruption from beyond the grave, or victims of the governess s infernal imagination , which torments but also entrals her? The Turn of the Screw is probably the most famous, certainly the most eerily equivocal, of all ghostly tales. Is it a subtle, self-conscious exploration of the haunted house of Victorian culture, filled with echoes of sexual and social unease? Or is it simply, the most hopelessly evil story that we have ever read ? The texts are those of the New York Edition, with a new Introduction and Notes.
