    At the governess's suggestion, Mrs. She regains her composure, looks at James with droopy eyes. The woman reading has a very pleasing voice and the recording is of professional quality. Rumors about Daisy meeting with young Italian gentlemen make her socially exceptionable under these criteria.

    The unwritten word is also a symbol that SparkNotes points out. Winterbourne then informs Daisy that he must go to Geneva the next day. The primary uncertain element of is whether there are ghosts scaring the governess and the children, or whether the governess is actually going insane. The Governess is left in charge of two young children, Miles and Flora, of whom she later becomes obsessed with, describing them as 'angelic'.

    Miles never speaks of the matter, and the governess is hesitant to raise the issue. 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. The Turn of the Screw has been the subject of a range of adaptations and reworkings in a variety of media, and these reworkings and adaptations have, themselves, been analysed in the academic literature on Henry James and neo-Victorian culture. In Rome, Winterbourne and Daisy meet unexpectedly in the parlor of Mrs. Winterbourne, infuriated with Giovanelli, asks him how he could dare to take Daisy to a place where she runs the risk of catching " Roman Fever ". Major themes[ edit ] Throughout his career James was attracted to the ghost story.
