The Sydney Morning Herald has writer Donna Mazza share the books that changed her. One of them was
Wuthering Heights
Emily Brontë
When I studied this at school, I decided to be a writer. The rugged, windswept landscape and the great house, all neglected and shadowy, are the epitome of Gothic. I think I tried to be Cathy for a while, but no moody man could live up to the real Heathcliff. I just love the way she tangles Heathcliff and Cathy up with the atmosphere of the place: they are in the rock and the twisted trees, their voices are in the wind.
iNews features writer Milly Johnson.
“My hero and heroine do have to have good values,” she continued. “Can readers put themselves into the position of my characters? Heathcliff hangs a dog in Wuthering Heights but I could not have that animal cruelty in one of my stories because I couldn’t climb into the skin of that character.” (Adam Sherwin)
According to Wired,
Brontë, Woolf, Varda: Women artists have always excelled at cracking open old structures—the manmade logos of chronos. (Jason Kehe)
À Pala de Walsh (in Portuguese) makes a point of saying that,
Apesar das pretensões shakespearianas, Alcott nunca foi uma Brontë, em boa verdade nunca foi além do cordel e nem mesmo o espírito de uma condessa de Ségur teve. (Bernardo Vaz de Castro) (Translation)
Buxton Advertiser has selected '9 Peak District locations that have appeared in blockbuster films you might not know about', such as
4. Dovedale
The river bank used in BBC's 2006 version of Jane Eyre, and Dovedale was used in The Other Boleyn Girl 2008 and Robin Hood 2010. (Jessica Dallison)
Haddon Hall is also on the list though no reference is made to Jane Eyre.

La Razón (Mexico) refers to Henry Hitchings's book How to Really Talk About Books You Haven't Read (aka Who's Afraid of Jane Austen?: How to Really Talk About Books You Haven't Read).
Saber de libros sin leer, de Henry Hitchings, es menos original y no tan divertido como el libro de Bayard, pero tiene lo suyo. Hitchings advierte que “la gente suele ser poco sincera en lo que respecta a sus hábitos de lectura”. Y asegura que de una “lectora en serio”, por ejemplo, se da por hecho que haya leído Jane Eyre, de Charlotte Brontë, y Orgullo y prejuicio, de Jane Austen (dos clásicos de la gran literatura escrita por mujeres), pero no porque ella lo haya dicho, y repetido en todo momento, sino porque nunca ha dicho lo contrario. Y, probablemente, los ha leído, pero también, probablemente, sólo haya visto las películas, por cierto, en-can-ta-do-ras. (Juan Domingo Argüelles) (Translation)
