‘Wuthering Heights’, by Emily Brontë, tells the tale of the all-encompassing and passionate, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and many around them.
Recounting the doomed affair between sweet Cathy Earnshaw and the brutal outsider Heathcliff, ‘Wuthering Heights’ is a romantic drama, a passionate romance that proved that ardour can survive grimmest landscape and weather.
Now considered a classic of English literature, Wuthering Heights met with mixed reviews by critics when it first appeared, mainly because of the narrative’s stark depiction of mental and physical cruelty.
