Item Description...
Overview
Wuthering Heights is one of the classic novels of nineteenth century romanticism. As a major work of modern literature it retains its controversial status. What was Emily Bront's intention? Were her intentions iconoclastic? Were they feminist? Were they Christian or post-Christian? Who are the heroes and the villains in this dark masterpiece? Are there any heroes? Are there any villains? This critical edition of Emily Bront's classic includes new and controversial critical essays by some of the leading lights in contemporary literary scholarship. The Ignatius Critical Editions represent a tradition-oriented alternative to popular textbook series such as the Norton Critical Editions or Oxford World Classics, and are designed to concentrate on traditional readings of the Classics of world literature. While many modern critical editions have succumbed to the fads of modernism and post-modernism, this series will concentrate on tradition-oriented criticism of these great works. Edited by acclaimed literary biographer, Joseph Pearce, the Ignatius Critical Editions will ensure that traditional moral readings of the works are given prominence, instead of the feminist, or deconstructionist readings that often proliferate in other series of 'critical editions'. As such, they represent a genuine extension of consumer-choice, enabling educators, students and lovers of good literature to buy editions of classic literary works without having to 'buy into' the ideologies of secular fundamentalism. The series is ideal for anyone wishing to understand great works of western civilization, enabling the modern reader to enjoy these classics in the company of some of the finest literature professors alive today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Go for the traditional and comprehensive Norton instead  Sep 11, 2008
The Ignatius Critical Editions claims to "represent a tradition-oriented alternative to popular textbook series such as the Norton Critical Editions or Oxford World Classics, and are designed to concentrate on traditional readings of the Classics of world literature."

Yet what can in fact be a more traditional, more scholarly, and less popular textbook than Wuthering Heights (Norton Critical Editions) or Wuthering Heights: Authoritative Text, Backgrounds, Criticism (Norton Critical Editions) as well as the Wuthering Heights (Oxford World's Classics). The list of such respected, traditional and academic considerations of the text must also include Emily Bronte: Wuthering Heights (Penguin Critical Studies) Twentieth Century Interpretations of Wuthering Heights: A Collection of Critical Essays (20th Century Interpretations) and even the dreaded (by this publisher) Wuthering Heights (Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations).

This product page nebulously accuses these revered and much referenced works as somehow masters of deceit to confuse and to lose the freshman mind: "Whereas many modern critical editions have succumbed to the fads of modernism and post-modernism, this series will concentrate on tradition-oriented criticism of these great works." Yet what could be more traditional than the editions mentioned aforehand?

This "Ignatius" edition promises to "ensure that traditional moral readings of the works are given prominence, instead of the feminist, or deconstructionist readings that often proliferate in other series of 'critical editions'." And yet this product page itself poses the unanswered questions: "What was Emily Brontë's intention? Were her intentions iconoclastic? Were they feminist? Were they Christian or post-Christian?" Since this product description proscribes a feminist reading of this proto-feminist writer, that question is closed. And may we please have a working definition of the neologism "deconstructionist, and examples of where such criticism may be found? Certainly not in the "popular textbook series" of Norton and Oxford! What does this publisher mean by post-Christian? Something like Father Thomas Merton's borrowing of CS Lewis's phrase to entitle his Peace In The Post-christian Era?

Does the writer of this product page really not realize the hallowed history of Oxford University?

The coup de grace of this overheated sales pitch reads: "As such, they represent a genuine extension of consumer-choice, enabling educators, students and lovers of good literature to buy editions of classic literary works without having to 'buy into' the ideologies of secular fundamentalism." Let us again define your terms! What in the world is meant here? And do the critical essays truly live up to this boast? We find not a clue in the product description, not even an essayist's name.

Better we turn to their consideration of this text itself: "Wuthering Heights is one of the classic novels of nineteenth century romanticism. As a major work of modern literature it retains its controversial status." So, something written in the eighteen hundreds may be considered "a major work of modern literature" yet not receive a critical reading which has "succumbed to the fad of modernism"?

Such questions remain unanswered and unsurprisingly this product description grants us no indication of the writers of the "new and controversial critical essays." Although we read they are "some of the leading lights in contemporary literary scholarship" we are not permitted to know their names. Yet, judging from the other books in this series, we can guess their leading lights do not shine that bright. For example, in this serie's "critical edition" of Mary Shelley's Modern Prometheus, the essays are written by "leading lights" from such esteemed institutions as the Open University, Christendom College, Ave Maria in Naples Florida, the Southern Catholic College; the author's names nearly unknown. The one recognized institute of higher education, Notre Dame, has her contribution poorly written by an architectural grad student, who concludes Pygmalion is a better and more moral myth because her creator prays (albeit to Venus) and his creation is not
"ugly" and he marries his creation. Leading lights indeed!

Unless and until this product page can answer its own questions regarding this text: "What was Emily Brontë's intention? Were her intentions iconoclastic? Were they feminist? Were they Christian or post-Christian? Who are the heroes and the villains in this dark masterpiece? Are there any heroes? Are there any villains?" and can openly identify its leading lights: "This critical edition of Emily Brontë's classic includes new and controversial critical essays by some of the leading lights in contemporary literary scholarship." the "tradition-minded literature professor" does well to stick to the traditional, proven, if unpopular (for being highly academic) textbooks such as the Norton and the Oxford.
