An Australian current affairs magazine with a Brontë-related article:

Romantic love in the dock: Wuthering Heights reconsidered
by Lucy Sullivan
News Weekly, No. 3076, 5 Sep 2020: 14-15

Although on its first publication in 1846, some condemned Wuthering Heights for the violence and brutality of the lives and passions it depicted, in the mid-20th century it was the most acclaimed of the Brontë sisters' novels, and the "love affair" of Catherine and Heathcliff, also, as the most powerful of representations of Romantic Love. The oneness of the souls of lovers and the inevitability of tragedy if they are torn apart is perhaps never more explicitly expressed than by Heathcliff and Catherine.
