Query: Bronte's influence (fwd)
From: Anthony Robinson <>

I think this question, or one like it has come up on this list before, so if
I'm being redundant, forgive me, but is there any evidence that VN knew and
had read the work of Emily and Charlotte Bronte? Has any scholarly
research been done on this possibility, as well as parallels existing
between the world of Wuthering Heights and that of Lolita and Despair?

Any help on anything remotely related to the above topic would be greatly
