American Imago. XXVIII, 1971: The Turn of the Screw: Coincidentia Oppositorum. Rictor Norton. Pp. 373-390.

Joseph William Slap

Norton stresses the use of coincidentia oppositorum, or the union of opposites in The Turn of the Screw; good and evil, male and female, homosexual and heterosexual are combined in the ambiguously portrayed characters. More striking is Norton's demonstration of different levels in the work: it is a morality play (the garden at Bly is the Garden of Eden; Miles and Flora are Adam and Eve, etc.); it is an account of an inquisition replete with witches, exorcism, and torture; and it is susceptible to analysis on an Oedipal sexual level.
