Wuthering Heights (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
Wuthering Heights (1847) by Emily Bront is considered to be one of the great classic novels of literature in the English language.
A gothic story of obsessive, cruel love, of terrifying "soul mates" Catherine and Heathcliff who destroy each other with unresolved passion, the novel is distinctive for its complex structure, told in circular flashback. The mood and psychological tension is mesmerizing, and the atmosphere of the supernatural permeates this dark, unforgettable work.
