Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights is Emily Brontë's only novel. Written between October 1845 and June 1846, Wuthering Heights was published in 1847 under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell"; Brontë died the following year, aged 30. Wuthering Heights and Anne Brontë's Agnes Grey were accepted by publisher Thomas Newby before the success of their sister Charlotte's novel Jane Eyre. After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in 1850.

The book is set in 1801 in Yorkshire. - Lockwood: the most present tenant of Wuthering Heights. The book is presented to the reader in the same way it is presented to him, as an oral tale coming from the mouth of Nelly Dean. - Nelly Dean: Lockwood's housekeeper, used to work for the Earnshaws and later worked for Heathcliff. Her biases sometimes gave her story a shade of inaccuracy. - Mr. Earnshaw: the original Earnshaw was the father of Hindley and Catherine and adopted Heathcliff. - Mrs. Earnshaw: a very minor character whose dislike of the adopted Heathcliff passed on to Hindley in a way that made the tale much more miserable than it could have been. - Heathcliff: the main character of the story. He enjoys making people suffer and is bloodthirsty, but the reader does not hate him completely, seeing the tortures that he'd been put through and the love he feels for the first Catherine. -Catherine: was Heathcliff's best friend in youth, and loved him with a passion that couldn't be forgotten even after her death. She married Edgar Linton instead of Heathcliff, not for love, but for his status. - Edgar Linton: lived at Thrushcross Grange. Married Catherine and loved her. He had to raise a child by himself after her death, and died before he saw his child grow up. - Joseph: Heathcliff's extremely religious servant with a horrible personality and a love of punishment. - Hindley Earnshaw: Catherine's brother who treated Heathcliff brutally when he controlled the estate. Married a woman (Frances Earnshaw) who died young after having their child. - Zillah: housekeeper - Isabella Linton: sister of Edgar. Made a terrible mistake in falling in love with and marrying Heathcliff. His treatment of her was so horrible that she ended up running away and had his child, Linton. - young Catherine: daughter of Edgar and Catherine. She's forced into a marriage with Linton Heathcliff that lasts as long as his short life does. -Hareton Earnshaw: Hindley's son that learns to treat Heathcliff as his master. Starts out rough and uneducated by choice, but changes his ways when he falls in love with young Catherine. Their union gives the bleak tale a bit of a happy ending.
