The Standard Ebooks edition of Wuthering Heights: An adopted child ends up Wuthering Heights was Emily Brontë's sole published novel before her early. Emily Brontë's only novel, this tale portrays Catherine and Heathcliff, their all- encompassing love for one another, and how this unresolved passio. Wuthering Heights is a novel by Emily Brontë, written between October and June , and published in under the pseudonym Ellis Bell. It was her.
The decision to publish came after the success of her sister Charlotte's novel, Jane Eyre.
After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights, and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in Wuthering Heights is the name of the farmhouse on the North York Moors where the story unfolds. The book's core theme is the destructive effect that jealousy and vengefulness have, both on the jealous or vengeful individuals and on their communities.
Although Wuthering Heights is now widely regarded as a classic of English literature, it received mixed reviews when first published, and was considered controversial because its depiction of mental and physical cruelty was unusually stark, and it challenged strict Victorian ideals of the day, including religious hypocrisy, morality, social classes and gender inequality.
The English poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti referred to it as "A fiend of a book — an incredible monster The action is laid in hell, — only it seems places and people have English names there. Why read this book?

Jane Bingham, Darrell Warner, Publisher: Usborne Publishing Ltd Published: Wuthering Heights Qualitas Classics Contributors: Penguin Classics Published: Happily, the architect had foresight to build it strong: One stop brought us into the family sitting-room, without any introductory lobby or passage: It includes kitchen and parlour, generally; but I believe at Wuthering Heights the kitchen is forced to retreat altogether into another quarter: One end, indeed, reflected splendidly both light and heat from ranks of immense pewter dishes, interspersed with silver jugs and tankards, towering row after row, on a vast oak dresser, to the very roof.
The latter had never been under-drawn: Above the chimney were sundry villainous old guns, and a couple of horse-pistols: The floor was of smooth, white stone; the chairs, high-backed, primitive structures, painted green: In an arch under the dresser reposed a huge, liver-coloured bitch pointer, surrounded by a swarm of squealing puppies; and other dogs haunted other recesses.
The apartment and furniture would have been nothing extraordinary as belonging to a homely, northern farmer, with a stubborn countenance, and stalwart limbs set out to advantage in knee-breeches and gaiters. Such an individual seated in his arm-chair, his mug of ale frothing on the round table before him, is to be seen in any circuit of five or six miles among these hills, if you go at the right time after dinner.
But Mr. Heathcliff forms a singular contrast to his abode and style of living.
He is a dark-skinned gipsy in aspect, in dress and manners a gentleman: Possibly, some people might suspect him of a degree of under-bred pride; I have a sympathetic chord within that tells me it is nothing of the sort: I know, by instinct, his reserve springs from an aversion to showy displays of feeling—to manifestations of mutual kindliness.
I bestow my own attributes over-liberally on him.
Heathcliff may have entirely dissimilar reasons for keeping his hand out of the way when he meets a would-be acquaintance, to those which actuate me. Let me hope my constitution is almost peculiar: Download Links for 'Wuthering Heights': Categories All ebooks.
