When the story first begins, it appears to be a very typical ghost story. The greatest piece of evidence that the governess is seeing ghosts is the fact that she sees Peter Quint and then describes him to Mrs. Grose only to understand who she was seeing after being told. However, because she's the only one to see the ghosts and only believes the children to see the ghosts, there is a very strong argument to be made that the governess was in fact insane. I am of the mind that the ghosts are a manifestation of the governess's state of mind. What do you think?
