"Ideal for the college survey course: judicious introduction plus just the right admixture of explanatory notes (vital for American students' comprehension of dialect words), up-to-date bibliography, and several other brief, indispensable supports to well-informed reading." --Katherine Linehan, Oberlin College

'As a first novel, there is very little that can compare to it. Even Shakespeare took over a decade to reach the clifftop extremities of King Lear'

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 Jane Bronte was born July 30, 1818, at Thornton in Yorkshire, the fifth of six children of Patrick and Maria Bronte. Although Emily did spend a few short times away from Haworth, it was her primary residence and the rectory where she resided now serves as a Bronte Museum. Emily's only close friends were her brother Branwell and her sisters Charlotte and Anne. Emily died of tuberculosis on December 19, 1848, also at the age of thirty, and never knew the great success of her only novel Wuthering Heights, which was published almost exactly a year before her death.
