A Thursday Talk at the Brontë Parsonage Museum

*This event has been postponed due to bad weather. Alternatively, you can book onto the online event (Thursday 8 February, 7:30pm) here. We're sorry for any incovenience.*

This talk will consider Emily Brontë’s literary relationship with the figure of the vampire, tracing the influence of German literature upon her understanding and usage of the vampire figure in Wuthering Heights, and the impact of such on contemporary vampire fiction.

Stephenie Meyer’s Eclipse, the third instalment in her vampire series Twilight draws inspiration from Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, and this talk will consider the extent to which Emily Brontë plays a crucial role in the legacy of vampire fiction from the nineteenth century to the present day.
Date: Thursday 8 February, 2pm
Venue: Brontë Event Space at the Old School Room
Free with entry to the Museum and for residents in BD20, BD21 and BD22. No need to book.
