The Turn of the Screw Teaching Unit
Excerpt From this Document
- Why does Miles’ expulsion from school become a point of such importance in this novel?
- Provide support for the following thesis: Miles and Flora--A Study of Two Possessed by Evil.
- Provide arguments to support the contention that this is a story of a country parson’s daughter whose obsession with evil deranges her mind.
- Provide a logical supposition of your own to explain why Henry James chose to make this such an ambiguous novel. Or, if the story line does not seem ambiguous to you, refute the notion that it is an ambiguous story line.
- Write an essay in which you discuss the function of Mrs. Grose in this novel.
- What is Douglas’ function in the novel? (Remember, he is the one the story focuses on in the prologue.)
- Identify and discuss points in the novel that lead some critics to maintain that the governess and her actions are a result of her sexual repression.
- Assuming that the governess did actually see ghosts and that she does not just imagine their existence, trace the battle between good and evil in this novel and identify who wins and why.
