turn of the screw
I think so too (about Quint being that sort of predator). Though it goes unstated just exactly what Peter and Jessel did, one could easily assume that they behaved inappropriately in front of the children and perhaps worse. It's impossible not to read into it more than what is shown despite the fact that Henry James just meant it as a little ghost story. Scholars have been picking it apart for years and I can't blame them for that.
