This volume highlights a handful of Henry James' supernatural tales. In truth, the ambiguity within these stories forces the reader to wonder whether they are psychological as much as they are supernatural. Are the protagonists really encountering psychotic, evil, and vengeful ghosts, or are these events merely products of the imaginations of the unhinged minds of unreliable narrators? The problem of interpretation is especially relevant with the author's two most famous ghost stories, "The Turn of the Screw" and "The Jolly Corner," but is also at issue in The Romance of Old Clothes, Sir Edmund Orme, and Owen Wingate. Taken together, these creepy tales reflect an interesting subgroup within Henry James' literature, one well worth exploring on a cold dark night.
