Wuthering Heights

By Emily Brontë
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Returning from Liverpool, Mr. Earnshaw brings with him a dirty, ragged, black-haired child called Heathcliff, and sets into motion a tale of destructive passions. The book’s two locations, the genteel Thrushcross Grange and the wild Wuthering Heights, serve as matching backgrounds to the characters of their occupants, as they struggle to gain the upper hand in marriage and power. All the while, the ghosts of the past seem to drive revenge more than inspire forgiveness.

Wuthering Heights was Emily Brontë’s sole published novel before her early death at the age of 30. Published under the pen name of Ellis Bell, a shared surname with the pen names of her sisters, many assumed that such a book could only have been written by a man. Reviewers of the time praised its emotional power but were also shocked at the actions of its characters, and most agreed that it was impossible to put down. After the novel’s original publication in 1847 it was revised into a single volume in 1850, and over time has become a classic of English literature. The story has been reworked into plays, operas, films, TV dramatisations and a ballet, and has inspired many further works of art, music and literature.

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“First time to read very Dark and Gothic Tale at the same time, The Story goes of how selfishness can bring to cruelty & unhappiness. the story theme so haunting , Most every Character is horrible, selfish and cruel. The theme usually about Insanity and Revenge. But, basically this story is differ from what I've read, Still recommended this book for those who love Gothic Literature because this is Masterpiece ,A tragic Love Story. Bow down to Emily Bronte.”
