Not yet rated | write a review
When Mr. Lockwood, the new tenant at Thrushcross Grange, visits his landlord at Wuthering Heights, he is astounded by the unorthodox character of the man and his household. Back at the Grange, he asks his servant, Nelly, about the family. She tells him a strange, multigenerational tale of love, class, jealously, and revenge.
Thirty years earlier, Mr. Earnshaw, master of Wuthering Heights, returned from a trip to Liverpool with an unkempt orphan in tow, annoucning to his wife and children that the child was now a member of the family. While young Cathering Earnshaw became close with this boy, Heathcliff, her older brother Hindley sank into bitter resentment of the urchin who had usurped his father's and sister's affections - a feeling that only deepened when his father sent him away to college. As Catherine and Heathcliff grew into young adults, and their affection blossomed into desire, Hindley's resentment boiled over into hatred, setting the stage for a tragic and twisted drama whose aftermath would shake the foundations of both Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange.
This edition, beautifully bound, features a section on the life and times of Emily Bronte; an introdution by Tess O'Toole, PhD in Comparative Literature from Harvard; a genealogy; glossary of the Yorkshire dialect; endnotes; a 'Based on the Book' section; and a section on further reading.

From the Jacket

My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods. Time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees - my love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath - a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff - He's always, always in my mind - not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself - but, as my own being.
