Virginia Woolf said of Emily Brontë that her writing could "make the wind blow and the thunder roar," and so it does in her only novel, Wuthering Heights. The story is that of an orphan who falls in love above his class and the consequences that drive all of his subsequent actions. Wuthering Heights presents both the implications of strict social and class boundaries as well as the timeless subject of a love that will not be denied. Catherine Earnshaw, Heathcliff, and the windswept moors that are the setting of their mythic love are as immediately stirring to the reader of today as they have been for every generation of readers since the novel was first published in 1847.
