Cover of: Wuthering Heights | Emily Brontë

About the Book

A tale of passion set in the bleak Yorkshire moors in mid 19thC, far from the Victorian uprightness, Wuthering Heights depicts the mutual love of Catherine and Heathcliff till destruction rends the narration; yet cruelty is only to be met with forgiveness in the following generations. Romantic, impassioned and wild, it is also a dark journey in the human soul.

About the Edition

As a convincing, unsentimental account of passionate love, the nineteenth-century novel Wuthering Heights remains a tower landmark virtually unequalled in English literature.

Heathcliff, a savaged, tormented foundling, falls wildly in love with Catherine Earnshaw, the daughter of his benefactor. Violence and misery flow from their thwarted longing for each other, continuing relentlessly and without diminution into the next generation.

With immense power and strength, Ms. Bronte's prose evokes the raw beauty of the moors and reveals an uncanny understanding of the terrible truths about men and women. The remarkable power of this perception becomes even more extraordinary in light of the fact that it comes from the heart of a frail, inexperienced girl who loved out her lonely life in the moorland wilderness and died a year after this great novel was published.
