Published in 1847, Emily Brontë’s only novel Wuthering Heights is an evergreen classic. A passionate tale of love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, the novel challenged Victorian ideals of morality, class, religion and gender inequality. Heathcliff, an orphan, brought to Wuthering Heights by Mr. Earnshaw, represents the quintessential Byronic hero—brooding and enigmatic, whose social status is foregrounded by his lack of a first name. Spurned by Catherine and humiliated by her brother, Hindley, Heathcliff leaves the Heights, only to return later as a revenge-seeking, wealthy and polished man. Catherine chooses to marry Edgar Linton, an antithesis to Heathcliff. What follows is a series of disastrous events in which the characters are consumed by their tragic fate. Evocative and gothic, the novel was initially termed ‘abhorrent’ and later appreciated for its originality and poetic grandeur.

A Student's Guide to Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte is a general introduction to one of the great English novels of the nineteenth century. Misunderstood by most critics and commentators upon its publication in 1847, the story of Catherine and Heathcliff and their peers and descendants slowly became recognized as the work of a genius and is now on nearly every list of recommended books for both high school and college students. However, many students today find the novel difficult to read and understand because of its language and its setting; especially challenging to some are the sections in which characters speak in the Yorkshire dialect. This guide provides an easy-to-use glossary of that dialect and translations of the dialogue. It also includes discussions of the social, economic, and political background of the period (the last part of the eighteenth and the first part of the nineteenth centuries). Combined with a thorough coverage of language and background, this guide offers a list of questions about the reading that are intended to lead the students to independent thinking about the work. Unlike some better-known guides, this text contains no detailed summary of parts of the novel. Students must read chapters of the novel itself in order to answer the questions. In a few instances, readers must go outside Wuthering Heights to answer a question; that is, some basic research is required. In addition, the appendices contain materials intended to enrich the novel and to deepen the appreciation of each student for this outstanding work. It is the desire of the author to make Wuthering Heights more readily accessible to students and at the same time to challenge them to engage in independent critical reading.

Published in 1845, Emily Bronte’s gothic novel set on the windy moors of Yorkshire is the story of the doomed love between Catherine Earnshaw and her father’s adopted son, Heathcliff. The book was initially poorly received by many critics who found its dark, tragic story needlessly harsh and disturbing. That opinion has not endured, and the only novel Emily Bronte published is now considered to be one of the great classics of English literature.

Emily Brontë Appeared First In The Literary World As A Poet, But She Is Remembered Even Today For The Single Powerful Novel, Wuthering Heights, That She Composed Towards The End Of Her Life. The Novel Is A Singular One And It Stands Outside The Main Current Of Nineteenth Century Fiction. Because Of Its Peculiar Nature It Has Given Rise To Much Controversy. Some Consider It A Gothic Novel While Others Think Of It As A Novel Of Revenge. Some Others Find In It A Romantic Tale Of Languishing Love. The Dramatic Way Of Narration By Quoting The Exact Words Spoken By The Different Characters, By Mainly Two Narrators, Nelly Dean And Lockwood, Gives The Novel A Peculiar Interest. Besides, The Portrayal Of The Character Of Heathcliff, The Protagonist, Betrays A Powerful Imagination Of The Novelist. Like Coleridge, Emily Brontë Has Been Successful In Giving The Esoteric World She Has Created, A Touch Of Reality And Credibility By Making The Supernatural A Part Of The Natural. The Novel Is A Story Of Two Houses, At Wuthering Heights And Thrushcross Grange With A Vast Moorland Separating Them. Heathcliff Comes As A Disturber Of Peace In These Two Houses And The Peace Is Restored Only With His Death. It Is Not Simply A Tragic Tale Although There Are Several Deaths In It. The Novel Shows That There Are Both Good And Evil In This World And That Evil Is Ultimately Won Over By Love. Wuthering Heights Remains A Powerful Creation Of Emily Brontë S Imagination, And Because Of Her Originality And Poetic Intensity It Is Held That She Might Have Been Shakespeare S Younger Sister (Westminster Review, 1898).
