Clare Twomey: Wuthering Heights – a manuscript

6th Apr 2017 - 31st Dec 2017

Home » Exhibitions » Clare Twomey: Wuthering Heights – a manuscript

Artist Clare Twomey invites visitors to the Bronte Parsonage Museum to create a handwritten version of Wuthering Heights.

The original manuscript for Emily’s famous novel no longer survives, but in this new commission for the Bronte Parsonage Museum, over ten thousand visitors will be invited to copy one sentence of the novel into a handmade book to be exhibited during 2018, Emily Bronte’s bicentenary year.

Each participant will be gifted a pencil, created by the artist, as a tool for further writing. Clare Twomey hopes that the act of sitting and writing at a table in the house where Emily wrote her novel will build understanding of Emily and her determination to create Wuthering Heights.
