Emily Bronte - LIFE STORIES
 
 
7/30/1818     Emily Bronte: "Peculiar Music"
On this day in 1818, Emily Bronte was born in Thornton, Yorkshire. Most accounts portray Emily as the brightest, most intense, and most difficult of the three sisters -- "not a person of demonstrative character," wrote Charlotte, "nor one, on the recesses of whose mind and feelings, even those nearest and dearest to her could, without impunity, intrude unlicensed."
12/19/1848     Emily Bronte: Same and Singular
On this day in 1848 Emily Bronte died at the age of thirty. Of all the death and drama in the Bronte household over the surrounding eight months -- events which now stand as famous and poignant as any in the Bronte novels -- none seems to impress or import more than Emily's. Her "powerful and peculiar" character, said Charlotte, inspired "an anguish of wonder and love."

"Despite the reasons for which Wuthering Heights was not valued in its own time, it has since been recognized as a work of extraordinary talent, elegance, and genius. One writer, Joyce Carol Oates, best summed up its power by calling Wuthering Heights an 'anomaly, a sport, a freak in its own time, it can be seen by us, in ours, as brilliantly of that time – and contemporaneous with our own.'"
