A governess is hired to look after the nephew and niece of a man who has inherited the responsibility for the children after the death of their parents He is very explicit in his instructions to the governess that he is not to be bothered with excessive communications The governess is young and pretty and wants to impress her new employer by doing exactly what he wishes She wants to be seen as competent, and in a sense this need to please proves to be a vulnerability that, as she tries to shield and protect, she actually puts everyone atrisk Risk of what you might ask That becomes the unknown element of the story The reader doesn t really know what I HAVE YOU, BUT HE HAS LOST YOU FOR EVER Questo libro m ha messo i brividi, m ha costretto a leggere solo in presenza del sole per tenermi lontano da buio e tenebre Il film tratto dal breve romanzo di H.

Now you see me, now you don t.
What the Meaning, understanding and certainty all become elusive chimera in this ambiguous game of hide and seek that Henry James plays with us Have you ever been in one of those weird situations where you wondered if you were losing your mind, doubting whether what you were seeing was real And what it was that you were seeing This is one of thosewhat the hecknovels that you often find in the modernist genre Not originally classed as a modernist novel, by now it is viewed as one by many modern critics because of the ambiguity and layers that James managed to capture.
It is just as slippery and ambiguous and as what on earth is happening here as the most obfuscating of the modernist novels one tend Turn of the Screw is a pretty cool story It s about a governess who either heroically attempts to protect her two charges from malevolent ghosts or goes dangerously bonkers James leaves it ambiguous and I love that kind of story Ambiguity works for me Four stars for the plot Kindof an abrupt ending though.
On the other hand there s his writing style I was at this party once and the topic was what would you do if the world was ending and the answer was generally that we would have all the sex James writes like the world is ending and he s decided to have all the punctuation Check this entirely typical sentence out I waited, but nothing came then, in the first place and there is somethingdire in this, I feel, than in an , , , , ,, , There is a presumption that a book, if written concurrent with a certain time period during which a ruler of notable longevity reigned and originating from an area of the world long known, during that time period in particular, for an effusiveness of style in excess of that which may be, at a minimum, absolutely required to convey a particular message or idea, may, on occasion, if not predominantly and generally, tend toward a style that, when compared and contrasted with styles of later writers in other,distant geographies, or even stylists who espouse minimalism within the bounds of the same geographic region, might be best described, at least insofar as it can be generally encapsulated with a description of any sufficient brevity, as, to varying degrees, ponderous, overwrought, and, in the main, at least with respect to the general population, an Redonkulous Where s my SPOOKYI mean, I thought I d get a few good jump scares out of a book with possessed children in it You know what didn t happen, not even once, while I was listening to this book THIS I m not sure why my teenage self thought The Turn of the Screw was worth 4 stars, but my older than teenage self certainly doesn t.
On the surface, it seems like this should be a winner for me in the classic department short, scary short But it was kinda crap So the gist is that this governess is seeing the spirits of these two people One was the ex governess, and the other was the rascally friend of her boss And for some unexplained reason, they ve COME FOR THE CHILDREN The kids won t admit to seeing these spirits, but the gover Me at 50% And 75% And 90% I was actually really excited to read this classic Henry James novella, a gothic ghost story published in 1898 A young woman is hired to be the governess for two young orphans by their uncle, whose good looks and charm impress the governess She wants to impress him in turn with her capability, especially when his main command to her is that she never, NEVER, bother him with any problems or concerns.
She s packed off to the uncle s country estate to meet young Flora and Miles, who are delightful, beautiful children The housekeeper becomes her friend and confidante There are just a few odd things strange noises in the house footsteps, a child s cry and Miles has been expelled from his boarding school for mysterious, unnamed reasons A Very Young Woman S First Job Governess For Two Weirdly Beautiful, Strangely Distant, Oddly Silent Children, Miles And Flora, At A Forlorn EstateAn Estate Haunted By A Beckoning EvilHalf Seen Figures Who Glare From Dark Towers And Dusty Windows Silent, Foul Phantoms Who, Day By Day, Night By Night, Come Closer, Ever Closer With Growing Horror, The Helpless Governess Realizes The Fiendish Creatures Want The Children, Seeking To Corrupt Their Bodies, Possess Their Minds, Own Their SoulsBut Worse Much Worse The Governess Discovers That Miles And Flora Have No Terror Of The Lurking EvilFor They Want The Walking Dead As Badly As The Dead Want Them my imagination had, in a flash, turned real He did stand there I could not decide whether I wasintrigued by the Gothic thriller or the intricate jalebi of the prose, a truly truly labyrinthine prose, which James employs with great effect for the purpose of dissimulation Folks would later dub it unreliable narration You can trust James to phrase the most simplest of ideas and situations in the most imaginative of ways without making a fool of you but if you still insist on clarity, go ahead and tell us whether the governess really did see the ghost or was it all a figment of her overexcited imagination In any case, this is one of the finest examples of a story where the style of writing itself suggests ideas to the reader without stating anything in concrete terms I re read it in one sitting, with racing heart and
