Stacey D'ErasmoThe latest glimpse into Bowen's work is Neil Corcoran's insightful, slender Elizabeth Bowen: The Enforced Return. As the colon suggests, this is an academic study -- the word ''aporia'' will be used -- but Corcoran is also a fan, hooked since his teens, who speaks passionately of ''my own Elizabeth Bowen.'' A professor of English at the University of Liverpool, he is eloquent throughout on two of the strongest strains in Bowen's work: her hauntedness, and what he calls ''the gift or pain or dislocation of living between Ireland and England, of being bilocated.''
