The Turn of the ScrewLarge Print - 1997
The Turn of the Screw is about ghosts and reveals the dark side of humanity. James's story is based on an earlier one told to him by the Archbishop of Canterbury in January 1895. The Archbishop's story tells of young children, left in the care of servants in an old country house following the death of their parents. The servants, however, are evil and uncaring and the children inherit their legacy of wickedness. In their turn, the servants die and come back to haunt the country house and torment the children.

"I hesitated; then I judged best simply to hand her my letter – which, however, had the effect of making her, without taking it, simply put her hands behind her. She shook her head sadly. "Such things are not for me, miss."
My counselor couldn't read! I winced at my mistake, which I attenuated as I could, and opened my letter again to repeat it to her."
