Description

Introduction and Notes by John S. Whitley, University of Sussex.

Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries.

The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.

A Dark Love Story
By: Dine Rostianti

After reading a summary of this novel, I thought that Wuthering Heights is an ordinary story about love, heartbreak and revenge, from a third person point of view. However, it turns out Emily Bronte presented this story in the form of a mysterious flashback through first person point of view, who interacted intimately with Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw for years.

The story intrigues the readers from the beginning. Who is Heathcliff? What happened to Catherine Earnshaw? Are Catherine Earnshaw, Catherine Linton and Catherine Heathcliff the same people? What would happen to that evil-hearted Heathcliff? What was the fate of Earnshaw's and Linton's family who were targeted by Heathcliff's revenge? These questions attract readers to keep up until the end of the story.
