Henry James was arguably practitioner of what has been called the psychological ghost story. His stories explore the region which lies between the supernatural or straightforwardly marvellous and the darker areas of the human psyche. This edition includes all ten of his `apparitional` stories, or ghost stories in the fullest collection currently available. The stories range widely in tone and tupe. They include `The Jolly Corner`, a compelling story of psychological doubling;`Owen Wingrave`, which is also a subtle parable of military tradition; `The Friends of the Friend`, a strange story of uncanny love; and `The Private Life`, which finds a shrewd, high comedy in its ghostly theme. The volume also includes James` s great novella `The Turn of the Screw`, perhaps the most ambiguous and disturbing ghost story ever written.
