By January 20, 2007

Follow me on:

Wuthering HeightsWuthering Heights is a Gothic romance, by Emily Bronte. In the novel, do you know who says: "he's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same, and Linton's is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire." Who says: "Be with me always--take any form--drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you!" What are the passions in this novel? And, how do they affect you?

Here's a review of Wuthering Heights, by Katharine Swan. Also, read the complete novel. Do you have favorite passages of the novel? Do you enjoy it, hate it, or could you care less about this work?

Wuthering Heights is the standard of all romance literature. Without it, there would be no bodice rippers, Harlequin Romances or Danielle Steele. What I love about Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, written By Emily’s sister, Charlotte and other Gothics of the era, are that they are torrid without detail. Ah, Heathcliffe! True romantic love without details of the physical that we know, nevertheless, is there.

Wuthering Heights is my favorite novel. The love, oh the terrible love! I read it when I was a senior in high school and have never been able to forget it! It is incredible! My favorite quote is the “he’s more myself than I am” quote. Awesome!
