Dividing Bar

Well this is an interesting one: The Turn of the Screw with a tutor rather than a governess and with a Miles in early adolescence that therefore turns into a story about repressed homosexuality -- unsurprisingly from de la Iglesia! Kind of thuddingly literal-minded but well worth a look. Some dialogue at the beginning is in Basque.
