Much of the hysteria discussed is sexual hysteria. Check out the below link and scroll down to where the sentence reads ,

Taking the story from a psychoanalytic perspective, the modern reader sees an internal conflict in the character of the governess. As mentioned previously, the governess is unable to reconcile her sexual desires.....

Then complete reading the paragraph. It should help.
