Additional Details

Winner of England's Booker Prize, a coast-to-coast bestseller, and the literary sensation of the year, Possession is a novel of wit and romance, at once an intellectual mystery and a triumphant love story. Revolving around a pair of young scholars researching the lives of two Victorian poets, Byatt creates a haunting counterpoint of passion and ideas.

Not a big fan of romantic poetry, I definitely struggled through the poetic passages concerning Christabel and Ash.

The experience of reading the book was not an easy one, but at the end, I found it impossible not to be swept away by the beauty of this novel.
