The Penguin English Library Edition of Daisy Miller and The Turn of the Screw by Henry James "I'm a fearful, frightful flirt! Did you ever hear of a nice girl that was not?" This edition contains two of Henry James's most popular short works. Travelling in Europe with her family, Daisy Miller, an exquisitely beautiful young American woman, presents her fellow-countryman Winterbourne with a dilemma he cannot resolve. Is she deliberately flouting social convention in the outspoken way she talks and acts, or is she simply ignorant of those conventions? In Daisy MillerHenry James created his first great portrait of the enigmatic and dangerously independent American woman, a figure who would come to dominate his later masterpieces. Oscar Wilde called James's chilling The Turn of the Screw 'a most wonderful, lurid poisonous little tale'. It tells of a young governess sent to a country house to take charge of two orphans, Miles and Flora. Unsettled by a sense of intense evil within the houses, she soon becomes obsessed with the belief that malevolent forces are stalking the children in her care. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.… (mer)

W-what the hell was that!!!!!?????!!!!!!!!
This felt like trying to read through Bourdieu’s incomprehensibly convoluted writing; I kept getting lost to no avail. Can’t seem to be able to draw my own conclusions because everything felt like a floating mess. Finishing this really felt as if I had just been exorcised.
I feel like I need a palate cleansing after this. ( )

4 stars for Daisy Miller, 2.5 for The Turn of the Screw ( )

The Turn of the Screw: Read this in prep. for seeing the newest adaption (there are at least a dozen already...) which is the 2020 “The Turning.”

Overall thoughts of the novella; We are left wondering if this is truly a ghost story or a story of a woman losing her mind. Perhaps a bit of both? Our unreliable narrator leaves us wondering what her true motives are in looking after these children. Does she truly care? Is she more after the man of the house’s heart? Are the ghosts real or has her mind run away from her in this manor of shadows and troublesome children? Overall enjoyed the story and the last chapter did have me holding my breath!

Won’t say much more as the story is so very short, but the scariest part of this is honestly the obsession that our main character has with the beauty of the children, Miles in particular. I’m just stepping foot into victorian era literature and their obsession with a beautiful face astounds me.

Horror of two beghosted children and their governess. ( )

Just finished these two. I think I liked "The Turn of the Screw" best because it was a suspenseful ghost story and it really held my attention. I could never exactly figure out what "Daisy Miller" was about. Just a girl who was young and kind of naive and people didn't like it when she didn't go by their social rules. And it was only 90 pages, so I didn't really think it said too much -- at least not to me. ( )

The story had held us, round the fire, sufficiently breathless, but except the obvious remark that it was gruesome, as, on Christmas eve in an old house, a strange tale should essentially be, I remember no comment uttered till somebody happened to say that it was the only case he had met in which such a visitation had fallen on a child.
