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

"My great thought in living is Heathcliff. If all else perished, and HE remained, I should still continue to be... Nelly, I AM Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure... but as my own being."

Wuthering Heights is the only novel of Emily Brontë, who died a year after its publication at the age of thirty. A brooding Yorkshire tale of love that is stronger than death, it is also a fierce vision of metaphysical passion, in which heaven and hell, nature and society, and dynamic and passive forces are powerfully juxtaposed. Unique, mystical, with a timeless appeal, it has become a classic of English literature.
