Daily Mail jokes that Charlotte Brontë might be accused of 'cultural appropriation' because she owned a pair of moccasins.

The statue is in the back garden so hopefully it will be safe ;)

US News recommends Jane Eyre for your 'ACT, SAT Summer Reading List'.
"Jane Eyre," a classic novel by Charlotte Brontë, is a great starting point.

Thus, this work allows students to prepare for two key types of ACT and SAT reading questions: understanding vocabulary in context and recalling details. (Tiffany Sorensen)

MACG on the song Beautiful Liar by VIXX:
Beautiful Liar” is a K-pop gothic story. And no, we’re not talking modern goth. The literary Gothic stories such as “Wuthering Heights” or “Frankenstein.” The symbolism alone is enough to make my head spin, but to remember that these are the same guys who gave us “Dynamite“?! It’s mind boggling. (Jess)
