    Books- Wuthering Heights An author's particular style and technique, is usually greatly attributed to their personality and individual preference. In the case of Emily Bronte, she was an extremely withdrawn and private person; and it is because of this, why she turned to books as a form of expression. In her notorious Wuthering Heights, she uses books as an important way to illustrate a number of key issues; most notably character, and the theme of love. Although subtle in her method, Bronte passion is what she employs as a tool in the construction of the epic tale. In the novel Wuthering Heights, the first time we are given reference to books is during chapter 3, prior to Lockwood's nightma ...

    Love In Wuthering Heights Love and Lovability "There is no character in Wuthering Heights who is completely lovable, who wins our sympathy completely."(Bloom 99) Love, in one way or another is the force which makes people unlikable. In Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, people's adoration for one another is the reason why no character is completely lovable. Receiving too much attention spoiled Catherine Earnshaw. Heathcliff was disliked because he had to grow up without a real family to love him. Finally, Hindley turned into a pitiful man because of the love that he lost. For some, affection can change people for the better, but for others love can be a poison for their souls. Being the only ...

Also that all our striving here on earth amounts to nothing, and it is not until we are dead and face to face with our creator that we shall find our happiness or doom.

The difference between that feeling that Catherine has for Heathcliff and the one she feels for Linton is that Heathcliff is a part of her nature while Edgar is only a part of her superficial love. It is a spiritual lov ...

    Wuthering Heights The Power of Fate Fate, a term which seems to appear every so often in the everyday world, can be a powerful force when dealing with the predetermination of events. Whether in the past, present or future, fate can change how things were, or are supposed to be. As William Jennings Byran, a famous military colonel, once said, "Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is not a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing which is to happen." Fate cannot be altered and is something which must happen to everyone and everything. As is the case with Thomas Hardy's novel, Return of the Native. Without the element of fate, the plot of Return of the Native would h ...

    Wuthering Heights When Wuthering Heights was published it was blasted its contemporaries as obscene.
