Wuthering Heights (Penguin Classics)by Emily Bronte
If you have read any of the classics but you haven't read Wuthering Heights, you should probably amend that immediately. It's one of the only books I was required to read in high school that I actually enjoyed.
Synopses & Reviews
Emily Brontë's beloved gothic romance, plumbing the dark depths of the human psyche with unmatched passion and drama
In Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë tells the story of Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange on the bleak Yorkshire moors, who is forced to seek shelter one night at Wuthering Heights, the home of his landlord. There he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before: of the intense passion between the foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and her betrayal of him. As Heathcliffs bitterness and vengeance is visited upon the next generation, their innocent heirs must struggle to escape the legacy of the past. In this Penguin Classics edition, a new preface by Lucasta Miller, author of The Brontë Myth, looks at the ways in which the novel has been interpreted, from Emily Brontë's time onwards. This complements Pauline Nestors introduction, which discusses changing critical receptions of the novel, as well as Emily Brontës influences and background.
