A couple of not-so-academic books also bring some Emily to the bookstores this December.

Quotable Women. A Celebration
Running Press Book Publishers. Courage Books.

Our new line of lavish gift books combines beautiful design and uplifting texts in a new, unique Courage format. This original series features enduring themes that are perfect for sharing with friends and family. From the irreverent to the inspirational, QUOTABLE WOMEN is a lively sampling of wit and wisdom from some of the world's most eloquent female minds (...) Here you will find Oprah Winfrey on character, Anais Nin on passion, Maya Angelou on creativity, Emily Brontë on dreams, and Mother Teresa on the beauty of the soul. Gloriously illustrated in full colour with inspiring and powerful images from a wide range of artists, this is a gift book to treasure and to give.

Emily Brontë on dreams? Can you imagine what quote is that?
"I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind" (from Wuthering Heights, of course).


Be Incredible Sexy. Saucy Secrets to Make you Sizzle.

Erm... and what's the reason why we are talking about this book? This one:
Chapter 7: "Literal appeal. A look at the sexiest heroes and heroines from literature. Heathcliff, Rupert Campbell-Black, what did they have that others do not. The sexiest moments in literature".

  1. Just to draw this back to the academic ... I read a thesis where the poems of Anne and Emily Bronte were discussed. Its particular focus was children and dreams. Emily had a very different attitude to dreams as it was expressed in the poems published in 1846.

    Here it is: Dungeon and Dreams by Michelle Patricia Beissel.
