The Turn of the Screw Chapter 22 Summary

  • As soon as the Governess is left alone with Miles, she misses her friend, Mrs. Grose. However, left in charge, she does her best to make everything run smoothly.
  • The Governess doesn't see Miles until dinner; after the departure of his sister and Mrs. Grose, he spent the day on his own.
  • The Governess struggles to act natural even in these odd circumstances. She and Miles discuss Flora's health; they eat a polite meal together while the maid is around, but, as soon as she leaves, he states, rather menacingly, that they're alone.
