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 Emily Bront 's only novel. It was first published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, and a posthumous second edition was edited by her sister Charlotte. The name of the novel comes from the Yorkshire manor on the moors on which the story centres (as an adjective, wuthering is a Yorkshire word referring to turbulent weather). The narrative tells the tale of the all-encompassing and passionate, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and many around them. Emily Jane Bront (July 30, 1818 - December 19, 1848) was a British novelist and poet, now best remembered for her only novel Wuthering Heights, a classic of English literature. Emily was the second oldest of the three Bront sisters, being younger than Charlotte and older than Anne. She published under the masculine pen name Ellis Bell.
