Wuthering Heights - Audio Book
iOS iPhone Education
Heathcliff and Catherine believe they are destined to love each other forever, but when cruelty and snobbery separate them, their untamed emotions literally consume them.
Set amid the wild and stormy Yorkshire moors, Wuthering Heights, an unpolished and devastating epic of childhood playmates who grow into soul mates, is widely regarded as the most original tale of thwarted desire and heartbreak in the English language.
Emily Brontë’s only novel, published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, tells the tale of the all-encompassing and passionate, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and many around them.
Now considered a classic of English literature, Wuthering Heights met with mixed reviews by critics when it first appeared.
Though Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre was originally considered the best of the Brontë sisters’ works, many subsequent critics of Wuthering Heights argued that its originality and achievement made it superior.
Wuthering Heights remains one of literature’s most daring explorations into the dark side of romantic passion.
It is, for the most part, a showcase of emotional savagery and a dismal portrayal of the human heart.
Not well received when first published under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, Emily Bronte went to her grave believing that her one and only novel was a complete failure. A subsequent edition, edited by sister Charlotte, was released after Emily's death and became a worldwide success.
Wuthering is indeed a masterpiece with a thrilling story, superb characterization and stunning prose.
Its power has enthralled readers for over a century and a half, and shows no sign of lessening.
This classic of English literature has certainly stood the test of time.
