"I didn't want to make a portrait of Emily Brontë, but rather an evocation of the power of the landscape in her novel Wuthering Heights. ... Emily Brontë advanced literature at the same time as she was writing."
Sister of Charlotte and Anne Brontë and a member of the most famous siblings in 19th century British literature, Emily spent most of her short life in a rectory in Haworth, Yorkshire. Her only novel, Wuthering Heights, which she published under a male pseudonym, is a classic of English literature.
