"Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte
Wuthering Heights is awild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love betweenCatherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine'sfather. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliatedby Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love forCatherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to returnyears later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact aterrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story ischaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of acomplex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorlandsetting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this uniquenovel a masterpiece of English literature.
