Friendly informal group discussing the real Wuthering Heights: Will the Real Wuthering Heights Please Stand Up. Come and join us and find out. It may have been closer than you think!
A discussion about teaching and learning the Brontës will be led by Belinda Hakes who is Head of English at Wyke College.
The first, very informal get-together, began with a very short talk about laudanum and other common nineteenth century remedies. The discussion which followed widened to cover a number of related topics including what Mr Brontë did and – perhaps more significantly - did not annotate in his copy of Graham’s Modern Domestic Medicine and whether Emily’s final illness really was consumption.
