Burton Cottage, home of Robert Southey for a time, is featured in the Mail on Sunday:
In 1837, he received a letter from Charlotte Brontë, seeking his advice on some of her poems. He wrote back praising her talents, but discouraged her from writing professionally, saying: ‘Literature cannot be the business of a woman’s life.’
However, the Jane Eyre author did not let Southey’s advice deter her. Years later, she remarked to a friend that the letter was ‘kind and admirable; a little stringent, but it did me good.’ (Brian Claridge)
Hyperallergic reviews The Complete Stories of Leonora Carrington:
The Sisters,” is a fascinating horror-like tale reminiscent of Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. In this story the beautiful, but very human Drusille, is about to receive her lover, a poverty-stricken King returning from a multi-year voyage. (Douglas Messerli)
Film and TV hairy hunks in The Tullahoma News:
Long-haired male action heroes on the big or small screen are often portrayed as conquerors – whether in getting the girl or physically dominating an opponent on the battlefield.
These heroes are often passionate, short-tempered and stubborn. Think Mr. Darcy in “Pride and Prejudice” or Mr. Rochester in “Jane Eyre.” (Susan Campbell)
The Guardian reviews the restaurant The Straight and Narrow in London:
It is anthem night at the Straight and Narrow in Limehouse, and the piano player is working his way through Dancing Queen, Wuthering Heights and Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of The Heart. He has a boisterous left hand, does Vaughn George Eunson. (Jay Rayner)
ScreenDaily reviews the film Beast:
The collision of two worlds is explosive – at times, it feels like the earthy sensuality of Andrea Arnold’s Wuthering Heights chafing against the buttoned up propriety of Joanna Hogg’s Archipelago. (Wendy Ide)
Nightie fever in The Telegraph:
But I’m more than ready to take the proper, old-fashioned, blousy Jane Eyre-style nightgown as a day dress. Is it wide? Is it comfy? Does it fall past your knees? Would it be acceptable for mustering, in the event of a house fire, in the walled garden with Mr Rochester? If you can answer yes to all of the above, then you’ve got yourself a cool nightie dress. (Kate Finnigan)
