A columnist of the Deccan Herald (India) vindicates being petite:
But before consuming too much and growing to this unsustainable size, humanity had been more compact, including the grandest historical characters. Isaac Newton, Charlotte Brontë, Genghis Khan. (Shreya Sen-Handley)
The Independent (Ireland) lists some notable musical comebacks. Talking about Kate Bush:
Kate Bush was just 19 when she scored a UK number one with Wuthering Heights — a stunningly original song inspired by the Brontë novel and one of the strangest to ever top the charts. (John Meagher)
Today's word at the Martinsville Bulletin is moors :
TODAY‘S WORD is moors. Example: “Out on the wily, windy moors / We’d roll and fall in green.” (Source: Kate Bush, “Wuthering Heights”)
FRIDAY’S WORD was pine. It means to yearn intensely and persistently, especially for something unattainable. Example: “I pine a lot—I find the lot—Falls through without you” (Source: “Wuthering Heights”) (The Stroller)
Europa Sur (Spain) talks about the bottomless pits of the reality shows:
Ni una Emily Brontë dada al gin, agobiada por las necesidades económicas y escarmentada por el tibio recibimiento de su Wuthering Heights (Cumbres borrascosas) que hubiera decidido a la desesperada escribir un folletín desmelenado, una novela gótica enloquecida, un melodrama descarrilado que se llamara Dandruff Heights (Cumbres casposas) y le procurara éxito y dinero gracias a la acumulación de truculencias, situaciones inverosímiles y desmadres emocionales, lograría alcanzar los extremos folletinescos que el reality show o telerrealidad está alcanzando en el paroxismo de lo que tal vez sea el inicio de su declive. (Carlos Colón) (Translation)
Vanity Fair (Italy) interviews the playwright and novelist Yasmina Reza:
Stefania Saltalamacchia: Il suo primo amore letterario?
Y.R.: «Cime tempestose, Emily Brontë». (Translation)
