Possession by A.S. ByattTitle:  Possession

Author:  A.S. Byatt

Call #:  BYA

One of the few newer romance novels worthy of the original Romantic Movement, this is a love story that centers on research being done into the lives of two long-dead poets: Randolph Henry Ash and Christabel LaMotte. The young academics involved in the gathering of information find themselves drawn into their work in an unexpected way. Highlighted throughout by examples of mid-Victorian poetry, this novel is as historical as it is emotional. This is a romance novel for the reader who likes a more intelligent read.
