Full description for Wuthering Heights
The heartbreaking tale of the doomed lovers Heathcliff and Catherine, Emily Bronte's gothic masterpiece, "Wuthering Heights", has enthralled readers for more than a century and a half-spawning film and televison adaptations, operas, musicals, and a hit single by British pop superstar Kate Bush. It is the ultimate story of young, unrequited love, an acknowledged favorite of "Twilight's" own star-crossed lovers Bella and Edward. Now Bronte's classic is reborn with a brilliantly conceived, gorgeously illustrated unabridged edition certain to appeal to today's readers, including the millions of avid fans of "The Twilight" saga. With more than 40 original illustrations by renowned artist Tracey Dockray - giving the story a fresh, boldly contemporary visual spin - "Wuthering Heights" is now more exhilarating and alive than ever before! "Wuthering Heights" will be directed by Andrea Arnold, who won an Academy Award for her short live action film "Wasp", in 2005. Her film "Red Road" was cited as one of the discoveries of this year's Cannes Film Festival (2006). It went on to win the Jury Prize at Cannes that year. Arnold won the 2007 BAFTA Award for Best Newcomer for directing "Red Road". Her 2009 film "Fish Tank" permiered at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival, where she once again won the Jury Prize. The film also went on to win the BAFTA Award for Outstanding British Film in 2010. The film stars Kaya Scodelario, Nichola Burley, and newcomer James Howson.
