James, Henry: Henry James: Ghost Stories. v1. 17-Jul-2021

Gathered here, ten “literary” ghost stories of Henry James. Subtle and ambiguous and psychologically disturbing, these Gothic tales of spectral visitants and uncanny encounters can be interpreted in many ways.

“Ghost stories by Henry James are a true marvel. There are no creepy haunted houses, no bloody or headless apparitions, and yet his ghosts are more frightening than ever: they appear in daylight and most of them are born inside the characters themselves.”(—Goodreads review)

==========
Henry James (15 April 1843 – 28 February 1916) was an American author who relocated to Europe as a young man, eventually becoming a British citizen in 1915. He is regarded as a key transitional figure between literary realism and literary modernism, and is considered by many to be among the greatest novelists in the English language.

As well as fiction, James published articles and books of criticism, travel, biography, autobiography, and plays. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911, 1912, and 1916.

His novella “The Turn of the Screw” has garnered a reputation as the most analyzed and ambiguous ghost story in the English language, and remains his most widely adapted work in other media. He also wrote a number of other highly regarded ghost stories, and is considered one of the greatest masters of the field.
