Four of the best-known and best-loved works of short fiction by a recognized master of the genre.

Henry James was a master of psychology, subtlety, and suspense. He created fear by using shadows rather than by conjuring up monsters. He created terror by showing the eyes of the terrorized, not by revealing what horrifying vision they had seen. While The Turn of the Screw induces fear through general impressions and subjuective visions, the other stories in this volume probe different uncomfortable feelings: desire, longing, deep dissatisfaction.

The four novellas in this collection—The Turn of the Screw, Daisy Miller, The Aspern Papers, The Beast in the Jungle—each offers its own surprise twist, an unexpected event or understanding that alters how the story is understood. And with each surprise, James reminds us that terror and tragedy can spring up even in the most banal settings, and that one need look no further than one's own heart to find fear.
