Emily Brontė's novel is a stunningly original and shocking exploration of obsessive passion.
In this tale of two families joined and riven by love and hate, Cathy is a beautiful and willful young woman torn between her soft-hearted husband and Heathcliff, the passionate and resentful man who has loved her since childhood. The power of their bond creates a maelstrom of cruelty and violence which will leave one of them dead and cast a shadow over the lives of their children.
Emily Bronte (1818-1848) and her sisters Anne and Charlotte are acclaimed English novelists and poets. Emily is best known for her poetry and her sole novel, Wuthering Heights (1847).
