This Modern Library Paperback Classics edition brings together one of literature's most famous ghost stories and one of Henry James's most unusual novellas. In The Turn of the Screw, a governess is haunted by ghosts from her young charges past; Virginia Woolf said of this masterpiece of psychological ambiguity and suggestion, We are afraid of something unnamed, of something, perhaps, in ourselves...Henry James...can still make us afraid of the dark.
In his rarely anthologized novella In the Cage, James brings his incomparable powers of observation to the story of a clever, rebellious heroine of Britain's lower middle class. Hortense Calisher, in her Introduction, calls it a delicious story, the more so because it confounds what we expect from James.
Hortense Calisher is the author of twenty-two books, including the National Book Award nominees False Entry; Herself: Autobiography of a Writer; and Collected Stories of Hortense Calisher. She lives in Manhattan and upstate New York.
"[James] is the most intelligent man of his generation."
--T. S. Eliot
