Also, I read today that there are going to be new film adaptations of Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, as well as another one based on the Brontës and Angria/Gondal, geared towards young Twilight fans (http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2009/dec/02/twilight-new-bronte-films). What do you think? I'm all for new adaptations but the cast - esp. the actress who's going to play Jane Eyre - look a bit unsuitable to my eyes! Or am I just being old...?
Are they really doing new film adaptations? I think that Mia Wasikowska is too pretty to be Jane!
Re. Juliet Barker, it did start a bit slowly for me because it begins with Patrick's birth and meticulously works it way right through the whole family history, but it's extremely interesting and she dispels a lot of the myths that are floating around about the whole family. Definitely worth a read!
I would have said Mia Wasikowska is too pretty to be Jane, too. That said, films can do a good job of changing actors' appearances.
A brilliant book that should be read by all Brontë fans!
Edited to say: It's being republished, but I have to wait until November 2010!!
Barker's The Brontës: A Life in Letters also sounds interesting. Anyone read it?
I haven't read A Life In Letters, although I would like to.
I've also got A Life in Letters ready on the shelf for when I finish.
