Summary, etc.: Lucy Snowe is a stoic young Englishwoman. Beset by adverse circumstances, on a momentary whim she travels to Belgium to seek her livelihood as a teacher in a girls' boarding school. There, surrounded by giddy pupils, under the control of the cunning school matron, wooed by an eccentric professor, and visited by the ghost of a nun, Lucy begins her adventure in true gothic fashion. James is the acknowledged master of the psychological novel, which profoundly influenced the 20th-century literary world. The power of his prose and the skill with which he marshals seemingly insignificant details to accomplish his purpose sustains the listener's interest and compels continued contemplation.
