The spellbinding 19th century novel Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte, has charmed generations of readers. Set on the English moors, the novel tells the tumultuous tale of Catherine and Heathcliff, doomed lovers. In this frame narrative, a narrator named Lockwood arrives on the moors to rent a house from the cantankerous Heathcliff. The housekeeper tells Lockwood the gothic tale of the Heathcliff and the Earnshaw family, who adopted the man as a young child. Throughout his youth, Heathcliff grows up to cherish a hopeless love for the Earnshaw daughter, Catherine, and develops a lifelong enmity with Hindley, Catherine’s vindictive brother. Catherine later enters a loveless marriage with another man, and Heathcliff, who has made his fortune in the interval, takes his revenge by marrying Isabella Linton, a young woman from a neighboring estate. Both of these marriages are loveless, and turn tragically destructive. Bronte’s rendering of an era of misery is a highly regarded literary masterpiece, withstanding the test of time, and Wuthering Heights remains a gripping tale of Catherine and Heathcliff’s tragic love story.
