The Turn of the Screw is a book found in The Swan. It was written by Henry James and originally published in 1898. The book tells the story of a young governess at a remote estate, who slowly comes to realize her young charges are being haunted by the ghosts of their former governess and the valet with whom she was romantically involved.

The heroine becomes more and more convinced that these two ghosts mean harm to the children, and her efforts to protect them end in tragedy. However, the reader is left with the strong impression that the two ghosts were figments of the governess' imagination.

A dramatization of the book was filmed in 1957, under the title The Others, for the US television series Matinee Theatre.
