Product Description

Review

"Broadview Press's edition of Wuthering Heights, edited by Beth Newman, is a critically current and versatile text that includes solid primary materials and a strong introduction. Newman's stated aim is to provide a broad contextual understanding of contemporary critical approaches, and the finished product fulfills this objective. The primary material accompanying the text accomplishes two very important goals--rooting the text in important known textual materials, such as Bronte's poems, Belgian devoirs, and critical reviews contemporary to the text, as well as drawing attention to new historical materials, such as an essay 'On Brain Fever, ' which illuminates Catherine's medical treatment. In short, the edition is entirely usable and an excellent choice for the classroom or the general reader." --Terri A. Hasseler

5.0 out of 5 stars Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte 22 Nov. 2011
By iandliz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is so hard to know where to start with this book. It is renowned as one of the world's greatest love stories with the infamous Heathcliff and Cathy as its main protagonists but there is so much more to it than that. It is not only a story of unrequited love but also it is a dark tale of revenge.

The setting of the novel on the Yorkshire moors sets the tone of the story. It is dark, remote and the weather is harsh and unforgiving. The two households of Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange seem to have little to do with the outside world. There is none of the usual social whirl of dinner and dancing that other 19th century literature has. The cast of this novel are deserted and at one another's mercy. The book is also deliberately confusing creating a sense of unease in the reader. The narrator is a visitor to Thrushcross Grange listening to the stories of long-term housekeeper Nelly Dean. The names of the characters are hard to keep track of - we have Catherine and Cathy, Hindley, Hareton & Heathcliff, the Linton family and Linton Heathcliff. The driving force of the novel is Heathcliff, utterly destroyed by the death of Catherine and intent on revenge. He manipulates Hindley and robs Hareton of his birthright. But its not just Heathcliff who is the anti-hero. Cathy is spoilt and nasty, the young Linton is weak, disloyal and coniving. Love does triumph in the end with an unlikely pairing, but the reader is still haunted by all that has gone before.

This was the third time I have read Wuthering Heights. The first time was as a teenager when I found the language difficult and didn't really get to grips with the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great classic 9 Aug. 2014
By Katie85 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't always go for the classics but having finally read 'Jane Eyre' last year after persisting on and off for years, I decided to give another well-known classic a go. Loved the characters of Cathy and Heathcliff, I liked the setting of the Yorkshire Moors (one of my favourite areas of the UK) and the story whilst is something of a romance is surprisingly dark too. It has lots of things going for it. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. I was given the opportunity to read this as a teenager and I flat-out refused; I now regret that decision. I should read more books like this and it is a book that everyone should consider reading at some point.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Masterpiece 13 April 2011
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like most people I have read this book countless times over the years, and I know that it has led to at least one person being inspired enough to become an author themselves. I think everyone must know the tale of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, their all consuming love and passion that ultimately results in their downfall and destruction, and also that of those who surround them.

If you have never read the book before and only ever seen tv and film adaptations, now is the time to sit back and enjoy this free kindle edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably Not What You Expect 20 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Let's face it Wuthering Heights is not a love story. If you think it is, walk away and watch the Hollywood versions. This is the ultimate Gothic classic, dark, trecherous and menacing throughout. The bleak moorland setting is brought vividly to life with a cast of characters other authors could only dream of assembling in a single novel. How a preacher's daughter from Howarth could have come up with such an insight into the depraved activities of the (anti)hero Heathcliffe beggers the imagination. A true tale of nefarious deeds and revenge written in a beautiful and dare I say it, easy to read style makes this one of those rare novels that trancends time and maitains its relevance today. Remember - THIS IS A FREE BOOK - take a punt, have a go, what have you got to lose? You may be pleasently surprised just how good this book really is! But, beware Kindle Paperwhite readers - this is a lights on book. Terror awiats the screenglow reader mmmwwwwhahahahahahahahahahaha (Imagine an evil laugh) hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wuthering Heights 31 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a story about serious but real human dramas, interpersonal drifts, life turns and twists, psychological struggles and stark socio-temporal distinctions. The morals of this books are multitudinous, multidimensional and indispensable for every human.
The author is highly renowned for her elevated style and language, writing with masterly skill, and lively narrative.

Wuthering Heights is a bit of a roller coaster - huh?!
I always assumed before reading the book that Heathcliff was a bit of a romantic hero - wow, how wrong was I?! The guy is despicable and if he had been a real character would almost certainly have been locked up with the key thrown away! I really disliked Cathy #1 too - what a drama queen and a really nasty, shallow and vindictive person.
I understand that Cathy & Heathcliff's love is meant to be more passionate and consuming than 'normal' love but for me that doesn't excuse how hideous the characters are!!
This book is so original; the story is unlike any other i have ever read before but I don't like reading about people who I don't like!

5.0 out of 5 stars An oldie but a goodie 23 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A classic novel full of pent up emotions, gothic locations and complex relationships. This book has always been a favourite of mine. I love the imagery and the wild windswept moors that match with the turbulent characters of Cathy and Heathcliff.
