In reply to All you poetry lovers: sign on for Possession! posted by Jane Elizabeth on August 27, 1997 at 13:26:06
] If you love poetry, you'll want to read Possession. It concerns a secret love affair between two Victorian poets. A.S. Byatt wrote reams of poetry for the story (although some of us admit to doing a bit of skimming).
You mean I'm not the only one who skimmed some of this?! :-) I loved the story, but I have always had a tough time with poetry (probably just a lack of patience - I always just wanted to get on with the actual story!), so I did skim a lot of it. I'm so glad to know that I'm not alone! When are we group reading this?
