Roland is an academic researcher who discovers some important letters written by a famous Victorian poet, Randolph Henry Ash. Ash was presumed to have been totally devoted to his wife, but Roland finds letters written to another unnamed woman, and soon determines that the intended recipient was another, less well-known poet, Christabel LaMotte. Roland contacts Maud, an expert on LaMotte's life and work. Despite her skepticism, the two begin to investigate, and uncover a wealth of information about the affair between the two poets.

A well executed parallel between the modern day scholars' and the Victorian poet's love spiced with intrigues. Great scenery.

just finished the book and then watched the movie, which was better than I expected. very complex novel made into a much less complex movie. I liked the parallels between the Victorian and the modern romances. loved the scholarly intrigue and the politics of academia.

The book Possession by A.S. Byatt that the movie was based on was wonderful. The characters were believable and compelling.
Unfortunately, the movie did not live up to the book. The romance between the movie characters was not convincing, unlike the book.

Read the book, forget about the movie.
