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


Published in 1847, WUTHERING HEIGHTS was not well received by the reading public, many of whom condemned it as sordid, vulgar, and unnatural--and author Emily Bronte went to her grave in 1848 believing that her only novel was a failure. It was not until 1850, when WUTHERING HEIGHTS received a second printing with an introduction by Emily's sister Charlotte, that it attracted a wide readership. And from that point the reputation of the book has never looked back. Today it is widely recognized as one of the great novels of English literature.
