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. A somber tale of consuming passions and vengeance played out against the lonely moors of northern England, the book proved to be one of the most enduring classics of English literature.
The turbulent and tempestuous love story of Cathy and Heathcliff spans two generations—from the time Heathcliff, a strange, coarse young boy, is brought to live on the Earnshaws' windswept estate, through Cathy's marriage to Edgar Linton and Heathcliff's plans for revenge, to Cathy's death years later and the eventual union of the surviving Earnshaw and Linton heirs.
A masterpiece of imaginative fiction, Wuthering Heights (the author's only novel) remains as poignant and compelling today as it was when first published in 1847.
The story of the Earnshaws and the Linton Families is told by Nellie Dean, who works as a maid, nurse and housekeeper by both families. Read morePublished 17 days ago by josephine briggs
The book showed up in great condition. It was bigger than I thought it would be but I like it. It was printed in '96, which is awesome because the price on the back says $4.50. :-DPublished 26 days ago by Journeysgirl
