WUTHERING HEIGHTS


WUTHERING HEIGHTS

EMILY BRONTE    Book Number: 85417    Product format: Hardback

Having taken over the tenancy of Thrushcross Grange, Mr Lockwood visits his landlord, Heathcliff, at neighbouring Wuthering Heights. A former housekeeper relates to Lockwood Heathcliff's story, that of a foundling brought there by Mr Earnshaw to be raised alongside his own children, Hindley and Catherine. Hindley's contempt for the perceived outsider increases when he becomes master of Wuthering Heights, while a close spiritual bond forms between Heathcliff and Catherine. That bond is stretched to breaking point when the adult Catherine chooses refined, sophisticated Edgar Linton of Thrushcross Grange, who offers her the chance to be 'the greatest woman in the neighbourhood'. Heathcliff disappears, only to return, enriched, years later, a destructive force of nature bent on avenging past wrongs. His machinations eventually make him master of both properties, but the spiritual connection with Catherine transcends revenge, and Heathcliff is victim as much as victor. In Emily Brontë's only novel, passions as wild as the surrounding Yorkshire Moors are unleashed. Too disturbing for many tastes when first published, it is a dark tale of love and loss, power and possession, action and terrifying reaction. It still stands as one of the greatest works of fiction in the English language. It is set in 1801. 365pp with gilt edged glamorous pages. New hardback edition with black cover with embossed bronze, gold and pale pink floral decoration.
