La épica historia de Catherine y Heathcliff, situada en los sombríos y desolados páramos de Yorkshire, constituye una asombrosa visión metafísica del destino, la obsesión, la pasión y la venganza. Publicada por primera vez en 1847, un año antes de morir su autora, esta obra rompía por completo con los cánones del ”decoro” que la Inglaterra victoriana exigía a toda novela -tanto en el tema escogido como en la descripción de los personajes- y con la conducción autor-lector impuesta por las obras serializadas. Diversas extrañas la calificaron de ”burda, desagradable y alarmante”, pero en ningún momento se dudó de la singularidad de su estructura narrativa y de la fuerza de su lenguaje. Son estos valores los que con posterioridad crearon escuela y convirtieron la novela de Emily Brönte en una de las obras maestras de la literatura universal.

One thing I've noticed whilst reading classics is when a chap writes a book it is supposedly fantastic, to a lot of modern day readers it can be as dull as a bag of daffodil bulbs, difficult to follow and after a while you feel like you are wading through sludge desperate to get to the end so you can say you finished it....I'm looking at you Mr Dickens. Because of this so many people don't give the classics a go. The few classics I've read written by Ladies (ladies writing books? outrageous, says 1840's me) have been a class above the others, the writing is so elegant, the characters are great and the words pull you right into the story. Wuthering Heights is stunning and one of the reasons why people really need to give the classics a go.

Emily bases the story between two houses on the moors …
