"The Turn of the Screw"It may be of course above all what suddenly broke into this gives the previous time a charm of stillness - that hush in which something gathers or crouches. The change was actually like the spring of a beast.More enjoyable than "The Aspern Papers", but I still wouldn't call myself a fan of Henry James. Is the current governess correct about the malevolent presence of the ghosts of the manservant and ex-governess and their malign influence on the two young children in her care? Or is she merely a neurotic imagining things? Who knows."The Aspern Papers"I hated the story and all the characters. I hoped that the horrible old woman would lose her papers, but didn't want the loathsome critic to get what he wanted either, and wished that the pathetic niece would either get a grip or throw herself in the canal.1/2 a star for the Aspern Papers, 3 stars for The Turn of the Screw, so I'll give it 2 stars overall.

A work that is deeply psychological, extremely creepy at turns, and that explores themes of domesticity, sexual politics, and the supernatural.
