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 the Norton Critical Edition of Wuthering Heights incorporates significant new materials to help the reader toward a heightened understanding of the text. Featured are two new essays, as well as a revised section on Emily Bronte's hand-corrected copy of the book.

The editor, in preparing the text offered here, returned to the original first edition as a basis. This had contained many printer's errors, but Charlotte Bronte's editing assumed privileges that now seem unwarranted. In his careful collation of the texts, Professor Sale provided the first responsible edition of Wuthering Heights to be made available to present-day readers. The edition is annotated; a specil feature is the glossary of words in the Yorkshire dialect.

The critical materials following the text include, first of all, a sampling of contemporary notices; these are followed by essays and articles that present the prevailing critical opinions of our century. The critical reviews are from the Palladium, the Examiner, the Britannia, the North American Review, and the Leader; the essays are by Charles Percy Sanger, David Cewcil, Mary Visick, John K. Mathison, Carl R. Woodrig, and Mark Schoerer. Essays new to this editiona re by Q. D. Leavis, Inga-Stina Ewbank, and Professore Sale.

The bibliography has been expanded and thoroughly updated.
