Henry James

Due to its original content, the novel became a favorite text of academics who subscribe to New Criticism. The novel has had differing interpretations, often mutually exclusive. Many critics have tried to determine the exact nature of the evil hinted at by the story. However, others have argued that the true brilliance of the novel comes with its ability to create an intimate confusion and suspense for the reader. THE TURN OF THE SCREW is the greatest and most subtle of all English-language ghost stories. H.P. Lovecraft praised its truly potent air of sinister menace and mounting tide of fright and subsequent critics have argued long and hard over the central problem of the story: if the motifs of the traditional ghost story, in the hands of a master, are used to probe the deepest depths of the human psyche, do the resultant terrors spring from the objective return of the spirits of the dead, or from the fears, memories, and guilt the expectation of such apparitions may evoke? Are there any ghosts in this story at all? James himself might have been puzzled by that question. His own remarks make it clear that what he had in mind was a sinister romance, inspired by a ghostly story he had heard from an Archbishop of Canterbury. He wrote of the portentous evil of the demon-spirits in the story, but it was his genius to make them so profoundly mysterious.
