Summary of Section XIX
The governess takes Mrs. Grose to the pond and decides that Flora has taken the boat to the other side. They find the boat hidden in the trees. Little Flora comes out of the wood, and Mrs. Grose hugs her. The governess, however, has had it and asks her, where is Miss Jessel?
Commentary on Section XIX
The governess feels she no longer has anything to lose, so she says the name of the ghost deliberately to make Flora confess. This is putting everything on the line, for the housekeeper is there too who still acts as though she believes the governess.
