Wuthering Heights [9780141439556]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'May you not rest, as long as I am living! You said I killed you - haunt me, then!'

Caught in a snowstorm, Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange on the bleak Yorkshire moors, is forced to seek shelter of Wuthering Heights. There he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before: the intense passion between the foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, her betrayal of him and the bitter vengeance he now wreaks on the innocent heirs of the past. Emily Bronte's novel of impossible desires, violence and transgression is a masterpiece of intense, unsettling power.

Edited with an introduction and notes by Pauline Nestor. Preface by Lucasta Miller.

'Wuthering Heights is commonly thought of as romantic, but try rereading it without being astonished by the comfortableness with which Bronte's characters subject one another to extremes of physical and psychological violence' - Jeanette Winterson

'As a first novel, there is very little that can compare to it. Even Shakespeare took over a decade to reach the clifftop extremities of King Lear' - Sarah Waters


AUTHOR: Emily Bronte (1818-48) along with her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, is one of the most significant literary figures of the 19th century. She wrote just one strikingly innovative novel but was also a gifted and intense poet. Pauline Nestor teaches English at Monash University, Australia. Lucasta Miller was educated at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.
