Ponden Hall, a nine bedroom house in Stanbury, West Yorkshire, England, is considered to be the inspiration for Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights and sister Anne's Wildfell Hall.

Watch a Towering Orchestral Tribute to Kate Bush: A 40th Anniversary Celebration of Her First Single, “Wuthering Heights”

Some Americans like their pop musicians to be more accessible, less theatrical, and eccentric—and generally more desperate for the approval of their audience. Kate Bush, thankfully, has never seemed bothered by this need. She could leave the spotlight when she needed to, or leave the music business altogether for a time, and yet remain a creative force to be reckoned with for four decades now. Her legacy has permeated contemporary music since she appeared in 1978, then retired from the stag...

A high school English department goes big to encourage reading

When the students of Mundelein High School in Mundelein, Illinois returned to school from winter break there was something different about the hallways of the English department. Six floor-to-ceiling vinyl prints of book covers had been installed while they were away in the hopes that it would encourage students to talk more about their reading life. School spokesman Ron Girard says that the project was intended to “get students talking about the reading that they do” and has succeeded in...

E-Man #7 - John Byrne art

E-Man v1 #7, 1975 - In his second back-up story of the series, Rog-2000 encounters a haunted house on a dark and stormy night, with a title reference to Emily Bronte's classic novel. For a humorous parody, it is surprisingly well drawn for its genre. John Byrne' large opening panel sets the perfect tone with its gradated zipatone background and painterly wind-blown leaves.

Celebrating Emily Brontë

Only one birthday is “celebrated” in Wuthering Heights. It doesn’t go well. The young Catherine Linton begins her 16th birthday with a modestly optimistic plan to buck the established family pattern of solitary mourning to mark the date when she came into the world (“a puny, seven months child”), but her mother died two hours later. “On the anniversary of [Miss Cathy’s] birth,” Nelly reports, “we never manifested any signs of rejoicing, […]. Her father invariably spent that day alone in the libr...

Which Brontë sister said it? [quiz]

Emily Brontë, born 200 years ago on 30 July 1818, would become part of one of the most important literary trinities alongside her sisters, Charlotte and Anne. Emily’s only novel, Wuthering Heights, polarised contemporary critics and defied Victorian convention by depicting characters from “low and rustic life.” Jane Eyre, written by the eldest Brontë sister, Charlotte, was initially condemned as being “pre-eminently an anti-Christian composition,” however, the text caught the attention of reader...

Emily Brontë Was No Romantic Child Of The Yorkshire Moors; She Was Audacious, Financially Savvy, And Rather Unpleasant

She stalked away from her one paid job (teaching) after only a few months, invested cannily in railway stocks, “she refused to use her rackety health as an excuse, instead throwing herself into strenuous physical domestic labour. … And if by time travel magic we could fast forward Brontë to the age of the suffragettes we would find her snorting in derision and, quite possibly, setting a large dog on the women in purple and green. In other words, Brontë is not on ‘our side’ and were we to meet he...

Ernest Hemingway Creates a Reading List for a Young Writer (1934)

In the spring of 1934, a young man who wanted to be a writer hitchhiked to Florida to meet his idol, Ernest Hemingway. Arnold Samuelson was an adventurous 22-year-old. He had been born in a sod house in North Dakota to Norwegian immigrant parents. He completed his coursework in journalism at the University of Minnesota, but refused to pay the $5 fee for a diploma. After college he wanted to see the country, so he packed his violin in a knapsack and thumbed rides out to California. He sold a few...

Kelly Clarkson "I Don't Think About You"Clarkson dropped a new video for a track from her most recent album, and let's just say it's an Adele-style fuck you: elegant, but pointed. Classy. This is the kind of song Kelly Clarkson jumped from RCA/Sony to Atlantic to be able to release. Her longtime beef with the controlling exec, Clive Davis, comes through in the song's lyrics. He, in his own biography, revealed details on how he tried to dictate which songs she sang. The company pushed her into...

"How is that a haunting question? Of course they would."

Said Freeman Hunt, reacting to the headline "Neil deGrasse Tyson Has A Haunting Question About Bears,"* blogged here yesterday. I said, "The word 'haunt' is way overused. I should do a post about that." So this is that post.The first thing I see is that 14 years ago, in the early months of this blog, I wrote a substantial post about the word "haunted" and the way it is overused.**Next, I see that the verb "to haunt" did not begin as a powerful, ghost-related word. It simply referred to frequency...

Mr. Holland said Ms. Cole’s appointment smacked of a desire to be 'trendy.' He was […]

Lily Cole (001)

When I was asked by the Bronte Parsonage Museum to work on a piece to commemorate Emily Bronte’s birth, I immediately thought of Emily’s pseudonym, and what that gesture represented.   Why could a woman not publish under her own name? What was life like for women living in the UK in the 19th Century? What circumstances would also give rise to a child being found abandoned in a city in the 18th Century, as Heathcliff was? Now I find myself wondering, fleetingly, if I should present the short film...
