Wuthering Heights Author:Emily Bronte Emily Bronte wrote only one novel, but with it, she earned for herself a sure place in English literature. — Wuthering Heights is a study in contrasts, in which nature and man are brought into passionate focus. The sturdy Yorkshire farmhouse of the Earnshaws--Wuthering Heights--is exposed to all the elements; Thrushcross Grange, home of the well-... more »born Lintons, is a fine, sheltered mansion.
Into this world of opposites comes a waif alien to both extremes--Heathcliff, whose violent nature becomes more apparent as he grows to manhood and falls in love with the capricious Catherine Earnshaw. Tragedy is the result when Catherine rejects Heathcliff, her natural affinity, to marry the very proper Edgar Linton.
