Emily Bronte’s time-tested story of love turned on itself and the violence and misery that result from thwarted passion.
A novel of immense power, Wuthering Heights is filled with the raw beauty of the English moors and a deep compassion for the conflicting destinies of men and women. The novel begins with Lockwood, a tenant who takes up residence close to Wuthering Heights. His landlord, Mr. Heathcliff, proves to be surly, unfriendly, and rude. When Lockwood discovers a mildewed book with the names Catherine Earnshaw, Catherine Heathcliff, and Catherine Linton scratched on its cover, he begins to read, sojourning on a strange tale that proves irresistible. The heart-wrenching story he discovers about stubborn Cathy and wild-as-the-wind Heathcliff has been a favorite since its original publication in 1848.

"Half-savage and hardy, and free.”
Yes because it's amazing and tells the story well using voices to alternate points of view and time hopping.
Where to begin? The maddening love, the gothic atmosphere, the moors, the language used. It's perfection. I've always been more of a Heathcliff fan than any other literary man
The many voices (cast).
"half-savage and hardy, and free.”
Please record Tom Hardy reading it, he was a perfect Heathcliff in the 2009 miniseries.
