Description
Summary:This volume presents the text of the New York Edition of James's classic 1898 short novel, along with documents that place the work in historical context and critical essays that read The Turn of the Screw from several contemporary critical perspectives. The text and essays are complemented by biographical and critical introductions, bibliographies, and a glossary of critical and theoretical terms. In this third edition, a new section details in unique depth the revisions James made from the serialized Colliers Weekly edition to the New York Edition. New documents and illustrations enhance the historical contexts section, and new psychoanalytic essay with a Lacanian perspective appears in the section of contemporary criticism. --from publisher description.
