    Abstract

    In each of these stories there is a slowly escalating sense of unease and dread, ultimately shifting into the wildly uncanny. James’ characters exist in a world of ancient objects whose atrocious histories begin to repeat when they are disturbed, and the blinkered repression common to James’ narratives only amplifies the shock of the spectral appearance.
