PinkMonkey.com Digital Library-The Turn of the Screw by Henry James


Something would have passed, in life, between us; if nothing had passed, one of us
would have moved. The moment was so prolonged that it would have taken but little
more to make me doubt if even I were in life. I canít express what followed it save by
saying that the silence itself-which was indeed in a manner an attestation of my
strength-became the element into which I saw the figure disappear; in which I
definitely saw it turn as I might have seen the low wretch to which it had once
belonged turn on receipt of an order, and pass, with my eyes on the villainous back that
no hunch could have more disfigured, straight down the staircase and into the
darkness in which the next bend was lost.
