Based on the novel by A. S. Byatt, Possession follows Roland Michell, a scholar studying the work of Randolph Henry Ash, and Maud Bailey, an academic researching Victorian poet Christabel LaMotte. After discovering a series of love letters between Ash and LeMotte, Michell and Bailey travel around the world to discover more about this secret romance. The character of Christabel LaMotte was inspired by Christina Rossetti who was known to be connected with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Work of the Pre-Raphaelites can be seen in the Beauty’s Awakening: Drawings by the Pre-Raphaelites and Their Contemporaries from the Lanigan Collection.
