Byatt provides extensive letters, poetry and diaries by major characters in addition to the narrative, including poetry attributed to the fictional Ash and LaMotte.

    He studies insects and views their carnal and otherwise instincts in the humans around him. Byatt determined to follow D. It captures the magic of childhood before going on, ruthlessly, to show how adults create children, only to destroy them. Ann, Elsie's daughter.
