Foaming at the mouth, marrying someone you don't love, wow View all 38 comments. But this is a story set in , about a man named Mr. Lockwood, staying the night at Wuthering Heights.
He meets a man named Heathcliff, who seems absolutely miserable, and he meets a housekeeper named Ellen Dean who will eventually help us figure out why Heathcliff is so miserable.
Oh, and when Lockwood goes to sleep that night, he is awoken by a ghost! He then tells Ellen this, and she promptly throws us back into a flashback, where she becomes the new narrator, and we get to see what went down at Wuthering Heights many years ago.
Wuthering Heights , at its black heart, is a story all about abuse, and cycles of abuse, and how abuse can impact so many hearts and so many generations repeatedly.
Abuse and cruelty truly breed violence, and Heathcliff and everyone he has been forced to interact with just showcase that theme over and over.
Heathcliff was orphaned and taken in, but everyone reminds him that he constantly is an outsider. But this story focuses on him and the three young people he grew up alongside of, and they are all shitty in their own ways.
And we eventually get to see their children who you guessed it are shitty, too! Again, cycles of abandonment and abuse is truly heartbreaking in every aspect.
Also, the atmosphere was phenomenal, and the Yorkshire moors truly set a beautiful stage for this dark tale. The things that those sister, and their entire family, had to go through.
Seriously, I have so much love and respect in my heart for these three sisters, originally writing their dark tales under male pseudonyms, who will now never be forgotten.
Also, I had the biggest giggle while reading about someone throwing hot applesauce at someone else, because like, just imagine that.
Cathy and Heathcliff, a love story? At the beginning of our narrative Mr. Lockwood a tenant of Thrushcross Grange, visits his landlord Mr.
Heathcliff at Wuthering Heights, four long miles away across the cold, eerie, moors, people back then walked a great distance they had few options without much complaining, troubled Lockwood wants to get away from society he came to the right place.
The setting is northern England , in the Yorkshire Moors a vast, remote, desolate and gloomy grassland beau Cathy and Heathcliff, a love story?
The setting is northern England , in the Yorkshire Moors a vast, remote, desolate and gloomy grassland beautiful and ugly at the same time, a haunting locale.
Lockwood is the only person who likes Heathcliff " a capital fellow" in the area, he sees something no one else does on his mournful face, sadness maybe even regret like himself?
Later he learns the story of his landlord's tragic life, through Mrs. Nelly Dean his servant at Thrushcross Grange for three generations , she tells him about the life of Heathcliff found in the streets of Liverpool hungry , crying, dirty all alone without anyone caring there at the tender age of two, but the compassionate Mr.
Earnshaw a wealthy man , Catherine's Cathy's father and takes him home. They never discovered the boy's true identity but because of the child's dark complexion, everyone calls him a gypsy.
The two Catherine and Heathcliff, grow up as brother and sister at Wuthering Heights always together Cathy and the unwanted orphan, playing on the lonely moors, they are soulmates.
Resented by Cathy's older brother Hindley, who beats him many times in fact everyone does, still the gentle Mr. Earnshaw loves the boy.
Morose, showing no emotions he can't afford to, still very angry underneath because of how others treat him, as an inferior, Heathcliff was never given another name.
When teenager Cathy decides to marry Edgar Linton from a respected well off family and Heathcliff hears about it , he disappears to parts unknown the penniless man feels betrayed Years pass and Heathcliff comes back from America rich, nobody learns how and he doesn't say either, probably not quite honestly and seeks vengeance.
The children of each estate the Linton's of Thrushcross Grange and the Earnshaw's of Wuthering Heights, inherit their respective homes, Cathy wants to maintain a friendship and maybe more with Heathcliff, the weak Edgar of course hates the gypsy yet can't stop the two from seeing each other, the attraction is too powerful.
The triangle will soon dissolve, people come and go but the moors abide. Strong novel with a bittersweet plot Love or despise this classic, you cannot help but admire its quality.

A homeless and abused orphan boy, who is picked up from the streets by Mr. Earnshaw, who takes him home with him to Wuthering Heights. Heathcliff falls into an unbreakable love with his new sister Catherine.
Heathcliff then spends the rest of his life seeking revenge on Catherine, her husband and their children.
Once an outcasted poor orphan, he becomes a powerful and violent man who made a fortune and destroys the life of the people around him. Borderline Personality Disorder The traumatized and abused Heathcliff Even though disguised as a love story, the world of Wuthering Heights is a world of sadism, violence and wanton cruelty.
Behind the adult masks of Heathcliff is a child so traumatized by abuse, that he has forgotten his humanity.
Heathcliff starts to torture and kill animals and graduates in adulthood to more gratuitous acts of violence like refusing to allow his wife to sleep in a bed, even though she is pregnant with his child or hanging her dog.
Despite the obvious abuse, no one helps her, because she was considered to be Heathcliff's property at the time. Heathcliff has signs of psychopathology and mirrors his own abuse in childhood.
He is unable to understand the thoughts, feelings, or motives of others and has no choice but to force his own emotions onto them, or introject their feelings into his own sense of self.
His disturbing love to Cathrine Cathrine is prone to hysteria, emotional instability, senseless wicked rages and has all the classical traits of Borderline Personality Disorder.
Impulsive to a point that she dashes her head against the arm of the sofa, grinding her teeth to a point that they might crash into splinters, feverish bewilderment or tearing the pillow with her teeth.
Like Heathcliff, she suffers frequents episodes of paranoia and is prone to splitting: Sometimes she thinks that everyone loves her, but then alters in an instant, thinking that everyone hates her.
She says she is afraid to be alone, but then acquires to be alone. Finally she is preoccupied with suicide. She states that she is tired of being enclosed in a prison and is wearying to escape.
Catherine becomes first delusional and then a haunting ghost memory The subsequent love story of Wuthering Heights is actually a relationship based on the pain of lost love and incest.
Catherine and Heathcliff grow up as siblings and even sleep in the same bed until puberty. Nevertheless Catherine and Heathcliff fall in love, even though not really in a sexual way.
They are fused together in a protective pact against sadistic adults intent on harming them. Their personalities are so damaged, that their individual identity is submersed in the other.
Catherine seems to be more a product of Heathcliff's split personality. In literature, the smoky, threatening, miserable factory-towns were often represented in religious terms, and compared to hell.
Wuthering Heights is a novel full of ghosts and spirits. Dead characters haunt the living, and the living try to keep the spirits of the dead alive, up to digging up their graves, in order to be closer to them.
Heathcliff is frequently compared to a demon and even though the reader may easily sympathize with the powerless and abused orphan, he turns into a villain with the trappings of a gentleman.
The upper classes had sympathies with the lower-class citizens when they were miserable, but feared the prospect of them acquiring political, social, cultural, or economic power.
For Catherine marrying Heathcliff is not an option, but she turns to the higher classes. However Heathliff never evolves from being a tyrant and destroys everything and everyone around him.
In any case their love is highly disturbing and schizophrenic, based on their shared perception that they are identical, denies difference, and is strangely asexual.
Although Wuthering Heights is now a classic of English literature, contemporaneous reviews were deeply polarized; it was controversial because of its unusually strong depiction of mental and physical cruelty, and it challenged strict Victorian ideals regarding religious hypocrisy, morality, social classes and gender inequality.
The novel also explores the effects of envy, nostalgia, pessimism and resentment. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.
Considering that this book was written in victorian England, and that Austen was writing superficial love stories only fifty years before, that just seems remarkable.
I see it more as a fluent interlacing of mental disease and the personality of a psychopath, trapped in a love story, which really left me kind of disturbed.

Audiobook Comments Extremely well-read. An absolute delight! View all 8 comments. SPOILERS Behold the wild, dark side of love. Are they the same thing?
If we are so intoxicated by someone as ending up seeing them as a mirror to our own self, is this love? It is. But sometimes it is sign not of devotion, but of egotism so strong that it stops us from seeing the actual person and we imagine a likeness that SPOILERS Behold the wild, dark side of love.
By believing he would agree to her plan she shows how little she takes into account what he actually is.
You just want to own them. They both grow up as captives of society that does not understand and accept them for who they are. He is the only one in front of whom she can be herself and she is the only one in front of whom he can be himself.
But by choosing to dissemble and submit, Catherine loses that spark that initially connects them. She believes it is for their own good. He is heartbroken.
When he comes back, he spends so much time and energy trying to bring back a girl who no longer exists. He cannot stand the woman she has turned herself into.
In this case, is he still in love with her or merely in the memory of her? When the person we have loved loses the part that has held our affections, when should we give up on them and when should we devote ourselves to restoring that part?
He wants freedom, she wants security. Benjamin Franklin says 'Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.
I believe it is a very subjective matter. But in the case of Catherine it really does turn out this way.
In the end she has neither comfort, nor freedom. How much do we know those who we claim to love? Either blinded by passion or by our desire to recreate the objects of our passion.
If we cannot truly accept our loved ones for who they are and we try to change them, then do we truly love them or simply those we would like them to be?
Can such a distinction be made? Or is it a little bit of both? Do we love only those parts of our partners that resemble ourselves or are we willing to love even those we cannot accept?
Are love and acceptance the same thing? Catherine tries to tame Heathcliff and in doing so, she destroys him.
His passionate love turns into passionate hatred. Feeling so close to someone as not to know where you end and they begin is either a sign of profound affinity or a profound delusion.
Love is merciful and cruel, generous and selfish, sorrow and ecstasy. We all lose something and gain something by choosing to give into another person.
Change is inevitable. Sometimes we get stronger, sometimes we are ruined. Sometimes it is a little bit of both. Some of us find their worthy partners, some, sadly, never do.
But I believe that no matter on which side of the coin you turn out, staying faithful to yourself is always the right choice.

She died the following year, aged After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in Thirty years earlier, the Earnshaws live at Wuthering Heights with their children, Hindley and Catherine, and a servant — Nelly herself.
Returning from a trip to Liverpool, Earnshaw brings a young orphan whom he names Heathcliff and treats as his favourite.
His own children he neglects, especially after his wife dies. Hindley beats Heathcliff, who gradually becomes close friends with Catherine.
Hindley departs for university, returning as the new master of Wuthering Heights on the death of his father three years later.
He and his new wife Frances allow Heathcliff to stay, but only as a servant. Heathcliff and Catherine spy on Edgar Linton and his sister Isabella, children who live nearby at Thrushcross Grange.
Catherine is attacked by their dog, and the Lintons take her in, sending Heathcliff home. The Lintons were part of the professional middle class, and the Earnshaws were a little below the Lintons.
Nelly Dean was lower-middle class, as she worked non-manual labor servants were superior to manual laborers. Heathcliff, an orphan, used to occupy the lowest rung in society in the Wuthering Heights universe, but when Mr.
Earnshaw openly favored him, he went against societal norms. Class is also why Cathy decides to marry Edgar and not Heathcliff. When Heathcliff returns to the heath a well-dressed, moneyed, and educated man, he still remains an outcast from society.
He debases Hareton the way Hindley had debased him, thereby enacting a reverse class-motivated revenge. Wuthering Heights is mainly told by two narrators, Lockwood and his own narrator, Nelly, who tells him about the events that took place in Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange.
However, other narrators are interspersed throughout the novel. All of the voices in the novel create a choral narrative by offering multiple points of view of the lives of the inhabitants of Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights.
It's worth noting that no storyteller is fully objective. Respecting a book so original as this, and written with so much power of imagination, it is natural that there should be many opinions.
Indeed, its power is so predominant that it is not easy after a hasty reading to analyze one's impressions so as to speak of its merits and demerits with confidence.
We have been taken and carried through a new region, a melancholy waste, with here and there patches of beauty; have been brought in contact with fierce passions, with extremes of love and hate, and with sorrow that none but those who have suffered can understand.
This has not been accomplished with ease, but with an ill-mannered contempt for the decencies of language, and in a style which might resemble that of a Yorkshire farmer who should have endeavored to eradicate his provincialism by taking lessons of a London footman.
We have had many sad bruises and tumbles in our journey, yet it was interesting, and at length we are safely arrived at a happy conclusion.
Douglas Jerrold's Weekly Newspaper wrote:. Wuthering Heights is a strange sort of book,—baffling all regular criticism; yet, it is impossible to begin and not finish it; and quite as impossible to lay it aside afterwards and say nothing about.
The women in the book are of a strange fiendish-angelic nature, tantalising, and terrible, and the men are indescribable out of the book itself.
We strongly recommend all our readers who love novelty to get this story, for we can promise them that they never have read anything like it before.
It is very puzzling and very interesting Examiner wrote:. This is a strange book. It is not without evidences of considerable power: but, as a whole, it is wild, confused, disjointed, and improbable; and the people who make up the drama, which is tragic enough in its consequences, are savages ruder than those who lived before the days of Homer.
Literary World wrote:. In the whole story not a single trait of character is elicited which can command our admiration, not one of the fine feelings of our nature seems to have formed a part in the composition of its principal actors.
In spite of the disgusting coarsness of much of the dialogue, and the improbabilities of much of the plot, we are spellbound.
This view began to change in the s with the publication of Mary Robinson's biography of Emily in Modernist novelist Virginia Woolf affirmed the greatness of Wuthering Heights in In Charles Percy Sanger's work on the chronology of Wuthering Heights "affirmed Emily's literary craft and meticulous planning of the novel and disproved Charlotte's presentation of her sister as an unconscious artist who 'did not know what she had done'.
Leavis excluded Wuthering Heights from the great tradition of the English novel because it was "a 'kind of sport'—an anomaly with 'some influence of an essentially undetectable kind.
Writing in The Guardian in writer and editor Robert McCrum placed Wuthering Heights at number 17 in his list of greatest novels of all time.
Wuthering Heights releases extraordinary new energies in the novel, renews its potential, and almost reinvents the genre.
The scope and drift of its imagination, its passionate exploration of a fatal yet regenerative love affair, and its brilliant manipulation of time and space put it in a league of its own.
Criticising McCrum's second list journalist and author Rachel Cooke , also writing in The Guardian , agreed with the inclusion of Wuthering Heights , calling it a masterpiece.
Writing for BBC Culture in author and book reviewer Jane Ciabattari  polled 82 book critics from outside the UK and presented Wuthering Heights as number 7 in the resulting list of greatest British novels.
Writing in The Independent journalist and author Ceri Radford and news presenter, journalist and TV producer Chris Harvey included Wuthering Heights in a list of the 40 best books to read during lockdown.
See also: " Wuthering Heights : Landscape" — a British Library audio-video. Hence it is that both Emily and Charlotte are always invoking the help of nature.
They both feel the need of some more powerful symbol of the vast and slumbering passions in human nature than words or actions can convey.
They seized those aspects of the earth which were most akin to what they themselves felt or imputed to their characters, and so their storms, their moors, their lovely spaces of summer weather are not ornaments applied to decorate a dull page or display the writer's powers of observation--they carry on the emotion and light up the meaning of the book.
Wuthering Heights is an old house high on the Pennine moorland of West Yorkshire. The first description is provided by Lockwood, the new tenant of the nearby Thrushcross Grange:.
Wuthering Heights is the name of Mr. Heathcliff's dwelling, " wuthering " being a significant provincial adjective, descriptive of the atmospheric tumult to which its station is exposed in stormy weather.
Pure, bracing ventilation they must have up there at all times, indeed. One may guess the power of the north wind blowing over the edge by the excessive slant of a few stunted firs at the end of the house, and by a range of gaunt thorns all stretching their limbs one way, as if craving alms of the sun.
Lord David Cecil in Early Victorian Novelists drew attention to the contrast between the two main settings in Wuthering Heights :. We have Wuthering Heights, the land of storm; high on the barren moorland, naked to the shock of the elements, the natural home of the Earnshaw family, fiery, untamed children of the storm.
On the other hand, sheltered in the leafy valley below, stands Thrushcross Grange, the appropriate home of the children of calm, the gentle, passive, timid Lintons.
Walter Allen , in The English Novel , likewise "spoke of the two houses in the novel as symbolising 'two opposed principles which … ultimately compose a harmony'".
The entry on Wuthering Heights in the Oxford Companion to English Literature , "says that the ending of the novel points to a union of 'the two contrasting worlds and moral orders represented by the Heights and the Grange'".
There is no evidence that either Thrushcross Grange or Wuthering Heights are based on actual buildings, so that the following suggestions are speculative.
However, it is too grand for a farmhouse. However, it does not match the description given in the novel and is closer in size and appearance to the farmhouse of Wuthering Heights.
Ponden Hall, Stanbury, near Haworth", sees Shibden Hall , Northowram , in Halifax parish, as more likely,  referring to Hilda Marsden's article "The Scenic Background of Wuthering Heights".
Most of the novel is the story told by housekeeper Nelly Dean to Lockwood, though the novel "uses several narrators in fact, five or six to place the story in perspective, or in a variety of perspectives".
Thus, for example, Lockwood, the first narrator of the story, tells the story of Nelly, who herself tells the story of another character.
The frame story is that of Lockwood, who informs us of his meeting with the strange and mysterious "family" living in almost total isolation in the stony uncultivated land of northern England.
The inner story is that of Nelly Dean, who transmits to Lockwood the history of the two families during the last two generations.
Nelly Dean examines the events retrospectively and attempts to report them as an objective eyewitness to Lockwood. Critics have questioned the reliability of the two main narrators.
The narrative in addition includes an excerpt from Catherine Earnshaw's old diary, and short sections narrated by Heathcliff, Isabella, and another servant.
She was familiar with Greek tragedies and was a good Latinist. This debate had been launched in by Robert Chambers. It raised questions of divine providence and the violence which underlies the universe and relationships between living things.
Romanticism was also a major influence, which included the Gothic novel , the novels of Walter Scott  and the poetry of Byron.
It explores the domestic entrapment and subjection of women to patriarchal authority , and the attempts to subvert and escape such restriction. According Juliet Barker , Walter Scott's novel Rob Roy had a significant influence on Wuthering Height , which, though "regarded as the archetypal Yorkshire novel Rob Roy is set "in the wilds of Northumberland , among the uncouth and quarrelsome squirearchical Osbaldistones", while Cathy Earnshaw "has strong similarities with Diana Vernon, who is equally out of place among her boorish relations Barker p.
From Charlotte and Branwell's Angrian tales began to feature Byronic heroes. Such heroes had a strong sexual magnetism and passionate spirit, and demonstrated arrogance and black-heartedness.
Byron had died the previous year. Byron became synonymous with the prohibited and audacious. However, romances such as Wuthering Heights and Scott's own historical romances and Herman Melville 's Moby Dick are often referred to as novels.
Horace Walpole 's The Castle of Otranto is usually considered the first gothic novel. Walpole's declared aim was to combine elements of the medieval romance , which he deemed too fanciful, and the modern novel, which he considered to be too confined to strict realism.
