The Irish Times on Kate’s literary inspirations as her book is released

Irish Times

Patrick Kelleher writes today in The Irish Times about Kate’s literary inspirations across her body of work:

“Wuthering Heights was just the beginning of a career that has been filled with literary influences. As Bush prepares this week to release a book of lyrics, called How To Be Invisible, now is a fitting time to reflect on the songs throughout her illustrious career that have been influenced by literature….” Emily Brontë, Peter Pan, Shakespeare, Henry James, Stephen King, Peter Reich, Alfred Tennyson, James Joyce and Hans Christian Andersen are all discussed.  Kelleher concludes:  “As Bush prepares to release a book of lyrics, and has just released remastered versions of all of her albums on CD and vinyl for the first time, there could be more literary-inspired Bush music on the horizon.” Read the full article here.
