Mumford on the Moors

Despite the fact that I could never survive alone in the wild and that I have a true appreciation for clean bathrooms and hygiene, I’m pretty sure I was born in the wrong era. Maybe it was the fact that I had Anne of Green Gables on repeat as an 8 year old and thought that big Victorian hair and puffed sleeves were attractive.  Then, I hit high schol and got introduced to the deceptively intriguing and dark worlds of Gothic English literature.  Thanks to the reading list in my sophmore English Honors class, I have a love for literary classics that were products of the eery marriage between gothic fiction and romanticism.

Wuthering Heights (1939 film starring Laurence Olivier & Merle Oberon)

Pair all of that with one of my favorite bands and you’ve got a winner.  Check out the trailer to director Andrea Arnold’s adaptation of Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights.
