About the Author
Emily Brontë, sister of Charlotte and Anne Brontë was born on July 30, 1818, in Yorkshire. Wuthering Heights, published in 1847, was Emily's first and only published novel. A classic tale of jealousy, vengefulness and passion, it is widely regarded as a classic of English literature. The novel brings out Emily Brontë's mastery of an extremely complex structure, acute evocation of place and poetic grandeur of vision. Emily died on December 19, 1848, at the young age of thirty. She knew nothing of the success which Wuthering Heights was to be finally accorded with.

The darkest and most passionate Love story ever written... Emily Brontë weaved such a world out of her imagination that she left the generations since spellbound.. With only one Novel to her credit she has left such a mark on the world and the centuries which is not comparable.. What Love can make you do.. The loss can make you do.. The Extent to which your passion can push you... How Revenge that can burn your whole world to ground...
Heathcliff, Catherine Earnsha, Ellen Dean, Edgar Linton, Hareton Earnshaw, Isabella Linton and Catherine Linton all are memorable and grounded characters who are full with raw emotions and desires.. and how the single bond of Love beyond any redemption swirls their world in the winds created by the loss of that love in those Dark forsaken moors, is something to behold... and How Emily has characterised their personas with the countryside she has created is beyond any comparison... Go for it.. Every Reader must read it in his life...
Having an image of Heathcliff and Cathy embracing Gone with the Wind -style on a windy moor ironed in my mind, I was almost completely unprepared for the hermetic, moribund, bleak, vengeful, perverse, and yes--obsessive--novel that this really is. Don Quixote is not about windmills and Wuthering Heights is not really a love story. Heathcliff and Cathy's love affair (if it can be called that) is a narcissistic ("I am Heathcliff!" Cathy exclaims at one point), possessive, and imminently cruel relationship predicated on self-denial and an obsessiveness that relies not on passion, but rather borders on hatred. They are selfish, violent, and contriving people who have borne their fair share of abuses (mostly Heathcliff in this respect) and in turn, feel no compunction about raining similar abuses on those who they find beneath them.
Given this dynamic, it seems perhaps inevitable that these two characters would make not only themselves miserable, but everyone around them miserable--even after death. This is particularly easy to accomplish mainly because there are--with the exception of Mr. Lockwood, the tenant who rents a home from Heathcliff--no outside characters. Everyone in the novel (including the servants) is isolated, trapped between the same two homes, with the same two families, and have truly no chance of escaping any of the events and repercussions that occur.(One character makes a temporary escape, only to suffer all the more for it later.)
More important, however, is the fact that Heathcliff and Cathy don't even need be present (although they usually are in some fashion) for their influences to be felt by the other characters. The sins of the father, are literally, inherited and distributed among the next generation. The children of Wuthering Heights are not only physical doubles of their parents (At least 3 characters look like Cathy, and one resembles Heathcliff), but they are also spiritual stand-ins. They must suffer for past transgressions, and they must find a way to make amends for them. All, I might add, without the particular benefit of ever having the full story, the context that might be necessary to actually change their circumstances. Misery, it seems, is inevitable.
There is, of course, much more to be said about this novel. One could spend quite some time dissecting all the various repetitions and doublings, the narrative structure (the story is told by the housekeeper to the lodger who then writes it down as a diary entry), or the archetypal analogies and semi-biblical symbolism that seems to be implicit to every part of this story.
The point being, I suppose, that while Wuthering Heights may not be the wistful romance one (or maybe just I) expected to be, it is a particularly satisfying one for all of its dark and layered surprises.
Each character seemed to be the portrayal of outcomes of difference in their raising. Heathcliff turned out diabolical and vengeful being subjected to the lonely and brute childhood. Catherine (older) turned out to be a wayward one owing to the constant support of her whims. Haerton and Catherine (younger) were the one's who would display that the effect of the people and the way they were treated by others are the prominent factors that influence a person's nature.
In love with Emily Bronte's intense writing style. Disheartened as this is her only book.
