    Paperback ã Possession eBook Ö possession pdf, Possession PDFThat was not what I was expecting this timeI have to admit I did not approach this book this time around with what I would consider pure motives I wasn’t in it to find things I had never found before to revisit a personal classic to explore ideas that I had left behind for the time when I was ready to connect with them in the way that they deserved I wasn’t even in it to re approach situations and characters with a new perspective of age and experienceNo I needed something from this book I can’t really think of any other way to put this really I was self medicating with this bookI’ve heard this talked about in so many different ways if perhaps not in those words by other book lovers that I know that I can’t be the only one who does this I came back to this book because of the transformative experience I had the last two times I needed to be transformed I’ve fallen into a new line of work in recent years and I we

    Paperback ã Possession eBook Ö possession pdf, Possession PDFA honking great piece of literary self gratification a novel about writers all novels about writers should be given a concrete overcoat a grand excuse for A S Byatt to dazzle us with some fancy ventriloquism and yes you can feel the throb of the author's perfervid intelligence like a lawnmower hacking away at the tough grass at the edge of the lawn but after all of that you have to come clean and say that Possession isn't worth the thinnest novelette written by Raymond Chandler or the most offhand poem by e e cummings or the most obscure B side by the Beach Boys either A

    Paperback ã Possession eBook Ö possession pdf, Possession PDFLiterary critics make natural detectivesI loved this novel I know there are plenty of arguments against it but to me it summed up my life in the grey zone between reality lived and consumed in fiction Whoever was caught by the passion of reading a love story that is inexhausible lifelong passionate and thus unlike most love stories between people will recognise the thoughts that accompany the lovers on the tracks of fiction past Whoever considers their library their most important POSSESSION will know the excitement of adding just a single poem's perfect rhythm to a collection already known by heart like a part in our blood circulation as Byatt points outWhoever has felt a novel take POSSESSION of heart and mind for hours on end knows that reading is a curse and a blessing at the same time for it makes one feel angry about being POSSESSED by schedules and everyday life business when all one wants to do is curl up alone and take POSSESSION of t

    Paperback ã Possession eBook Ö possession pdf, Possession PDFA while ago I said to myself I'm going to pay attention to doing things that make me happy So I'm going to cook creatively and read fantasy because I keep forgetting I like those thingsThen I started reading Possession The happiness project got put on the back burner until I was ready to emerge from the Victorian melancholia which placed demands on my time too great to allow for preparing meals I never cried at this book exactly but I frequently wept the way a lemon meringue pie weeps when you leave it out and come back to find dots of moisture on the surfaceOh it was beautiful though a book of such tangible substance that sometimes when I was reading it while standing I would feel as if the book were holding me up instead of the other way around I've read and loved a couple of AS Byatt's short story collections so I knew she had a fine control of language but Possession is on a different plane telling the story with a

    Paperback ã Possession eBook Ö possession pdf, Possession PDFStolen snapshots that defy the laws of space and timePastA poet observes a mystical creature half woman half mermaid scouting cliffs and creeks bathing in unruly seas and still ponds getting drenched in the cascade of his flowing words The ache of losing God is not so acute when intellect is met with incandescent creativity Or with unrestrained love His gentle curiosity breathes life into inert things making them shine with an inner glow of their own because he doesn’t aspire to possess what he loves he cherishes it and makes it flourish in its natural state PresentA self effacing underpaid assistant researcher in a dark room that smells of stale history survives in reality while his mind thrives with verses penned by the dead Victorian poet Randolph Henry Ash Unaware that he possesses a voice of his own he searches for the veiled truths of his life in the legacy of the iconic poetPa

    Paperback ã Possession eBook Ö possession pdf, Possession PDFWinner of the Man Booker Prize in 1990Giving this book 5 stars was not ever in doubt for me This is one of the most remarkable books I've ever read I'm a romantic I admit I love art and art history I love good historical fiction But all that combined still does not make a good book AS Byatt pulls all this together with the most important aspect of any book great writing But she adds something else also something that's hard to put your finger on a uniqueness an edge if you will that puts this work in a class of it's own It's a modern classic without doubt and it's worthy of all it's awards and praise

    Paperback ã Possession eBook Ö possession pdf, Possession PDF“ Like many biographies this was as much about its author as its subject”AS Byatt has characters describing biography as “a form of religion a form of ancestor worship” She is a novelist who loves the academic approach to biography applied to fiction and semi fiction creating po mo metafiction that is rich in texture and research but which can be a little hard for mortals to digest There are two main timelines here a pair of Victorian poets Randolph Henry Ash and Christabel LaMotte loosely based on BrowningTennyson and Christina Rossetti respectively and various modern academics who
