Text (application/pdf)


This study is an exploration of the relationship among a body of modern texts relating to Branwell, Charlotte and Emily Bronte and to Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre. These texts and the more fluid "Bronte legend" are examined as hypotext for Heathcliff (Jeffrey Caine), Heathcliff: The Return to Wuthering Heights (Lin Haire-Sargeant) and Return to Wuthering Heights (Anna L'Estrange). The modern texts are interrogated for their consistency and period authenticity as readings for their originals and as discourse on the sources of the Bronte inspiration, including the supposed role of Branwell as prototype for "author" and as a model for Heathcliff.
