This weekend in Brussels:
Brussels Brontë Weekend
21 April 2018

11:00 Talk by Lucasta Miller – The Brontë Myth: Emily Brontë’s legacy

Dr Lucasta Miller is a writer and critic. Her The Bronte Myth (2001) chronicles the history of ‘Brontëmania’ in a fascinating combination of biography, literary criticism and history. It traces the evolution of the public personae of Charlotte and Emily Brontë since the first biography of the family by Elizabeth Gaskell, showing how they have been reinterpreted by each generation and cast as everything from domestic saints to sex-starved hysterics.

14:30 Meet John Sutherland 

John Sutherland is Emeritus Professor of Modern English Literature at University College London. A specialist in Victorian fiction, he is the author of 18 books including the two books of classic fiction puzzles Is Heathcliff a Murderer? and Can Jane Eyre Be Happy? He will chat about his miscellany of Brontë curiosities The Brontësaurus: An A–Z of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë (and Branwell), published in 2016, and take questions.
Venue: Gemeenschapscentrum Op-Weule, rue Saint Lambert 91, 1200 Woluwe Saint Lambert (next to Woluwe Shopping Centre). One talk: Non-members €10, members €5. Two talks: non-members €15, members €7. Registration essential for all events. To register, contact Helen MacEwan
