The ambiguous intent of Henry James’s horror story The Turn of the Screw has fascinated and divided its readers since its publication in 1898. The division arises between the apparitionists and the nonapparitionists in interpretation of the plot and the characters. Thomas Mabry Cranfill and Robert Lanier Clark, Jr., have here taken up the argument and made an interpretation of their own. The authors carefully considered the mountainous critical comment, studied James’s statements regarding his intent, and minutely scrutinized the story itself. After all this probing of opinions and following of clues and observing of human beings in action, they have come out strongly on the side of the nonapparitionists. The authors base their conclusion on analyses of character, centrally that of the governess, whom they consider the protagonist of the fearsome drama, but peripherally those of Mrs. Grose, the children, the uncle in Harley Street, and even the deceased Miss Jessel and Peter Quint. Relentlessly they relate every episode, action, and speech to the character of the governess and her relationships with those around her at Bly, picturing her as a psychological “case” whose abnormal mental state brings to those around her the inescapable misery they all suffer. The authors’ analysis unfolds as interestingly in terms of character and motive as if the reader did not already know what happens in James’s much-read story. It moves, moreover, with something of the same suspense as James’s horror tale, although the tension is intellectual rather than emotional. Each additional disclosure of evidence, the resolution of each situation, and the clarification of every puzzling ambiguity builds the analysis step-by-inevitable-step to its inescapable conclusion. The style of the analysis is graceful, urbane, and witty. The introduction gives an excellent appraisal of literary comment on James’s story and an illuminating summary of the literary “war” over the meaning of it; the bibliography provides an impressive list of books and articles on this subject, annotated to indicate in what particular ways each makes a contribution to the controversy.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: sehr gut, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar Henry James, 14 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Henry James Geschichte „The Turn of the Screw“ brachte nicht nur unzählige Interpretationen und Diskussionsstunden bei Literaten hervor, sondern sie diente schon mehrfach als Basis für eine Verfilmung. Die erste Verfilmung mit dem Titel „The Innocents“ ist 1961 unter der Regie von Jack Clayton entstanden und gilt bis heute als ein Meisterstück und Klassiker des „British Horror Cinema“. Sowohl das Original in Schriftform als auch die filmische Adaption erreichen auf ihre jeweils eigene Weise ein hohes Maß an Ambivalenz hinsichtlich der Natur und Realität der Gespenster und ihrer Opfer zu erzeugen. In diesem Essay versuche ich die Mittel, mit denen die Doppeldeutigkeit erzeugt wird, herauszustellen und anschließend miteinander zu vergleichen. Zunächst gehe ich auf die Geschichte von Henry James ein und versuche den Beweis für die Hypothese zu liefern, dass die Essenz der Geschichte darin besteht, sie nicht eindeutig interpretieren zu können. Im zweiten Teil der Arbeit wird der Film in Bezug auf seine Umsetzung der Doppeldeutigkeit analysiert und schließlich ein Fazit aus beiden Teilen gezogen.

Sleepy Hollow terkenal suram dan dihantui oleh penunggang kuda tanpa kepala. Namun, reputasi buruknya tidak menyurutkan niat Ichabod Crane untuk datang dan melamar Katrina Van Tassel, putri semata wayang keluarga kaya raya di kota itu. Suatu malam, sebelum Ichabod berhasil mencapai tujuannya, dia bertemu dengan hantu penunggung kuda tanpa kepala yang dibicarakan orang-orang. Ichabod berusaha melarikan diri, tapi hantu itu mengejarnya, bertekad untuk mencabut nyawanya. Selain The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, ikuti pula kisah mencekam tentang hari-hari terakhir seorang pria menjelang ajalnya dalam The Fall of The House of Usher, taman misterius nan mematikan dalam Rappaccini's Daughter, pembalasan dendam dalam The Cask of Amontillado, dan seorang guru muda yang berusaha menyelamatkan dua orang muridnya dari cengkeraman hantu dalam The Turn of The Screw.
