Staff Reviews


Set in the north of England on the wild moors and craggy hillsides of Yorkshire,  it has always been touted as a romance, but can surely be seen as a story of passionate revenge.  Catherine and  Heathcliff have a relationship that is ever-suffering. Their dark pull toward each other is fierce and somewhat tormented.  It depicts what in humans can not always be controlled.

This book  is definitely my favorite classic of all time!  I cherish it differently every time I read it.

Description


Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.
