The Turn of the Screw
With an Appreciation by Joseph Conrad
“The Turn of the Screw” was published by Henry James in 1898 in the USA. It is a gothic story novella in which the Author tells us a ghost story in a non-stereotypical way: ghosts are weird extensions of everyday reality. Nonetheless, James refers to the classical Gothic fiction.
Henry James (1843–1916), who was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911, 1912 and 1916, was American but he spent the most of his career in Britain. He is still one of the most important writers of the 19th-century.
This book contains a special note on Henry James by Joseph Conrad (Henry James. An appreciation, 1905) and a detailed bibliography including all the publications of the Author.
