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 multivoice Emily Bronte

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.

Superb recording of the Emily Bronte masterpiece  Sep 25, 2008
Would you like to become acquainted with one of the greatest love stories of all time? Did you know there is an occidental answer to Dream of the Red Chamber, with that same kind of passion so intense it borders on hatred and madness? Would you like to hear a live performance of a really FUNNY novel, with slyly ironic or blackly comical vignettes every few pages? Or perhaps you're in the mood for a quintessentially gothic tale, an epic ghost story spanning generations? Wuthering Heights is all of these things and more. (For instance, one of its most remarkable features, instantly lost in any so-called "film version," is its wonderfully intricate narrative structure, quite on a par with that of a Joseph Conrad novel such as Lord Jim or Victory.)
Now, who on earth could read WH properly so that all those nuances and overtones might be brought together in a single performance? Michael Page and Laural Merlington, that's who! These two are perfectly attuned to all the qualities that make WH a masterpiece.
(And no, there is no technical flaw to worry about. That reviewer was confused by the exotic settings required for playing back the audio cassette version, I suspect, although ostensibly she was reviewing the CD version, and that made the negative remark doubly weird, a true non sequitur. I've owned the audio cassette version for several years, and I just recently bought the CD version too. Either way, the recording is a treasure. If you love literature, buy it! If you're not sure what literature is all about, buy it! Then you'll see.)
 
There Is Nothing Wrong With This Audio Recording!  Dec 23, 2005
Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights is a classic novel from Charlotte Bronte and this unabridged audio recording is highly recommended to people who read the book and loved it and are interested in hearing the book being read. By the way, I strongly suspect that Anne, the previous reviewer who made the speed reading comment about this bookcassette audio recording from Brlliance Audio lisened to this recording without using the adapter or adjusting the balance on her balance control knob on her tape player. If listening to this on a walkman style tape player you need the adapter and you need to read the instructions before using it and if you are listening on a stereo or car tape deck with balance control knob then you need to follow the instructions on how to listen to it that way. If you follow the instructions you will find that the audio recording is good and sounds normal and not at all like the Chipmunks. While reading reviews for an audio recording of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre I noticed she made the same speed reading comments and I felt that I should point out that she might have listened to the audio recordings either without the head phone adapter on her portable tape player or without adjusting volume control on her stereo.
 
The Previous Reviewer Didn't Listen To It Correctly!  Dec 21, 2005

Speed Reading Ruins Classic  Nov 10, 2004
The story is the same and just as wonderful as it has always been. I bought the CD version for a car trip, and was extremely disappointed in the narration. It was read rapidly, and without pause. I found that, even though I know the story well, I could hardly keep up! I have several other books on CD, and have not had this problem. Too bad... it was a waste of money, and a long boring car trip!
 
The Gothic Romance Makes A Perfect Valentine Gift  Feb 14, 2003
Emily Bronte, one of the Bronte sisters, (the most famous being Charlotte, who wrote Jane Eyre) wrote a classic Gothic romance, chalk-full of the emotions and pathos that a tragic romance encompasses. As a literary work, it is well written and at paar with Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. This audio book, narrated finely, with a delightful box cover, makes a striking Valentines day gift for women. The story is set in the lush, dark moors of northern England, and centers around a wealthy family and the doomed romance of Catherine and Heathcliff. Catherine comes from a well-to-do family, set in their ways, and all of her societal expectations are heavy on her shoulders. She falls in love with Heathcliff, a deep, spiritual, soulful love, but unfortunately one that could not be consummated. Heathcliff was taken into Catherine's family as an orphan. Heathcliff and Catherine's love, described in the most romantic of terms, is so strong that there is one scene in which Catherine calls out to him in despair, when she is married to another man for his status and convenient position as a powerful family friend, and Heathcliff is able to hear her from his distant stance.

The novel is Gothic, although there is no supernatural going-ons and the usual horror that can be associated with Gothic novels. It is a novel full of the dark despair and tragedy of two lovers who can not be together. The character of Heathcliff, in particular, cannot be considered heroic. He is brooding, he is dark, he vows revenge against those who have taken Catherine from him. Likewise, Catherine cannot fulfill the profile of an innocent, hopelessly romantic girl. She is instead, a vain, egotistical and bourgeois materialist, marrying a man for his money and not for his love. But although the immediate situation that occurs with Heathcliff and Catherine, Heathcliff's subsequent vendetta and extraction of revenge are the darkest aspects, the promising and more idealistic love transpires between their children (eventhough they are children of other parents). With stunning narration and a classic feel to the whole thing, this makes a perfect gift on the day that celebrates romance and true love- Valentine's Day.
