Happy birthday to Emily Brontë, born on this day in 1818.
In 1972, Elizabeth Hardwick wrote about the careers of the three Brontë sisters: Anne, Charlotte, and Emily.

The emergence of the Brontë sisters is altogether a lucky circumstance and nothing is easier than to imagine all of them dying unknown, their works lost.

Charlotte Brontë: Why Villette is better than Jane Eyre ...

www.telegraph.co.uk › Culture › Books

Apr 21, 2014 - Everybody knows Jane Eyre, but Charlotte Brontë's greatest and most original novel was her last, Villette. ... Charlotte Brontë wrote not one but two masterpieces. ... But Villette, Brontë’s last and – to my mind – greatest novel, is less popular, perhaps because it is so ...



Emily Jane Bronte was born in Yorkshire, England on this day in 1818.
"Oh, I'm burning! I wish I were out of doors! I wish I were a girl again, half savage and hardy, and free; and laughing at injuries, not maddening under them!"
--from WUTHERING HEIGHTS by Emily Brontë

Perhaps the most haunting and tormented love story ever written, Wuthering Heights is the tale of the troubled orphan Heathcliff and his doomed love for Catherine Earnshaw. Published in 1847, the year before Emily Bronte's death at the age of thirty, Wuthering Heights has proved to be one of the nineteenth century's most popular yet disturbing masterpieces. The windswept moors are the unforgettable setting of this tale of the love between the foundling Heathcliff and his wealthy benefactor's daughter, Catherine. Through Catherine's betrayal of Heathcliff and his bitter vengeance, their mythic passion haunts the next generation even after their deaths. Incorporating elements of many genres—from gothic novels and ghost stories to poetic allegory—and transcending them all, Wuthering Heights is a mystifying and powerful tour de force.
