The poet / Louisa Reid.

Reid, Louisa, (author. ).


Bright, promising Emma is entangled in a toxic romance with her former professor--and she's losing control. Cruel, charming Tom is idolized by his students and peers, confident he holds all the cards. In their small Oxford home, he manipulates and undermines her every thought and act. Soon, he will push her to the limit and she must decide: to remain quiet and submit, or to take her revenge. Written in verse and charged with passion and anger, The Poet is a portrait of a deeply dysfunctional relationship, exploring coercive control, class, and privilege. It is also a page-turning tale of female solidarity and survival.-- provided by publisher.
