These discussions revolved around the pivotal notion of the ghosts and their existence in the home of Bly, which, when established, serves as a basis for the interpretation of the role of the frame and its characters. Leaving the readers to imagine the things transpiring in the story does not only add suspense to the readers of the book but it also adds on the effect of terror that the story brings.
