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

This revision of a widely adopted critical edition presents the 1847 text of Emily Brontë’s British Victorian novel along with critical essays that read Wuthering Heights from four contemporary perspectives: psychoanalytic, Marxist, feminist, and cultural studies. An additional essay demonstrates how several critical perspectives can be combined. In the second edition, two of the five essays are new. The text and essays are complemented by contextual documents and illustrations (new), introductions with bibliographies, and a glossary of critical and theoretrical terms.
