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
When and English gentleman named Lockwood takes up residence at the country home of Thrushcross Grange, he finds himself drawn into the lives of the Earnshaw and Linton families, shaped through two generations by the unrealized love between Catherine Earnshaw and the adopted commoner Heathcliffe. Upon its release, Wuthering Heights was often criticized for its vivid depictions of human cruelty and imperfection, but it has come to be recognized as a monumental work of English literature.
