Acerca de


Emily Brontë appeared first in the literary world as a poet, but she is remembered even today for the single powerful novel, Wuthering Heights, that she composed towards the end of her life. The novel is a singular one and it stands outside the main current of nineteenth century fiction. Because of its peculiar nature it has given rise to much controversy. Some consider it a Gothic novel while others think of it as a novel of revenge. Some others find in it a romantic tale of languishing love. The dramatic way of narration by quoting the exact words spoken by the different characters, by mainly two narrators, Nelly Dean and Lockwood, gives the novel a peculiar interest. Besides, the portrayal of the character of Heathcliff, the protagonist, betrays a powerful imagination of the novelist. Like Coleridge, Emily Brontë has been successful in giving the esoteric world she has created, a touch of reality and credibility by making the supernatural a part of the natural. The novel is a story of two houses, at Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange with a vast moorland separating them. Heathcliff comes as a disturber of peace in these two houses and the peace is restored only with his death. It is not simply a tragic tale although there are several deaths in it. The novel shows that there are both good and evil in this world and that evil is ultimately won over by love. Wuthering Heights remains a powerful creation of Emily Brontë's imagination, and because of her originality and poetic intensity it is held that "she might have been Shakespeare's younger sister" (Westminster Review, 1898).
