Poetry. THREE NOVELS revisits the terrain of the Victorian novel, entering that world with a particular affinity for the feminine within its social and physical landscape. Taking cues from three different novels, thesepoems show the intimacies that make "adhesive relation" through troth, kin or links to landscape. Who owns this body, this estate? Where does the woman hide and what is the empowering eros of her role? THREE NOVELS proposes "disguise as clairvoyant," and here the wily female body is resistant to ownership as it slips through the hidden paths and plot twists, through the downy lawns, the nocturnal byways, and the gritty train stations into the "accounts most accurate to the invention." "Elizabeth Robinson's new and original collection recasts three mysterious novels into poetic prose fragments each of which underscores questions also raised in the novels: what is to be believed, which clues should be followed, which layer of meaning represents any form of truth.... This original and intriguing exploration also urges reading itself as a way to grasp our lives"—Martha Ronk.
