Possession by A. S. Byatt

An academic studying the works of a neglected Victorian poet finds the tangled emotions of the past increasingly reflected in the present. This is a romance and detective story, which combines all the entertaining virtues of popular fiction with the qualities of prodigious narrative, imaginative energy and intelligence.
A.S. Byatt was born in Sheffield. Possession won the 1990 Booker Prize.
