Summary
More than just a simple tale of the supernatural, James poses questions about childhood innocence, corruption and hysteria. The story focuses on a naïve governess who takes charge of two children at the lonely house of Bly. When she begins to see ghosts, she believes that the children do too, with devastating consequences
Summary
The story unfolds with the arrival of a new governess at a remote country estate, who has been hired by the uncle of two young orphans to take complete charge of the children's lives and upbringing. Her first peaceful weeks are disturbed by the apparition of the ghosts of two evil servants who once served in the house
