The Turn of the Screw In the Cage

The Turn of the Screw In the Cage By Henry James
This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition brings together one of literature’s most famous ghost stories and one of Henry James’s most unusual novellas. In The Turn of the Screw, a governess is haunted by ghosts from her young charges past; Virginia Woolf said of this masterpiece of psychological ambiguity and suggestion, We are afraid of something unnamed, of something, perhaps, in ourselves…Henry James…can still make us afraid of the dark.In his rarely anthologized novella In the Cage, James brings his incomparable powers of observation to the story of a clever, rebellious heroine of Britain’s lower middle class. Hortense Calisher, in her Introduction, calls it a delicious story, the more so because it confounds what we expect from James.
The Turn of the Screw In the Cage makes you think about having a person that cares for you can make all the difference in your life.
This was my first of The Turn of the Screw In the Cage to read and it was so good that it went by way to fast as I couldn’t seam to lay it down. I will be looking for all her other Kindle books now.
