Liverpool Echo interviews actress Agyness Deyn:
If you read a book you always have a picture in your mind of how you think it should look. Of course, especially in Scotland where it’s their premier novel and most of the people have studied it at school. So they really do know it.
I do understand that, because I feel the same way about Jane Eyre. That was the first proper novel I read when I was 16, and I’ve never yet seen anybody I thought was a good Jane Eyre. (Catherine Jones)
Film director Jane Campion also discusses literature in L'Express (France).
Le cinéma, comme la littérature, interroge notre rapport au réel. En fonction de votre sensibilité et de votre état mental, le monde vous semblera plus ou moins flou, incertain. Celui que j'explore dans mon oeuvre est fortement lié à la littérature romantique du XIXe siècle. La lecture des oeuvres des soeurs Brontë a été un cataclysme. Encore aujourd'hui, je peux toucher du doigt leurs tourments. Les paysages très sombres qu'elles décrivent sont assez proches de ceux de la Nouvelle-Zélande. Le romantisme y côtoie le fantastique.
L'exacerbation des sentiments peut nous éloigner du réel. La leçon de piano était d'ailleurs une variation personnelle des Hauts de Hurlevent, d'Emily Brontë. La facture du film était formellement très étudiée. Parfaite si vous voulez et, pourtant, à l'intérieur du cadre, la passion qui se jouait était explosive. Il n'y avait rien d'académique là-dedans. Du moins j'espère!  (Thomas Baurez) (Translation)
A columnist from The Millions comments on his reading year.
My year has been even more filled with good reading than usual; fortunately, some of the books are so well known there is little need for me to give them a plug, and I will list them at the end so you can point and laugh (“Seriously, you went over half a century without reading Jane Eyre?”). (Stephen Dodson)
Manchester Confidential reports on a MCR Fashion Industry Victorian Gothic Party at which however
While not particularly adhering to the gothic romance theme, with no Wuthering Heights–esque billowy dresses and pussy-bow blouses, the designers displayed great wearable pieces perfect for sauntering around the city. (L'Oreal Blackett)
