This book of poems by Patience Agbabi is available at the Brontë Parsonage Museum shop:
Emily's Papers
Patience Agbabi

A collection of new work by poet and performer Patience Agbabi.  Patience was The Brontë Society’s Writer-in-Residence in 2018, and these poems were commissioned to mark the bicentenary of the birth of Emily Brontë.

The issues explored in Emily’s Papers are rooted in the 21st century:  issues such as identity, heritage and ‘otherness’.  Patience describes how each poem ‘sprung out of a certain phrase’ in Wuthering Heights and the resulting collection is a fresh, lively and accessible re-examining of Emily’s famous novel.
