Here are some of the remarkable features of "Barnes & Noble Classics": New introductions commissioned from today's top writers and scholars Biographies of the authors Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events Footnotes and endnotes Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work Comments by other famous authors Study questions to challenge the reader's viewpoints and expectations Bibliographies for further reading Indices & Glossaries, when appropriateAll editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. "Barnes & Noble Classics "pulls together a constellation of influences--biographical, historical, and literary--to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. Emily Bronte's only novel, "Wuthering Heights" remains one of literature's most disturbing explorations into the dark side of romantic passion. Heathcliff and Cathy believe they're destined to love each other forever, but when cruelty and snobbery separate them, their untamed emotions literally consume them.
Set amid the wild and stormy Yorkshire moors, "Wuthering Heights," an unpolished and devastating epic of childhood playmates who grow into soul mates, is widely regarded as the most original tale of thwarted desire and heartbreak in the English language.Daphne Merkin is the author of a novel, "Enchantment," which won the Edward Lewis Wallant award for best new work of American-Jewish fiction, and an essay collection, "Dreaming of Hitler," She has written essays and reviews for publications that include "American Scholar," the "New York Times," where she is a regular contributor to the "Book Review," the "Los Angeles Times Book Review," "Elle," and "Vogue,"

More About Emily Bronte & Daphne Merkin

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Emily Jane Bronte was born July 30, 1818, at Thornton in Yorkshire, the fifth of six children of Patrick and Maria Bronte. Both of Emily's parents had literary leanings; her mother published one essay, and her father wrote four books and dabbled in poetry. In 1821, shortly after Emily's third birthday, Maria died of cancer. Maria's sister, Elizabeth, came to live as a housekeeper and was responsible for training the girls in the household arts. Although Emily did spend a few short times away from Haworth, it was her primary residence and the rectory where she resided now serves as a Bronte Museum. Emily's only close friends were her brother Branwell and her sisters Charlotte and Anne.

Emily died of tuberculosis on December 19, 1848, also at the age of thirty, and never knew the great success of her only novel Wuthering Heights, which was published almost exactly a year before her death on December 19, 1848. From the opinions of those who knew her well, Emily emerges as a reserved, courageous woman with a commanding will and manner. In the biographical note to the 1850 edition of Wuthering Heights, Charlotte Bronte attributes to her sister "a secret power and fire that might have informed the brain and kindled the veins of a hero."

Emily Bronte lived in Thornton. Emily Bronte was born in 1818 and died in 1848.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Interesting...  Dec 16, 2007
After reading "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte, I knew I had to read her sister's only novel. Quite an interesting contrast to the love story of "Jane Eyre," but unique and worthwhile nonetheless. A great classic by a 19th century female it!
Bronte wrote in this book  Jul 15, 2007
"I don't know if it be a peculiarity in me, but I am seldom otherwise than happy while watching in the chamber of death, should no frenzied or despairing mourner share the duty with me. I see a repose that neither earth nor hell can break, and I feel an assurance of the endless and shadowless hereafter - the Eternity they have entered - where life is boundless in its duration, and love in its sympathy, and joy in its fulness."

One should become, to some extent, acquainted with the Yorkshire Moors, the 18th century and be fully prepared to realize that Emily Bronte was in love with death, then let her take you there. You can come back--she didn't.
