Emily Bronte

Summary

Rediscover Emily Brontë's powerful tale of love, violence and obsession.

'May you not rest, as long as I am living. You said I killed you - haunt me, then'


Wuthering Heights is the tale of two families both joined and riven by love and hate. Cathy is a beautiful and wilful young woman torn between her soft-hearted husband and Heathcliff, the passionate and resentful man who has loved her since childhood. The power of their bond creates a maelstrom of cruelty and violence which will leave one of them dead and cast a shadow over the lives of their children.

Emily Brontë's novel remains a stunningly original and shocking exploration of obsessive passion.

'A dark and passionate tale of tortured but enduring love... Mesmerising' Guardian
