Considered lurid and shocking by mid-19th-century standards, Wuthering Heights
was initially thought to be such a publishing risk that its author, Emily
Brontë, was asked to pay some of the publication costs. 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.
