The Connell Guide to Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights

By (author) Bradshaw, Graham; Edited by Connell, Jolyon

Wuthering Heights is traditionally seen as being about the timeless romance between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw. That is the version made famous by Hollywood in the greatest film version of the novel, released in 1939 and starring Laurence Olivier. But while Emily Bronte is very much concerned with deep emotion in Wuthering Heights, it is not, argues Graham Bradshaw, in any straightforward romantic sense. Bradshaw takes issue with the conventional view of Wuthering Heights, arguing that this is a novel in which the characters are driven by forces and passions they don't understand and that Emily Bronte's dark, violent world is much more complex than most critics allow.
