More on Wuthering Heights

Emily Bronte

Emily Bronte was born on 30 July 1818 and died in 1848 – just a year after her book Wuthering Heights was published.

She died in the place she’d lived since the age of two, Haworth Parsonage in Yorkshire England. She was just 30 years old.

But despite her young age and only publishing one book, her cult has grown ever since and it seems the mythology around her as grown too.

Australian author Sandra Leigh Price is an Emily Bronte acolyte and exposes some of the myths about Emily Bronte’s life.
