The turn of the screw
Part of the World Classics series
An unnamed narrator listens to a male friend reading a manuscript telling the story of how a young governess is hired by a man who has become responsible for his young nephew and niece after the death of their parents.
He lives mainly in London and is not interested in raising the children himself.
The imagery of The Turn of the Screw is reminiscent of the gothic genre, creating intimate confusion and suspense.
