Wuthering Heights is a literary masterpiece written by Emily Brontë and was first published in 1847. The story begins when Mr. Lockwood, a wealthy southern gentleman stumbles into his landlord Mr. Heathcliff, who lives in a remote farmhouse called Wuthering Heights. On being snowed in, Lockwood has no option but to stay back at the house, where the landlord's family and their mysterious behaviour troubles him. He then asks the housekeeper, Ellen Dean, about the family that lives in Wuthering Heights and their history.
The housekeeper tells him about Heathcliff's dramatic past and his eventual redemption. Going back thirty years, Lockwood learns about how Heathcliff was adopted by the Earnshaw family but treated as a servant. He learns about the landlord's undying love for Catherine Earnshaw and the resulting rejection that sends him on a path of revenge and destruction. Read on to find out how Heathcliff turns the tables on the cruel family and comes to terms with his inner demons.
Emily Brontë passed away at the young age of 30 in 1848, but not before she wrote one of the most cherished novels in history. The Wuthering Heights would be remembered as a young author's only published work and is today studied in depth by people, both young and old, in all parts of the world. Considered too racy for its time, Brontë was accused of not having written the book, but today is accepted for portraying socially relevant themes of inequality, love and betrayal, and vengeance. The author wrote under the pen name of Ellis Bell, and her real name was only revealed when the book went in for a second print in 1950.
