Possession

Possession

Author: A.S. Byatt Format: eBook Release Date: 18/01/2005

Winner of England's Booker Prize and a literary sensation Possession is an exhilarating novel of wit and romance, at once an intellectual mystery and a triumphant love story. As a pair of young scholars research the lives of two Victorian poets, they uncover their letters, journals, and poems, and track their movements from London to Yorkshire -- from spiritualist snces to the fairy-haunted far west of Brittany. What emerges is an extraordinary counterpoint of passion and ideas.Performed by Virginia Leishman
