6: Themes

The Turn of the Screw

Henry James, 1898
Famous for: AMBIGUITY. And some pretty creepy encounters with some pretty creepy ghosts.

If there was one thing Henry James was clear on in The Turn of the Screw, it was his theme: The innocent must be protected from corruption. But what kind of corruption? This is James we’re talking about! Of course the answer to that question is ambiguous.
