Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights took the literary world by storm when it was published in 1847. There had never been a novel like it, and it continues to cast a powerful spell over readers to this day. This book takes extracts and examines them in close detail to explore how Bronte achieves her effects and to inquire into the significance of her characters and fable. The reader is taught to explore and appreciate the love-tragedy of Catherine and Heathcliff, the resonant images and symbols of the text, and the complex way the story is told.
