Books for Valentine's Day

Postby saffron » Tue Feb 14, 2017 7:48 pm

There seem to be some odd choices in this article. I am surprised how few books have been chosen which were originally written in Spanish. I am surprised at the Spanish title for Wuthering
Heights though it is a reasonable translation. Have you read many of them?

Let me check the shelves in my private library for my collection of Romance Novels. I know it is right alongside my collection of Chick Flicks. Hmm. I can't seem to find any. :shrug:

I never knew what Wuthering meant in that title. Thank you for piquing my curiosity.

Wuthering means blustery and turbulent, and often describes the fierce, noisy winds that blow across the moors. This word was used in northern England, where the novel by Emily Bronte Wuthering Heights was set.


Cumbres Borrascosas

borrascoso (a)
1. Stormy, boisterous, gusty, tempestuous.


In the feminine, plural that adjective almost looks like a compound noun...borras cosas (envision sandstorms/dust storms burying things).

I did the same as you Q, before I posted. Wuthering Heights was the name of a property and I had just assumed it was a place name. I looked up the Spanish words then decided to find out if 'Wuthering' had a meaning. It is probably used in Yorkshire, but I have never used it!
