'May you not rest, as long as I am living. You said I killed you – haunt me, then'
Emily Bronte, Wuthering HeightsWuthering Heights is the tale of two families both joined and riven by love and hate. Cathy is a beautiful and wilful 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's novel is a stunningly original and shocking exploration of obsessive passion.
Today I finished reading Wuthering Heights. It is a beautiful story. I love and hate the characters with as much wild passion as they love and hate each other. Emily's writing creates vibrant waves of despair and gloom that cannot but capture the imagination and send it into spiraling caverns of wonderment. I only wish Emily had written more, for Wuthering Heights is her first and last novel.
This is a must read for all lovers of classics, romance and trillers.
