The Turn of the Screw

The Turn of the Screw Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- In your opinion, are the ghosts real, or are they manifestations of the Governess's imagination?
- What exactly is so scary about Peter Quint (well, aside from the fact that he's dead)?
- Why are the Governess and Mrs. Grose so disturbed by the idea that the children might know about the illicit relationship between Miss Jessel and Peter Quint?
- What, if anything, do you think the ghosts are trying to do to the children?
- Why does Miles die?
