In response to Hallam, written by Isobel on November 10, 1997 at 11:27:59
] Interesting idea - Byatt is obviously interested in Hallam as he has an important part in "Angels" as Emily Tennyson's dead fiance, but Hallam died before he really achieved anything so Ash is surely more like Tennyson himself?
Byatt's always claimed she modeled Ash on Browning but used many different Victorian writers as inspiration. So far we least at least five diffrent poets in our discussions as possible models. Good thought.
