  • Heathcliffs Obsession - 1,163 words
    Heathcliff's Obsession Heathcliff's Obsession Throughout Wuthering Heights, Heathcliff's personality could be defined as dark, menacing, and brooding. He is a dangerous character, with rapidly changing moods, capable of deep-seeded hatred, and incapable, it seems, of any kind of forgiveness or compromise. In the first 33 chapters, the text clearly establishes Heathcliff as an untamed, volatile, wild man and establishes his great love of Catherine and her usage of him as the source of his ill humour and resentment towards many other characters. However, there are certain tensions, contradictions, and ambiguities present in Chapter 34 that establish the true intensity Heathcliff's feelings tow ...

  • In Her Mothers Image - 376 words
    In Her Mothers Image At the beginning of Wuthering Heights Lockwoode makes a mistake in assuming that young Catherine II was Heathcliffes wife. It is easy to see how he, a stranger unfamiliar with the Earnshaw-Linton family history could have made such a mistake. But, had Lockwoode known about the life of the woman Heathcliffe had always wanted to marry, Catherine I, and then have been able to compare it to life of her daughter, Catherine II, he would never have been able to make that mistake, for the lives of the mother and daughter were as different as night and day. To start, Heathcliffe, the current master of the house in which Lockwoode was staying, loved Catherine I more than anything ...

  • Internet Censorship - 930 words
    Internet Censorship In the late winter months of 1801, a man named Lockwood rents a manor house called Thrushcross Grange in the isolated moor country of England. Here, he meets his dour landlord, Heathcliff, a wealthy man who lives in the ancient manor of Wuthering Heights, four miles away from the Grange, but otherwise isolated in the moors. In this wild, stormy countryside, Lockwood asks his housekeeper, Nelly Dean, to tell him the story of Heathcliff and the strange denizens of Wuthering Heights. Nelly consents, and Lockwood writes down his recollections of her tale in his diary; those written recollections form the great majority of Wuthering Heights. When Nelly was a young girl, she wa ...

  • Medea - 513 words
    Medea Literary Criticism Summary According to the editor Currer Bell, the novel Wuthering Heights may seem rather crude and unintelligible to those who know nothing of the author. Strangers who are unacquainted with the setting where the story takes place, or who are unfamiliar with the customs of the time may also look at Wuthering Heights with a critical eye. To all such Wuthering Heights must appear a rude and strange production (Bell 5). Readers may feel that the manners, language, and the very dwellings of the characters are somewhat repulsive (Bell 5). People who are perhaps calm and collected will have no idea what to make of the rough, strong utterance, the harshly manifested passion ...

    Wutherin Heights Through the duration of Heathcliffs life, he encounters many tumultuous events that affects him as a person and transforms his rage deeper into his soul, for which he is unable to escape his nature.

When Mr. Earnshaw brings him to Wuthering Heights, he is viewed as a thing rather than a child. Mrs. Earnshaw was ready to fling it out the doors, while Nelly put it on the landing of the stairs hoping that it would be gone the next day. Without having done anything to deserve rejection, Heathcliff is made to feel like an outsider. Following the death of Mr. ...

    Wuthering Heights When Wuthering Heights was published it was blasted its contemporaries as obscene. They railed that Catherine and Heathcliff were the most immoral and in general worst people they had ever had the misfortune of reading about. Although Wuthering Heights has taken it's rightful place as masterwork of 19th century literature and Emily Bront has receive credit for her work, it is still possible to see where the early attacks are based. Heathcliff especially behaves in a very obtuse manner. The basis for this behavior is Heathcliff's bizarre love/hate relationship with Catherine. His frustrated desire to be with her causes him deep personal pain, which he transfers to other char ...

    Wuthering Heights The setting and descriptions of Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange that Emily Bront uses throughout her novel, Wuthering Heights, helps to set the mood for describing Heathcliff and Cathy. The cold, muddy, and barren moors separate the two households. Each house stands alone, in the midst of the dreary land, but the atmospheres of the two estates are quite different. This difference helps explain the personalities and bond of Cathy and Heathcliff. Wuthering Heights, which represents Hell, is always in a state of storminess. The Heights and its surroundings depict the coldness, darkness, and evil associated with Hell. This parallels Heathcliff. He symbolizes the cold, ...

  • Wuthering Heights And Great Expectations - 856 words
    Wuthering Heights And Great Expectations Throughout the years authors have written many great stories. Wuthering Heights, written by Emily Bronte, and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens are two examples of great stories. Both of these stories can be set off and paralleled to the other. The setting, time era, and lovers relationships are the elements of comparison and differentiation. The settings, in which the two stories take place, influence the people and the situations that occur. In Brontes Wuthering Heights, the small town of Liverpool is the setting. The Earnshaw family is not as well off as the Lintons. This is compared to the small town off the ocean where Pip and Estella live. ...

  • Wuthering Heights And Power Of Love - 1,262 words
    Wuthering Heights And Power Of Love Many readers argue that Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte is anything but a romance. Although it does not follow the conventional form of the Victorian Romance novels, it can be argued that it is one of the greatest love stories of all time. The traditional forms of love may not be represented in this story, but one can not argue that love is the predominant theme throughout the book. What else but love could possibly drive the characters to the ends which they accomplish. The most controversial and the predominant love represented in this novel is that of spiritual love. This form of love is the one shared between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw Linton ...

    Wuthering Heights By Bronte I would like to analyze the conflicts that Heathcliff faced throughout the novel Wuthering Heights. Heithcliffs character was very complex. He lived a troubled childhood that is never completely revealed to the reader. All we know is that he was abandoned at a young age and when Mr. Earnshaw discovered him, he was sickly looking. Heathclfidd was then brought to live in this brand new society at Wuthering Heights. Hindly, Mr. Earnshaws son, was jealous of Heathcliff from the start because he felt that his father loved Heathcliff more than himself. Hindlys hatred for Heathcliff was worsened once he realized that he and Cathy had fallen in love. To protect his siste ...

    Wuthering Heights By Bronte Throughout the novel Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte effectively utilizes weather and setting as methods of conveying insight to the reader of the personal feeling of the characters. While staying at Thrushcross Grange, Mr. Lockwood made a visit to meet Mr. Heathcliff for a second time, and the horrible snow storm that he encounters is the first piece of evidence that he should have perceived about Heathcliff's personality. The setting of the moors is one that makes them a very special place for Catherine and Heathcliff, and they are thus very symbolic of their friendship and spirts. The weather and setting are very effective tools used throughout the end of the ...
