“I was absolutely determined to give people in Yorkshire a chance to see To Walk Invisible before everyone else because the Brontë sisters are such an important part of the county’s culture and heritage. “I also wanted to than all those people in Yorkshire who were so helpful while we were filming and who contributed to the film. I hope lots of people will join us for the screening.” The evening will be hosted by BBC Radio 5 live presenter Anna Foster, who will interview Sally Wainwright and executive producer Faith Penhale at the start of the screening. Members of the cast are expected to attend too.
Cluess can create an unnerving monster, like R’hlem the Skinless Man, and write a crackling battle scene. But she also swims deep in the thoughts of her heroine, who’s simultaneously defiant and unsure of herself. Is it clear that Cluess adores the Harry Potter series and “Jane Eyre”? Yes. So do you. So does everyone. What matters is that her voice is her own. (Jeff Giles)GhanaWeb has an analysis of the song Dear Rap by Sarkodie and it is quite interesting:
What is more, seeing the name Emily brings back memories of Emily Brontë and her classic novel “Wuthering Heights,” with its murderous Byronic hero Heathcliff. Heathcliff sort of symbolizes evil or demon in this great work of a haunting novel.The Daily Sabah (Turkey) talks about an exhibition at the Pera Museum, The Cold from the Balkans:
Thus, the “mind” of this netherworld of Sarkodie’s “Dear Rap” takes after “Wuthering Heights” in some important respects—love, vindictiveness, betrayal, melancholy, wealth and privation, jealousy, raw hatred, death, materialism, and family. Human nature in its overt and covert rawness is what we are basically referring to.
The dog that injured Catherine Earnshaw—supposedly Heathcliff’s first love—could have looked as the panting, cavorting bulldog in the music video of “Dear Rap”[.] (Francis Kwarteng)
The curator linked this phenomenon to the ideas of his favorite philosopher, the French theorist Gilles Deleuze. "What Deleuze called the process of individuation is at the heart of this show," Akay said. "For Deleuze, the individualization does not take place solely around the individual but more significantly around her relationship with nature. I also had Virginia Woolf's 'Waves' and the winds of the Wuthering Heights in mind."

I Uppsala uppmanas studenten på A-nivån att kortfattat definiera begreppet ”romantik” eller ”gotik”. Vidare uppmanas studenten ange ett par verk av Charlotte Brontë och E T A Hoffmann samt ange vilket land respektive författare kommer ifrån. (Christopher Lagerqvist and Josefin Holmström) (Translation)Yorokobu (in Spanish) reviews Daniel Coyle's The Talent Code:
Lo que Coyle denomina como ‘entrenamiento perseverante’ o práctica profunda también puede estar detrás del éxito literario de las hermanas Brontë. El investigador relata cómo de escribir vulgares réplicas de libros de la época, Charlotte, Emily y Anne se convirtieron en escritoras de fama internacional con libros como Cumbres borrascosas o Jane Eyre, como consecuencia de años de «práctica intensa».
