The Turn Of The Screw
The Turn Of The Screw3 3 5 Höfundur: Henry James Lesari: Tony Walker
The story has been filmed and adapted many times, most lately in the 2020 Netflix series 'The Haunting of Bly Manor'. The story concerns a governess who is sent to look after two beautiful children at a remote house in the English countryside. What she experiences there is never fully explained: is she haunted or is she mad?
Henry James was born in 1843 in New York but moved to live in London, where he died in 1916. James is an enormously influential figure in American literature. He wrote several very well-reviewed novels, for example, The Portrait of a Lady, but also The Bostonians, The Ambassadors and The Wings of a Dove.
He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911, 1912 and 1916.
James turned his hand to ghost stories, which of course were all the rage at the end of the 19th Century. The Turn of the Screw is considered by some, even many, as the best ghost story ever written.
