1.0 out of 5 stars Unpopular Opinion Alert! #bookreview #/5
By Octothorpe Reader LeoraK on August 28, 2018
This review contains spoilers.

Wuthering Heights has been called many many things. Most notable "a literary masterpiece" and "a tragic love story".
Literary Masterpiece? maybe (maybe is a relative term)
Tragic Love story? Most definitely not!

Literary Masterpiece:
As the entire world likes to point out, from a literary point of view, Wuthering Heights is full of symbolism.
(I didn’t google these, they are quite clear in the book):
Doubles and opposites (to the point of the characters being so pathetic, you just want to slap them! - this book is very violent... it is making me violent...), the surrounding landscape with personalities, the weather with personalities, dogs (only the strong will survive), locked doors as a form of revenge and is it a coincidence that doors are made of wood and his name is Mr. Lockwood?

Yay!!! A+ for symbolism.

Ok.... but who really reads a book looking for symbolism? We read books to relate to characters, to escape into someone else's world for a short period of time and see something different.

I could only relate to:
The Scarlet Thread runs strong in Brontë’s tale. Children making the same bad, irresponsible, selfish decisions as their parents, not considering the consequences and history repeats itself. Almost to the letter (pun intended).

Tragic Love Story
There is no love in this book - you cannot even call it infatuation or lust. Catherine and Heathcliff are mean-spirited (evil, so evil), self-involved, abusive and narcissistic. Their relationship ... or whatever, is completely toxic. Not even mentioning the fact that Catherine married another man and still wants to entertain the notion that she can spend time with Heathcliff and expect her husband to feel empathy for her. Then, when she needs to deal with the consequences, true to her narcissistic personality disorder, she blames everyone else.

If you want to read this book to write a book report or research it to learn about symbolism, yes; by all means, go for it. If you want to read a love story, this book is NOT FOR YOU!

A Very Important Note to Conclude:
The literary career of the Brontë sisters is interesting and inspirational. Charlotte was the first to attempt to get her poems published. She was rejected several times and told in no uncertain terms that literature was a man’s business and holds no occupation for a woman. Charlotte was not dismayed and kept trying until she found a publisher willing to publish her poems, as well as Jane Eyre, Emily’s Wuthering Heights and Anne’s Agnes Grey in 1847. And so, began the Brontë sisters’ literary careers.

Favorite Quotes:
“You could not open a book in this library that I have not looked into, and got something out of also…”

“How did you contrive to preserve the common sympathies of human nature when you resided here? I cannot recognize any sentiment which those around share with me.”

“ ‘She abandoned them under a delusion,’ he answered; ‘picturing in me a hero of romance, and expecting unlimited indulgences from my chivalrous devotion.' ” -- like this book.
