Bronte News

Jane Eyre: The Musical is playing in Washington state: "Jane Eyre: The Musical": Edmonds Homeschool Resource Center presents a musical version of the classic Charlotte Bronte novel, 7 p.m. May 19 and 20, 2 p.m. May 20 and 21, $4. 23200 100th Ave. W., Edmonds; 425-670-7840.

One of the earliest known manuscripts by Charlotte Brontë will be on display at the Bronte Parsonage Museum, and also featured on a BBC programme displaying 'quirky' items from British museums. Richard Wilcox from the Brontë Society Gazette has much more to say about the piece, on his blog- the Brontë Parsonage E-Magazine Blog. There is also a post about Clare Boyland, author of Emma Brown.

The Haworth Arts Festival will feature an outdoor screening of Wuthering Heights (and some... Bulgarian singing and Flamenco dancing!). For more infomation contact www.haworthartsgroup.co.uk or by phoning 01535 642329.

Wuthering Heights gets (very briefly) compared with Moulin Rouge. In fact, the comparison amount to the 'device' of having one lover die, leaving the other alone and doomed to a life of emptiness without that person who remains crystallized in the mind as the romantic ideal..'

The Bronte Project is reviewed again. This time there is a little more information about its plot but also some extremely vague statements that leave some awkward impressions.
