This volume presents the text of the New York Edition of James’s classic 1898 short novel, along with documents that place the work in historical context and critical essays that read The Turn of the Screw from several contemporary critical perspectives. The text and essays are complemented by biographical and critical introductions, bibliographies, and a glossary of critical and theoretical terms. In this third edition, a new section details in unique depth the revisions James made from the serialized Colliers Weekly edition to the New York Edition. New documents and illustrations enhance the historical contexts section, and new psychoanalytic essay with a Lacanian perspective appears in the section of contemporary criticism.

3.0 The Turn of the Screw
3.5 starsThis is a perfect ghost story. It slowly and continuously gets more creepy and has that vague way of doing things to keep you guessing even after it's over.

Lui, l’inserzionista, è un gentiluomo, scapolo, bello come solo i personaggi dei romanzi possono essere. Ardito, cortese e affascinante. La giovane rimane così colpita dall’uomo che accetta di o...
