The governess even takes realization to this idea when she states, “wasn’t he looking through the haunted pane for something he couldn’t see? (147)” This theory could be supported by Mile’s change in demeanor in the scene, “more and more visibly nervous” and “suddenly afraid” because his governess was acting mad (149). The narrator in The Turn of the Screw bestows the reader with the tale of a boy possessed by ghosts. However, vigilant reading of the passage will provide a reader with the story of a boy who is terrified only because he is in the same room as someone suffering a mental
The Turn of the Screw, a novella by Henry James first published in 1898, is the story of a young governess in charge of two children at a secluded estate, Bly, in Essex, England in the 1840s. Bly, being so sequestered in the countryside, as well as being large and spacious, provides James with the ideal setting to relay a frightening horror story. The novella begins with a frame story involving a house party where guests share ghost stories, most importantly involving ghosts visiting children, and ending with a character named Douglas beginning to tell a chilling tale that was given to him by the late governess of his sister. The narrator of his story is an unnamed governess in charge of two orphaned children, who quickly becomes convinced

As Valency argues, the life that Nora lives is one of sheltered fiction. Valency continues, describing Nora as a “rebellious daughter” and Torvald as the “archetype father.” [Valency 155]. This is the exact reason that Nora is so happy in her voiceless marriage: she has never been able to experience independence. Sigmund Freud argues that women look to marry a man like their fathers, in his developing theory called the “Electra Complex.” Although the Electra Complex states that young girls feel jealousy for their own mothers, Freud’s theory on this topic shows that one cannot develop if they are fixated at this stage [Myers].
