A 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 freuently 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 multitude of voices through letters poems criticism biography and journal entries as well as the prose of the main narrative Byatt didn t just write some poems to go in her novel she created two major Victorian poets from whole cloth fitted them exactly into a time and a place and made so bold as to have a character say about one of them You can t understand the twentieth century without understanding him Does that mean we can t understand the twentieth century fully in a world where there was never a Randolph Henry Ash This poet isn t a fictionalized Tennyson or Browning he s a completely invented eminent Victorian Christabel LaMotte likewise is something entirely new her poems have a dash of Emily Dickinsonian diction but with French English devout Christian determinedly feminist sensibilities I don t know if anyone calls this book a work of alternate history but it was poignant to think about what would be different in a world that included this poetry I wish I could visit that world just to read the rest of Ragnarok and Melusina The prose itself bordered on poetry to such an extent that sometimes I had to stop to savor a rhythm Like here But he had known immediately that she was for him she was to do with him as she really was or could be or in freedom might have been I would uote but I ve already loaned out the copy I readIn addition to the new old poetry Possession has packed inside it a meditation on the arts of scholarship and biography the most moving writing about celibacy I ve ever come across a critical work on the erotics of reading and a half lament half ode to the powers of time and memory and forgetting And as the cover proclaims it is a romance a set of entwined love stories written with impossible precision and believability It is a book about books but in such a generous way that nearly everything books can be about is in here Reading something like this makes me glad that there is such a thing as literary fiction
