- DescriptionIntroduction 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 t 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 vel a masterpiece of English literature.

Great book, great read, great value!
Emily wrote another winner with this novel. Set in the moors this tale of passion, fear, and romance in a strange household is gripping and good reading. The final scene as Charlotte runs across the rain-soaked moors in fear of her life is brilliant.
