"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 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover
First published in 1847, Emily Brontë's classic tale of passion, obsession, cruelty and revenge has lost none of its power. At its heart lies the tempestuous relationship of Catherine Earnshaw of 'Wuthering Heights' and Heathcliff, the 'gypsy brat' plucked from the streets of Liverpool by her father. Their tragedy, with its terrible consequences for those who become caught up in it, unfolds in a wild moorland landscape as dark and harsh as the events themselves.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Emily Brontë (1818–1848) was an English novelist and poet, best remembered for her only novel, Wuthering Heights. The novel’s violence and passion shocked the Victorian public and led to the belief that it was written by a man. Although Emily died young (at the age of 30), her sole complete work is now considered a masterpiece of English literature.
