You have successfully survived another Monday, so let’s celebrate your accomplishment with another day of Gothic Literature Month. Today, we praise the work of Emily Bronte and her novel “Wuthering Heights.” If you need to read this right now but there’s not a copy in sight, Project Gutenberg has free ebooks in different forms: “Project Gutenberg: Wuthering Heights.”
For an extended bio, genealogy and a time line of Bronte’s life, check out The Reader’s Guide to Wuthering Heights: “Emily Jane Bronte.”
Intelligence Squared is host to a literary battle between Bronte and Jane Austen. The performance is available in video and podcast form: “Jane Austen vs Emily Bronte: The Queens of English Literature Debate, with actors Dominic West, Sam West, Mariah Gale and Eleanor Tomlinson.”
University of Pennsylvania hosts a digital collection dedicated as A Celebration of Women Writers, which offers the collection of poems published by the Bronte sisters under their male pseudonyms: “Proems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell.”
And finally, we have a feature from Paste regarding death metal’s draw to Bronte: “Emily Bronte: Death Metal Darling.” If you only read on thing today, I strongly suggest this article.
