Wuthering Heights: Emily Bronte 's Classic Masterpiece - Complete Original Text (Paperback)
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.— laurie
Emily Bronte's only novel appeared to mixed reviews in 1847, a year before her death at the age of thirty. In the relationship of Cathy and Heathcliff, and in the wild, bleak Yorkshire Moors of its setting, Wuthering Heights creates a world of its own, conceived with a disregard for convention, an instinct for poetry and for the dark depths of human psychology that make it one of the greatest novels of passion ever written.
