Sketches and the Victorian Lady

There's no Brontë news today, but this doesn't mean that there's no Brontëana around the net.

The illusionist is being presented in several countries. Edward Norton thinks that his character has Heathcliff-like trends.

I have never worked on a costume drama, or in a film so romantic... Eisenheim, that enigmatic foreigner that I play, reminds me to Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights.
We have also discovered two interesting blogs that post Brontë-related topics.

Ravenhill Cottage is posting a series of articles about the Victorian Lady. The last one is about wardrobe and includes this Villette quote:

"How charming she looked when she came down on a sunny Sunday morning, well-dressed and well-humoured... (Charlotte Bronte, Villette)
This other post on Bonecos de Bolso contains some nice sketches drawn from life in Top Withins or Ponden House.
