A. S. Byatt

Byatt provides extensive letters, poetry and diaries by major characters in addition to the narrative, including poetry attributed to the fictional Ash and LaMotte. I think rather the opposite is the case—this kind of fictive narrator can creep closer to the feelings and inner life of characters—as well as providing a Greek chorus—than any first-person mimicry. He secretly takes away the documents — a highly unprofessional act for a scholar — and begins to investigate. Protective of LaMotte, Bailey is drawn into helping Michell with the unfolding mystery. The two scholars find more letters and evidence of a love affair between the poets with evidence of a holiday together during which — they suspect — the relationship may have been consummated ; they become obsessed with discovering the truth. At the same time, their own personal romantic lives — neither of which is satisfactory — develop, and they become entwined in an echo of Ash and LaMotte.
