Wuthering Heights
Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront
Wuthering Heights is Emily Bront?'s only novel. Written between October 1845 and June 1846, Wuthering Heights was published in 1847 under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell"; Bront? died the following year, aged 30. Wuthering Heights and Anne Bront?'s Agnes Grey were accepted by publisher Thomas Newby before the success of their 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 1850.

"Having leveled my palace, don't erect a hovel and complacently admire your own charity in giving me that for a home.”

This quote could be from Pedagogy of the Oppressed, but it was said by Heathcliff to Cathy.

Whilst this isn't usually my favoured genre, I've heard so many people rave about this gothic romance tragedy, so I've always been intrigued. The drama in this book was so woefully written and I enjoyed the tense atmosphere between all the characters. Heathcliff was such an interesting yet dislikeable character, utterly obsessed with Catherine. The direction of the story towards the end wasn't how I would have liked it, but still worth the read!

I read this novel long time ago. I forgot how terrible Mr Heathcliff was and how dysfunctional, violent, co-dependent these relations were. But thinking about the author, how brave she was to write in a novel about these topics was incredible and she was young. I think I need to re-read it in the future after maybe read more about the author. I will need, of course, another beautiful edition. I read the Thomas Nelson edition. 4⭐️

Because I'm an English Lit teacher there are an absurd amount of books I've reread an absurd amount of times, but purely for pleasure I've read Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry multiple times. I've also read Wonder by RJ Palacio both in school and at home with my own kids 💛

I've read some crazy books, but this was... indescribable. A good book, but damn were those characters horrible and some a bit dumb. Felt exasperated here and there. The things that went on, unpunished.. Kate Bush' song was perfect, it fit so well and gave me some much needed lightness to persevere. They're not pretty, but I do enjoy the Penguin Popular Classics.

Wuthering Heights is often discussed within the context of a timeless love story, but the novel also features many of the ghost story's enduring features. The story is told via the popular ghost story wrap-around medium of the faithful old servant.

This is probably one of my favorite classics. The novel was so well-written. I enjoyed all the characters, even Heathcliff surprisingly, but my favorites were Mrs. Dean and Hareton. The relationship between Heathcliff and Catherine was beautiful and yet disastrous. I was so engrossed in wanting to learn everything about Heathcliff, I couldn‘t put the novel down. In some sickly twisted way, I really enjoyed his character. Overall, wonderful read.

⭐️ Do you enjoy books that are moody? For you, what is a moody book? ⭐️

Tagged is the first book that came to mind. Pictured is my old paperback copy. My moody teenage self loved Wuthering Heights. Broody, temperamental, filled with angst and drama.

I still love the Brontës, but the relationship between Heathcliff and Cathy doesn‘t seem quite as romantic to me now as it did then.

I have no words. My love for classical literature has has increased in masses, and I am amazed at what skill there was in the Bronte sisters. I wish I could travel to the past and visit some of the amazing authors which were present during this time. This book sent me on quite the rollercoaster. My love for gothic literature has grown - if even possible. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

#Pemberlittens this showed up in my Google News: Crisis Magazine: Wuthering Heights in a Nutshell.

Some twaddle about how "This happy ending serves as the final judgment on the novel itself, confirming that Emily Brontë, like the indomitable Nelly Dean, is on the side of the angels."

WTF! Wuthering Heights had a happy ending??? I'm off to read one about Pride and Prejudice.

Very well written but very bleak, a sense reaching out for the most pessimistic response to anything internal or external within the confines of the book. I can‘t help but think that Emily had a very sordid view on humanity and in life in general. I not sure if I would pick this one back up as I need to be lifted out of the lull this book has shimmed me into. If I had to pick my favorite Brontë sister, Charlotte from what I read thus far.

This last card is the three of swords; betrayal, heartbreak, and isolation. I don't know of any book that better encapsulates those words than Wuthering Heights! That being said, I do love this story - as you could probably tell from my multiple copies! 😃📖❤

Pip2 I am just finishing the book up today. One chapter to go! Very bleak and dark but a great story. Emily did a great job intermingling the characters with the plot of the story. I may have to read something a bit lighter thought after this one. 11mo

Wuthering Heights is a masterpiece of wretchedness. The book was relatively dark throughout. The few glimmers of hope or happiness were always quickly shattered by impending death or cruelty until the last 2 – 3 chapters. It was written well enough to keep my interest, but I was not sorry to finish this and move on to something lighter. If you like the macabre, you will like Wuthering Heights.

"The entire world is a dreadful collection of memoranda that she did exist, and that I have lost her!"

I finished this book last night and as soon as I turned the last page, the lights went out and a storm came on with rain. It isn't supposed to rain in March. But, I would like to think that the elements were paying their tribute to the genius of Emily and her love for nature.
I have read this book in @sharread 's honour for the #SharReadathon.?

truthinfiction It is a re- read and I couldn't really comprehend the book the first time I read it five years ago. But, I felt like a child again sitting by my window getting lost between the pages of a tempestuous tale fancying myself and the characters the chief occupants of the world. I fell in love with reading all over again. I felt closer to Emily as well. How her own private thoughts and feelings must have informed that of her characters'. 👇 11mo
truthinfiction I found myself lamenting her loss at a tender age and felt eternally grateful for the volume between my fingers. 11mo
LindaLappin a magnificent read. I like to reread it in stormy weather too. “I am Heathcliff“ are probably among the most powerful words in the history of English literature. I also love the way it starts out with Lockwood stumbling into the great kitchen and misunderstanding everything about the place & people. I love how it dramatizes inner conflicts, passions, and unconscious forces, not only thru the characters but also thru the imagery & setting 11mo
truthinfiction @LindaLappin thank you for your insight. Lockwood certainly deceived me the first time around with his hastily drawn and self- absorbed conclusions but this time around I was able to appreciate how that's actually more realistic since Lockwood seems to be a character entirely wrapped in himself and only able to care about others after establishing some imagined resemblance between himself and others. 11mo
LindaLappin @truthinfiction so true, He resembles his name.

I‘m really late to the party on this. No time for Litsy this week during training. Here‘s my take:
1. First read after many unsuccessful attempts years ago & had really given up ever reading it
2. Mix of all 3
3. No too many others I‘ll like much better
4. Meh to hated
5. Favorite thing: Emily kept it real about repeated family mistakes
7. Not really. Maybe it only is because of her sister.

I can understand why this is a classic. It‘s like nothing I‘ve ever read, but I didn‘t enjoy it. It‘s brilliant, but so dark and the characters are so disappointing. It‘s as though the hate draws out the worst part of each persons character. I‘ve heard it been said this is a love story, but for me it‘s a hate story. I‘m glad the end of the book was a happy ending for the few. Which I wasn‘t expecting because the book usually went the other way.

bookishbitch I agree, definitely not a love story. I wonder if the old movie version is what has confused people about that? Heathcliff was not a "bad boy". He was an abusive arsehole. 12mo
Suet624 I read this as a teenager and now I‘m a little concerned that I based my boyfriend choices on Heathcliff. 12mo
SarahBookInterrupted @bookishbitch I didn‘t know there is a movie, but that would explain it. And @Suet624 oh no, don‘t do that. But, maybe that is something to consider when recommending it for my children in the future. Wait until they are older and can really understand the dysfunctional relationships in the book. 12mo

My Review ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig WH is now on the It‘s Considered a Classic, I've Read It, & Thankfully I Never Have To Read It Again List.

I don't understand how people group Heathcliff in the same Catagory as Jane Austen's Darcy.

Heathcliff isn't an example of a Romantic Hero, he‘s an example of Crazed Obsession. If you like that kind of story that's one thing but if that's what you think love is I'm seriously worried for you. ⬇️

Bookwormjillk Very interesting. Thanks! 12mo
ravenlee I think “hero” itself is a problematic term here. We want the “hero” to be heroic, sympathetic, swoon-worthy, and a Romantic hero isn‘t really any of those things (necessarily). Whereas a romantic hero is the lead male character in a love story, and we want to feel all the feels for him. 12mo
TheAromaofBooks I also agree that while there is a difference between Romantic and romantic, the pro-Heathcliff people aren't confusing the two - they think that Heathcliff is actually romantic, hence the mugs haha 12mo
nanuska_153 @TheAromaofBooks I wasn't aware there are pro-Heathcliff people 😅 I assume some EMO type? Mary Shelley would get the digging of the grave for sure... 12mo
nanuska_153 @Crinoline_Laphroaig also following my comment above, I wasn't aware either that Heathcliff was compared with Darcy. All Brontë sisters have very toxic male characters in their novels, it makes you wonder what inspired them. In Wuthering Heights case, I don't think Emily implied at any moment that Heathcliff was in any way a man to aspire, same with Anne in the tenant of Wildfell hall, for example. 12mo
nanuska_153 @Crinoline_Laphroaig I agree that because the author is a woman the novel tends to be classified as romance by default without considering that it might be dealing with something different or more complex than plain romance. Just as Austen novels aren't just romance despite what many people think, even when the romance is a central part of the story they are more complex than that 12mo

This was a reread, I loved it the fist time and I still do.I find the writing mesmerising, the scenery amazing and the characters are so well drawn. I think the main reason why so many people hate it is because they are expecting a romance, maybe because the Brontë sisters that are always compared to Jane Austen. It's a novel about toxic people and toxic relationships, if you are interested in unlovable characters, go for this classic.
