Book brief summary
The Turn of the Screw
Henry James’s novels and classics of American and world literature, author of the novels American, Woman Portrait, Wings of the Dove, Ambassadors, etc., are included in the book into the world of psychological mysteries, superstitious expectations, mysterious, terrible and sometimes unexplained events. The novel entitled The Turning of the Screw, which gave the title to the collection, became a kind of "calling card" of James the Innovator and won numerous screen adaptations. The original interpretation of the motive of meeting with ghosts brought the story closer to the parapsychological problem that was popular in the era of James. Outgrowing the "Gothic" plot, The Turn of the Screw turned into a philosophical study of the complexity of the world order and the paradoxes of human perception, and its author came close to the technique of the "stream of consciousness" developed in modernist prose.
