9780140030266: The Turn of the Screw (Modern Classics)

"The Turn of the Screw and The Aspern Papers" combines two of Henry James' most popular works into one conveniently sized volume. "The Turn of the Screw" is an intense psychological tale of terror. Beginning in an old house on Christmas Eve, it is the story of a Governess who comes to live with and take care of two young children. The Governess loves her new position in charge of the young children, however she is soon disturbed when she begins to see ghosts. In "The Aspern Papers" we have the story of a man who travels to Venice in search of Juliana Bordereau, whom he believes is in possession of some personal letters of the famous and now dead American poet, Jeffrey Aspern. Readers will delight in this classic collection of Henry James' most popular novellas.
