The Turn of the Screw and What Maisie Knew : Contemporary Critical Essays

Description

After one hundred years, critical production on The Turn of the Screw shows no sign of abating. A long-standing controversy over the 'reality' or otherwise of the ghosts has given way to a general recognition of textual ambiguity, and recent developments in criticism, including Feminist, Materialist and Poststructuralist readings, have now brought out fundamental underlying issues of gender, class and sexuality. Also included in this volume are essays on What Maisie Knew; one of James's most lucid, yet aesthetically and morally complicated novels.
