The Sunday Times (South Africa) published a review of Lyndall Gordon's Outsiders: Five Women Writers Who Changed the World.
At the core of this book is what Gordon refers to as “an alternative to power”. The Brontë sisters were criticised as “brutal, unwomanly” for exposing domestic violence in their novels, she points out. “This speaks right to this time when there is a tsunami of public opinion sweeping everywhere with the #MeToo campaign.” The challenge of silence surrounding victims of power persists.
Gordon quotes the young Jane Eyre: “Speak, I must.” (Karina M. Szczurek)
Wielki Buk does a video review of Jane Eyre in Polish. The Brontës, Robbie Burns, Scott and Scotland' on AnneBrontë.org. Yesterday The Guardian had an article on Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights turning 40.
