The Telegraph and Argus features this year's Haworth Beer Festival, which, as usual, will have a Brontë twist.
The festival, which is on from Friday April 27 until Sunday April 29, will be hosted by the Old School Room, in Church Street and is being run by Brontë Bars and Events.
Organiser Kath Thornton said: "We're having a War of the Roses Lancashire versus Yorkshire theme, with some exclusive beers on the rack.
"Goose Eye Brewery is brewing a special festival ale called 'Wuthering' and Bowland Brewery, from Clitheroe, is brewing the other special ale called ‘Heights’.
"As it's Emily Brontë's bicentennial year and, as we've done in previous years, we want to celebrate the great achievements of the Brontës.
"As well as more than 30 ales to sample we have the ever popular Branwell's Gin & Rum Shack." (Miran Rahman)
Daily Mail wonders whether you 'fancy starring in your own Emily Brontë drama' at Broughton Hall, which was seen in Wuthering Heights 1992, has been turned into a rental cottage.
A 16th century stately home that was once used as a location for the 1992 re-make of Emily Brontë's classic novel Wuthering Heights is available to rent for holidaymakers.
The seventeen-bedroom manor house Broughton Hall is located in the picturesque village of the Broughton, just south of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and can be rented for around £7,000 a night.
The breath-taking property sits within 3,000 acres of stunning grounds and is described as a grand and luxurious historic house, offering a 'unique destination.' (Ed Riley)
Mundo TKM (Mexico) recommends Wuthering Heights as one of five books to read if you are broken-hearted.
Cumbres Borrascosas de Emily Brontë
Catherine aprende a cogerle afecto a Heathcliff, un niño que su madre ha traído a casa porque está en desnutrición tras quedarse huérfano. Sin embargo el pequeño no es bien recibido por el padre y hermano mayor de Catherine, quienes lo ven como un inmundo gitano. Los años pasan y Catherine es enviada a estudiar lejos de las Cumbres Borrascosas, luego de que sus padres mueren, mientras que Heathcliff es desterrado de este lugar en donde se enamora de su hermana adoptiva. Cuando Catherine vuelve a las Cumbres, ha cambiado: ahora es una señorita de comportamiento sofisticado gracias  educación que ha recibido. Catherine confiesa que ama, desde pequeña, a Heathcliff , pero ella prefirió casarse con el hijo de los Lintón, una familia burguesa, por su estatus. Esto ofende profundamente a Heathcliff quien herido por el desamor de Catherine decide hacerle la vida imposible. (Translation)
America Magazine on Muriel Spark and what her novels 'can teach us about life'.
Sandy Stranger [a character in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie] is a plotmaker, too, right from the start. As a young girl she is given to elaborate fantasies scripting herself into scenes with the likes of Alan Breck from Stevenson’s Kidnapped, Mr. Rochester from Brontë’s Jane Eyre and Anna Pavlova, the great Russian ballerina. (Robert E. Hosmer, Jr.)
Bustle reviews The Girl Who Never Read Noam Chomsky by Jana Casale.
Maybe she’s Jane Bennet, or Jane Eyre, or Janie Crawford, or Tita de la Garza; Meg March, or Molly Weasley, or Robin Stokes, or Bridget Jones. Quite possibly, she’s Margot from ‘Cat Person’.
Or maybe she’s all of them, and more. (E. Ce Miller)
Malibu Arts Journal reviews the biopic Lou Andreas-Salomé, The Audacity To Be Free.
Protofeminism predates the feminist movement. Women like Lou and Charlotte Brontë, and other such authors, were challenging and critiquing the treatment of women in the US and British society. Their literature pre-sage the 20th century monumental changes like the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920 and the Representation of the People Act in 1928 in Britain. A protofeminist is an early author, thinker or leader who despite cultural norms to the contrary sought equality for women on every level. It is because of women like Lou and Brontë that modern women can say we are feminists. Not that we can long lounge on our laurels today. Everybody can ponder the limp corkscrew and broken balloons of our premature festivities until Monday morning when Cimmerian realism again wags its spindly finger under our noses mocking our lack of this and that. (Kriss Perras)
The Morung Express (India) has an article by Anjan K Behera, Research Scholar at Nagaland University.
I always love listening to my mother narrate stories of her childhood. [...] Although she studied in an Oriya medium school, my mother had read works of Charles Dickens, the Brontës, Rudyard Kipling, R K Narayan, and Ruskin Bond by the time she finished her schooling. These books, she says, helped her imagine new lands, meet new people, and travel to various places, all from the comfort of her home.
Inspired by the collection of short stories Reader, I Married Him (edited by Tracy Chevalier), J.S. Cherfi has written one of her own. Lucy Turns Pages posts about Manga Classics' Jane Eyre. Life of this City Girl posts about Jane Eyre 2011.
