Read in January, 2011

Originally, I bought this as a text book for my English Literature class while I studied in the UK. To be honest, without having taught in the class it must be so difficult for a foreigner like me to understand these highly sophisticated novels collected in here.

Among the four stories, I rather prefer Sir Edmund Orme and The Friends of the Friends, than The Turn of the Screw, the infamous story of a governess in her unstable psychological state, and Owen Wingrave, that provides less interesting and more complicated settings of the characters, whilst the former two can be appreciated mostly as romance stories as well.
