    The governess says that Miss Jessel looked at Flora determinedly and that she is sure that Flora is lying about something. When she tells Mrs. Over the years, many critics, readers and scholars have provided their own theories about the ending and all of them may be valid from a certain viewpoint. Grose further suggests that they think up a way to get their employer to come home and the governess assumes that he will think she set up a lie because she is lonely. Poet and literary critic Craig Rainein his essay "Sex in nineteenth-century literature", states quite categorically his belief that Victorian readers would have identified the two ghosts as child molesters. She begins to see the spirits of two former servants in the house and the children being acting strangely.

    In discussing this occurrence, the governess and Mrs. Grose cannot see the spirit either. William Veeder sees Miles's eventual death as induced by the governess. The next day the housekeeper comes to the governess and tells of the awful language young Flora used and reasons that the girl must be in contact with some evil person in order to use such language.

    Not a word. Grose about the reason she was out so late, saying that it was because the weather was so beautiful. The uncle stipulates in hiring her that he is never to be contacted and that she is to care for the children entirely on her own. So if you have a spare moment, please tell us your thoughts by writing a reader's review.
