Happy 160th Deathday…

Emily Brontë, you one-novel-writing genius!

She was born in 1818, published Wuthering Heights in 1847, and died in 1848 after getting sick at the funeral of her brother, Branwell.

“After three years of excessive indulgence in alcohol and drugs, Branwell dies on September 24. Emily takes ill at his funeral, refuses all medical aid, and dies on December 19. She is buried beside her brother, mother, and other sisters at Haworth parsonage.”
