Item Description...
Overview
Wuthering Heights is the story of love turning on itself and of the violence and misery that result from thwarted passion. A book of immense power, it is filled with the raw beauty of the moors and a deep compassion for the conflicting destinies of men and women. Emily Bronte lived out her life in the wilderness of the moors and died a year after her extraordinary novel was published. The story of stubborn Cathy and wild-as-the-wind Heathcliff has been a favorite since its original publication in 1848. The novel begins with Lockwood, a tenant, taking up residence close to Wuthering Heights. His landlord, Mr. Heathcliff, proves to be surly, unfriendly and rude. When Lockwood discovers a mildewed book with the names Catherine Earnshaw, Catherine Heathcliff and Catherine Linton scratched on its cover he begins to read and starts on a strange tale that proves irresistible . . .

More About Emily Bronte, Michael Page & Laural Merlington

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Emily Jane Bronte was the most solitary member of a unique, tightly-knit, English provincial family. Born in 1818, she shared the parsonage of the town of Haworth, Yorkshire, with her older sister, Charlotte, her brother, Branwell, her younger sister, Anne, and her father, The Reverend Patrick Bronte. All five were poets and writers; all but Branwell would publish at least one book.

Fantasy was the Bronte children's one relief from the rigors of religion and the bleakness of life in an impoverished region. They invented a series of imaginary kingdoms and constructed a whole library of journals, stories, poems, and plays around their inhabitants. Emily's special province was a kingdom she called Gondal, whose romantic heroes and exiles owed much to the poems of Byron.

Brief stays at several boarding schools were the sum of her experiences outside Haworth until 1842, when she entered a school in Brussels with her sister Charlotte. After a year of study and teaching there, they felt qualified to announce the opening of a school in their own home, but could not attract a single pupil.

In 1845 Charlotte Bronte came across a manuscript volume of her sister's poems. She knew at once, she later wrote, that they were "not at all like poetry women generally write...they had a peculiar music-wild, melancholy, and elevating." At her sister's urging, Emily's poems, along with Anne's and Charlotte's, were published pseudonymously in 1846. An almost complete silence greeted this volume, but the three sisters, buoyed by the fact of publication, immediately began to write novels. Emily's effort was Wuthering Heights; appearing in 1847 it was treated at first as a lesser work by Charlotte, whose Jane Eyre had already been published to great acclaim. Emily Bronte's name did not emerge from behind her pseudonym of Ellis Bell until the second edition of her novel appeared in 1850.

In the meantime, tragedy had struck the Bronte family. In September of 1848 Branwell had succumbed to a life of dissipation. By December, after a brief illness, Emily too was dead; her sister Anne would die the next year. Wuthering Heights, Emily's only novel, was just beginning to be understood as the wild and singular work of genius that it is. "Stronger than a man," wrote Charlotte, "Simpler than a child, her nature stood alone."

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

Interesting Relationships  Aug 6, 2008
This novel is far from what I expected.

I had listened to many of my friends judge Cathy and Heathcliff very harshly, and I went into the book expecting to explore the evilness of human nature. Instead, I found that Bronte broke barriers by producing two very real characters.

Cathy and Heathcliff's story explores the consequences to the character's decisions. Bronte does not gloss over the reasons for the decisions (money, greed, breeding, retaliation, etc), but those reasons play a minimal role. Instead, she chooses to show how a human reacts to a good/bad decision, and when life doesn't go his or her way.

My suggestion for reading Wuthering Heights is to place yourself in Cathy and Heathcliff's shoes and figure out if there was another choice for their behavior.
 
This Heathcliff Is No Pussy!  Mar 11, 2008
(Like the curmudgeonly CAT in the COMIC...get it?)

Great old-style classic novel. One of Henry Miller's favorites; that's what attracted me to it.

I liked the style of the narrative, largely told through the reminiscences of the housekeeper Nelly. This is one dysfunctional family!

Like many novels from this period it's all about the interpersonal relationships; there isn't anything external happening to anyone here of any particular consequence. But the masterful storytelling and imaginings of the authoress really do make this a worthwhile and rewarding literary journey.

Read it! Classics rule!
 
A great read.   Feb 25, 2008
Although some of the plot elements seem preposterous today the story remains a great read. What a love story! A great tale of people sometimes setting in motion awful events due to their desire to do what they see as right in their own eyes. Recommended. Well-written.
 
Interesting but tedious.  Jan 3, 2008
Heathcliff is a fierce, pitiless, wolfish man inside and out. His character makes this an interesting story. But it was a little tedious to read. Sexual language: none. Number of sex scenes: none. Setting about 1775 to 1805 England. Published about 1847. Genre: obsessive historical romance.
 
Free SF Reader  Sep 3, 2007
Set on the moors, it is a pity that the Hound of the Baskervilles didn't get 'em. This would have saved a lot of characters a lot of grief. An orphan is taken in, and the problems start there as he grows up, has his own problems and inflicts them on others. The great detective has something to say about such places : "But look at these lonely houses, each in its own fields, filled for the most part with poor ignorant folk who know little of the law. Think of the deeds of hellish cruelty, the hidden wickedness which may go on, year in, year out, in such places, and none the wiser. Had this lady who appeals to us for help gone to live in Winchester, I should never have had a fear for her. It is the five miles of country which makes the danger."
