  • The Turn Of The Screw As A Representation Of Victorian Sexual Repression - 722 words
    "The Turn of the Screw" as a Representation of Victorian Sexual Repression L.R.G. "The Turn of the Screw" is largely a representational book. For the most part, I think it stands to characterize Victorian views of sexuality. The entire book seems to be sex related in one way or another. Everything that happens, from Miles being kicked out of school to the governess seeing ghosts, can be interpreted with a sexual connotation. When Miles is kicked out of school, no one says exactly why. After reading the letter from the school, the governess only says that, "he's an injury to others." Because of the indirect nature of this discussion, we are left believing that the reason for his dismissal is ...

  • Morbid Satisfaction - 1,686 words
    Morbid Satisfaction Even in her first glimpse of Miles, the governess in Henry James's Turn of the Screw feels instant adoration and affection for the boy who she describes as innocent, at least by outward appearance. As she grows to know Miles, she develops not only an attachment towards him, but an obsession as well. The governess longs to protect Miles from "evil," to protect him from Peter Quint - a man whom she has not only never met, but who is also dead. The closing chapter of Turn of the Screw demonstrates clearly the governess' unordinary obsession to rescue Miles from what she has determined as evil. But, while the governess' supposed objective is protection, the novel ends with Mi ...
