Fun with Books @ Urban Solace
Rediscover the Classics with Christina Daniels
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Theatrical readings of the book by Jatin Prabhu
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Every Saturday, we will use exciting activities, audio visual clips, and readings to take our participants back to the classics. We will return to the era in which the book was written, understand the author, and unlock the plot.

Each of our classics are chosen from different cultures to introduce our participants to world literature.

We encourage children to read an abridged version of the book before each session. But a knowledge of the book is NOT essential to participate. We will get your child to have fun with the world of books, whether they have read the book or not.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë's only novel, was published in 1847 under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell". It was written between October 1845 and June 1846. Wuthering Heights and Anne Brontë's Agnes Grey were accepted by publisher Thomas Newby before the success of their sister Charlotte's novel Jane Eyre. After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in 1850.

Although Wuthering Heights is now a classic of English literature, contemporaneous reviews were deeply polarised; it was controversial because of its unusually stark depiction of mental and physical cruelty, and it challenged strict Victorian ideals regarding religious hypocrisy, morality, social classes and gender inequality. The English poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti, although an admirer of the book, referred to it as "A fiend of a book an incredible monster [...] The action is laid in hell, only it seems places and people have English names there."
Wuthering Heights contains elements of gothic fiction, and another significant aspect is the moorland setting. The novel has inspired adaptations, including film, radio and television dramatisations, a musical, a ballet, operas, and a song by Kate Bush.
