Forty years after she released her seminal hit Wuthering Heights, inspired by Emily Bronte’s novel, Kate Bush is producing some rare public work by adding to a monument to the Bronte sisters on the Yorkshire moors.
Bush has written an inscription for a stone that will be placed near the Brontes’ home, she said being asked to pen a passage about Emily was “an honour and, in a way, a chance to say thank you to her”.
In a statement, Bush said, “I am delighted to be involved in this project. Each sister being remembered by a stone in the enigmatic landscape where they lived and worked is a striking idea.” She continued, “Emily only wrote the one novel—an extraordinary work of art that has truly left its mark. To be asked to write a piece for Emily’s stone is an honour and, in a way, a chance to say thank you to her.”
