Henry James was greatly concerned in his work with the conflict between American and European culture and its affect on the literature of the respective areas. The Turn of The Screw microcosmically explores the theme of disagreement deriving from difference in point of view in the form of a supernatural tale. Readers can unlock the secrets of this, an often confusing literary task, with this Thornes Classic edition. It provides a continuous commentary and explanation of the complex devices used by James and clarifies the non-chronological timeline for the inexperienced reader of James' work. It is a useful study guide when preparing for exams and essays and includes comprehensive backgrounds on the author and the story itself.
