"Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte

For the Fourth Edition,the editor collated the 1847 text with the two modern texts (Norton sWilliam J. Sale collation and the Clarendon), and found a great numberof variants, including accidentals. This discovery led to changes in thebody of the Norton Critical Edition text that are explained in thepreface. New to "Backgrounds and Contexts" are additional letters, acompositional chronology, related prose, and reviews of the 1847 text."Criticism" collects five important assessments of Wuthering Heights,three of them new to the Fourth Edition, including Lin Haire-Sargeant sessay on film adaptations of the novel.
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.
