New Release: A England — To Emily Brontë (Winter 2015)

Collection: A England 2015 Winter, To Emily Brontë

English indie nail polish brand A England has just released their Winter 2015 collection, To Emily Brontë. Wuthering Heights is one of my favorite books of all time, so I’m sure I’ll sucker myself into picking up a few of these!

The five colors are:

  • Heathcliff, a subtle glitter on a black base
  • Cathy, ghostly, eerie white grey holo with an illusory flash of blue
  • Let Me In, dark red berry holo full of depth and passion
  • Wuthering Heights, soft medium grey holo wrapping multiple reflections
  • Spirit of the Moors, bright blu holo revealing at times tiny surprising green lights

Oh, who am I kidding? I want all five!

Not only have I read the book, but I’ve also seen many of the film and TV adaptations of the classic novel:

Wuthering Heights (1939) with Laurence Olivier, Merle Oberon
Entirely classy: Sir Laurence Olivier & the ethereal Merle Oberon in William Wyler’s 1939 version (that’s the same year The Wizard of Oz was released)
Wuthering Heights (1970) with Timothy Dalton, Anna Calder-Marshall
A smoldering Timothy Dalton & Anna Calder-Marshall in the 1970 version…as much as I love Tim, this was not a very good adaptation
Wuthering Heights (1992) with Ralph Fiennes, Juliette Binoche
Ralph Fiennes & Juliette Binoche in the moody 1992 version, with a cameo from Sinéad O’Connor playing the author, Emily Brontë
Wuthering Heights (1998) with Orla Brady
Orly Brady (with an unpictured Robert Cavanagh) in the 1998 version
Wuthering Heights (2009) with Tom Hardy, Charlotte Riley
Tom Hardy (yup, Bane was Heathcliff) & Charlotte Riley in the 2009 version

And I have yet to watch this more recent version, which turns the Heathcliff character from a gypsy into a young black man:

Wuthering Heights (2011) with James Howson, Kaya Scodelario
James Howson & Kaya Scodelario in Andrea Arnold’s 2011 version

Have I missed any worthwhile versions of this doomed love story?

    • Well, it was really just Wuthering Heights, and some poetry. 😀 She wasn’t prolific. I’ve read all the Brontës’ novels and WH is hands down my fave. Gothic romance with a raw, violent quality to it.
