Introduction and Notes by John S. Whitley, University of Sussex.Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries.The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.

If you've ever come across the word "e;Wuthering"e;, chances are that either Kate Bush played over the speakers or you were reading the title of this very book, as nobody has used it in any other contexts since 1847. And while you should take that statement with a grain of salt, let there be no doubt that "e;Wuthering Heights"e; is a big fictional deal. After a supernatural encounter in his landlord's farmhouse - the titular "e;Wuthering Heights"e;, Mr. Lockwood persuades the former housekeeper to relate the story of her old master, Heathcliff. Adopted into the house as a favoured son, Heathcliff draws the ire of his half-brother, who relegates him to servant status after their father's passing. Brotherly tensions continue to rise, an impossible love blooms and Heathcliff ends up fleeing the household in dramatic fashion - only to one day return. A riveting tale of love, obsession, hate and revenge, "e;Wuthering Heights"e; is an absolutely essential read if you have even a passing interest in classic English literature - or simply need proper references for your Kate Bush songs. "e;Adaptations of Wuthering Heights"e; is its own Wikipedia page.-
