    Condition: fair. The book is in decent condition. However the pages of the text (and one critical essay) have been highlighted extensively (see third picture). Still readable. Out of print. Edited with a preface and notes by Robert Kimbrough. The copy text is that of the New York Edition (1908). This edition of the classic Gothic novella includes a selection of backgrounds and sources, and a selection of essays in criticism. One of the most chilling and horror-inducing ghost stories Henry James, or anybody for that matter ever wrote. Even more terrifying because so much of it hinges on the governess – is she telling the truth? Have the Freudian readings destroyed her credibility? Like 'Dracula', the novella lends itself as a door to the unspoken taboos of late Victorian society. A must read. A course text for NTU's module HL8001: Madness in Literature and Film.
