Sex Seen by Women. Wuthering Heights. Then and Now. From the English author Emily Brontë to the current filmmaker Andrea Arnold: love, death, incest and even necrophilia. No nice moments. Only sex in the afterlife.

Then: in 1847, Emily Brontë, under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, published the novel Wuthering Heights, her first and last novel because Emily died soon, aged 30.

The action takes place on a farm at the Yorkshire moors. There, an isolated family survives in harsh conditions, both physical and psychological. What about younger family members? What opportunities do they have to meet people of the opposite sex? It’s almost incest the love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, incest she tries to stop when she marries Edgar Linton… Heathcliff jealousy and revenge will have a destructive effect, also in the all community.

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë is a Gothic novel. The main characters are living among shades and phantoms, in a landscape of terror where God is only another distant problem.

Wuthering Heights has inspired adaptations, including movies, radio or TV dramatizations. Also, a musical by Bernard J. Taylor, a ballet and operas by Bernard Herrmann, Carlisle Floyd, and Frédéric Chaslin. Even a role-playing game, and a song by Kate Bush.

Now: in 2011, the independent British director Andrea Arnold filmed again Wuthering Heithts. Starring by Kaya Scodelario as Catherine and James Howson as Heathcliff. The screenplay, written by Andrea Arnold and Olivia Hetreed, is still more romantic and dark that the text of 1847. From the beginning, lovers know that only death will unite them forever. They want a sexual relationship outside of that harsh world, in the afterlife. It is a fantastic film full of references to nature, birds and animals, life and death. If you have the chance, see this different movie. Not suitable for children but interesting for a reflection.

Love is a force of nature… it’s sex.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
