The apparition had reached the landing half-way up and was therefore on the spot nearest the window, where, at the sight of me, it stopped short Oscar Wilde called Jamess chilling The Turn of the Screw a most wonderful, lurid poisonous little tale. It tells of a young governess sent to a country house to take charge of two orphans, Miles and Flora. Unsettled by a sense The apparition had reached the landing half-way up and was therefore on the spot nearest the window, where, at the sight of me, it stopped short Oscar Wilde called Jamess chilling The Turn of the Screw a most wonderful, lurid poisonous little tale. It tells of a young governess sent to a country house to take charge of two orphans, Miles and Flora. Unsettled by a sense of intense evil within the house, she soon becomes obsessed with the belief that malevolent forces are stalking the children in her care. Obsession of a more worldly variety lies at the heart of The Aspern Papers, the tale of a literary historian determined to get his hands on some letters written by a great poet-and prepared to use trickery and deception to achieve his aims. Both works show Jamess mastery of the short story and his genius for creating haunting atmosphere and unbearable tension. Anthony Curtiss wide-ranging introduction traces the development of the two stories from initial inspiration to finished work and examines their critical reception.
