The Turn of the Screw and Other Stories
by Henry James and T. J. Lustig




Overview -
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.
