They're actually rather good they are full of plot clues and duh they're a key part of the novel you're reading I mean what is going on here? Do people really hate poetry so much that they're skipping a few pages of it in the middle o

    Read reader ë Possession ✓ srlltd PossessionToo much work for too little rewardI read somewhere that if you pick up a book and you're not enjoying it by either a your age if you are under 50; or b 100 minus your age if you are over 50 you should abandon it and move on There is too much to read and life is too short to be spent reading bad booksI think this applies particularly to books in that grey zone where you can tell the writer is winding up to something and the style and story has enough ooomph in it to keep you powering on despite perhaps your better judgement AS Byatt's Possession A Romance is definitely in that zone It's not that Byatt is not a good wri

    Read reader ë Possession ✓ srlltd PossessionI just finished reading AS Byatt’s novel Possession again for about the fourth time It has been several years since I last read it and I have to say that I saw it in a completely new light It is a literary masterpiece that is exuisitely plotted and written This time around I very carefully studied the epigraphs leading off most of the chapters and all of the beautiful poetry included in the text I don’t know that I gave much than a cursory glance to the poetry during previous reads This time though I focused on Byatt’s poetry and discovered just how much it enriched and influenced the novel’s dual plots Regarding the epigraphs I recommend that the reader carefully study each epigraph before reading the chapter; and then upon finishing the chapter go back and read it again and see if you correctly figured out the true meaning of it There are little puzzles and clues throughout the entire novel most of them residing within the poetry sections This is a beautiful love st
