The Turn of the Screw and Other Short Fiction (Bantam Classics)

By James, Henry

New York: Bantam Classics, 1981-09-01. Mass Market Paperback. Good. 403 pages; light spine creasing and edge wear; To read a story by Henry James is to enter a world--a rich, perfectly crafted domain of vivid language and splendid, complex characters. Devious children, sparring lovers, capricious American girls, obtuse bachelors, sibylline spinsters and charming Europeans populate these five fascinating "Nouvelles" --works which represent the author in both his early and late phases. From the apparitions of evil that haunt the governess in "The Turn Of The Screw" to the startling self-scrutiny of an egotistical man in "The Beast In The Jungle," the mysterious tumings of human behavior are skillfully and coolly observed--proving Henry James to be a master of psychological insight as well as one of the finest stylists of modern English literature
