Abstract:

In The turn of the Screw, the story unfolds with the arrival of a new governess at a remote country estate. She has been hired by the uncle of two young orphans to take complete charge of the children's lives and upbringing. Her first peaceful weeks are disturbed by the apparition of the ghosts of two evil servants who once served in the house.

In Daisy Miller, a young American traveling abroad for the first time openly ignores the rigid European social code of the day and earns the disapproval of her fellow Americans.
