The Way In
After M. R. James’s ghost story, “The Mezzotint,” the picture of
the mansion watched for change becomes the camera view on
internet, where anyone may go and view the entrance to a home.
They’ll not stop there but scroll along the edges of the scene, to
follow curves of driveways, walks or, now emboldened, cut across
the lawn, find entry through a window to our private lives.
