Description

The tale of Heathcliff and Cathy's ungovernable love and suffering, and the havoc that their passion wreaks on the families of the Earnshaws and the Lintons, shocked the book's first readers, with even Emily's sister Charlotte wondering 'whether it is right or advisable to create beings like Heathcliff'. Replete with unforgettable characters and situations that have seared themselves into our literary consciousness, Emily Bronte's intense masterpiece is one of the most haunting love stories in the canon of English literature.show more

Review quote

"She looked out upon a world cleft into gigantic disorder and felt within her the power to unite it in a book . . . She could free life from its dependence on facts; with a few touches indicate the spirit of a face so that it needs no body; by speaking of the moor make the wind blow and the thunder roar." - Virginia Woolf"As I crouched in a corner with a copy of Wuthering Heights, I had the sensation that it was not the torch that was lighting up this intimate space, but the book itself. The book was radiant, the words shone." - Jeanette Winterson"A masterpiece . . . I still get shivers down my spine whenever I read the words of Cathy: 'I am Heathcliff!'" - Bonnie Greershow more
