Wuthering Heights
Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront
Wuthering Heights is Emily Bront?'s only novel. Written between October 1845 and June 1846, Wuthering Heights was published in 1847 under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell"; Bront? died the following year, aged 30. Wuthering Heights and Anne Bront?'s Agnes Grey were accepted by publisher Thomas Newby before the success of their sister Charlotte's novel, Jane Eyre. After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights, and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in 1850.

I read this novel long time ago. I forgot how terrible Mr Heathcliff was and how dysfunctional, violent, co-dependent these relations were. But thinking about the author, how brave she was to write in a novel about these topics was incredible and she was young. I think I need to re-read it in the future after maybe read more about the author. I will need, of course, another beautiful edition. I read the Thomas Nelson edition. 4⭐️

Gissy @Tamra I have various titles from the same special edition. I decided that I will read some of my special editions, when I die, many years for that I hope😜🤣 books probably will end in the recycle bin or in a charity store that we don‘t have many here. They don‘t read or have the passion for books as I have🤷🏽‍♀️So now is the moment to appreciate those beauties😍I really enjoyed that novel with that terrible character. I‘m glad I re- read it🤗 1mo

Because I'm an English Lit teacher there are an absurd amount of books I've reread an absurd amount of times, but purely for pleasure I've read Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry multiple times. I've also read Wonder by RJ Palacio both in school and at home with my own kids 💛

I've read some crazy books, but this was... indescribable. A good book, but damn were those characters horrible and some a bit dumb. Felt exasperated here and there. The things that went on, unpunished.. Kate Bush' song was perfect, it fit so well and gave me some much needed lightness to persevere. They're not pretty, but I do enjoy the Penguin Popular Classics.

Wuthering Heights is often discussed within the context of a timeless love story, but the novel also features many of the ghost story's enduring features. The story is told via the popular ghost story wrap-around medium of the faithful old servant.

This is probably one of my favorite classics. The novel was so well-written. I enjoyed all the characters, even Heathcliff surprisingly, but my favorites were Mrs. Dean and Hareton. The relationship between Heathcliff and Catherine was beautiful and yet disastrous. I was so engrossed in wanting to learn everything about Heathcliff, I couldn‘t put the novel down. In some sickly twisted way, I really enjoyed his character. Overall, wonderful read.

⭐️ Do you enjoy books that are moody? For you, what is a moody book? ⭐️

Tagged is the first book that came to mind. Pictured is my old paperback copy. My moody teenage self loved Wuthering Heights. Broody, temperamental, filled with angst and drama.

I still love the Brontës, but the relationship between Heathcliff and Cathy doesn‘t seem quite as romantic to me now as it did then.

I wish I could travel to the past and visit some of the amazing authors which were present during this time. This book sent me on quite the rollercoaster. My love for gothic literature has grown - if even possible. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

#Pemberlittens this showed up in my Google News: Crisis Magazine: Wuthering Heights in a Nutshell.
https://www.crisismagazine.com/2022/wuthering-heights-in-a-nutshell
Some twaddle about how "This happy ending serves as the final judgment on the novel itself, confirming that Emily Brontë, like the indomitable Nelly Dean, is on the side of the angels."

WTF! Wuthering Heights had a happy ending??? I'm off to read one about Pride and Prejudice.

Very well written but very bleak, a sense reaching out for the most pessimistic response to anything internal or external within the confines of the book. I can‘t help but think that Emily had a very sordid view on humanity and in life in general. I not sure if I would pick this one back up as I need to be lifted out of the lull this book has shimmed me into. If I had to pick my favorite Brontë sister, Charlotte from what I read thus far.

This last card is the three of swords; betrayal, heartbreak, and isolation. I don't know of any book that better encapsulates those words than Wuthering Heights! That being said, I do love this story - as you could probably tell from my multiple copies! 😃📖❤

Pip2 I am just finishing the book up today. One chapter to go! Very bleak and dark but a great story. Emily did a great job intermingling the characters with the plot of the story. I may have to read something a bit lighter thought after this one. 9mo

Wuthering Heights is a masterpiece of wretchedness. The book was relatively dark throughout. The few glimmers of hope or happiness were always quickly shattered by impending death or cruelty until the last 2 – 3 chapters. It was written well enough to keep my interest, but I was not sorry to finish this and move on to something lighter. If you like the macabre, you will like Wuthering Heights.

"The entire world is a dreadful collection of memoranda that she did exist, and that I have lost her!"

I finished this book last night and as soon as I turned the last page, the lights went out and a storm came on with rain. It isn't supposed to rain in March. But, I would like to think that the elements were paying their tribute to the genius of Emily and her love for nature.
I have read this book in @sharread 's honour for the #SharReadathon.?

truthinfiction It is a re- read and I couldn't really comprehend the book the first time I read it five years ago. But, I felt like a child again sitting by my window getting lost between the pages of a tempestuous tale fancying myself and the characters the chief occupants of the world. I fell in love with reading all over again. I felt closer to Emily as well. How her own private thoughts and feelings must have informed that of her characters'. 👇 9mo
truthinfiction I found myself lamenting her loss at a tender age and felt eternally grateful for the volume between my fingers. 9mo
LindaLappin a magnificent read. I like to reread it in stormy weather too. “I am Heathcliff“ are probably among the most powerful words in the history of English literature. I also love the way it starts out with Lockwood stumbling into the great kitchen and misunderstanding everything about the place & people. I love how it dramatizes inner conflicts, passions, and unconscious forces, not only thru the characters but also thru the imagery & setting 9mo
truthinfiction @LindaLappin thank you for your insight. Lockwood certainly deceived me the first time around with his hastily drawn and self- absorbed conclusions but this time around I was able to appreciate how that's actually more realistic since Lockwood seems to be a character entirely wrapped in himself and only able to care about others after establishing some imagined resemblance between himself and others. 9mo
LindaLappin @truthinfiction so true, He resembles his name.

I‘m really late to the party on this. No time for Litsy this week during training. Here‘s my take:
1. First read after many unsuccessful attempts years ago & had really given up ever reading it
2. Mix of all 3
3. No too many others I‘ll like much better
4. Meh to hated
5. Favorite thing: Emily kept it real about repeated family mistakes
7. Not really. Maybe it only is because of her sister.

I can understand why this is a classic. It‘s like nothing I‘ve ever read, but I didn‘t enjoy it. It‘s brilliant, but so dark and the characters are so disappointing. It‘s as though the hate draws out the worst part of each persons character. I‘ve heard it been said this is a love story, but for me it‘s a hate story. I‘m glad the end of the book was a happy ending for the few. Which I wasn‘t expecting because the book usually went the other way.

bookishbitch I agree, definitely not a love story. I wonder if the old movie version is what has confused people about that? Heathcliff was not a "bad boy". He was an abusive arsehole. 10mo
Suet624 I read this as a teenager and now I‘m a little concerned that I based my boyfriend choices on Heathcliff. 10mo
SarahBookInterrupted @bookishbitch I didn‘t know there is a movie, but that would explain it. And @Suet624 oh no, don‘t do that. But, maybe that is something to consider when recommending it for my children in the future. Wait until they are older and can really understand the dysfunctional relationships in the book. 10mo

My Review ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig WH is now on the It‘s Considered a Classic, I've Read It, & Thankfully I Never Have To Read It Again List.

I don't understand how people group Heathcliff in the same Catagory as Jane Austen's Darcy.

Heathcliff isn't an example of a Romantic Hero, he‘s an example of Crazed Obsession. If you like that kind of story that's one thing but if that's what you think love is I'm seriously worried for you. ⬇️

Bookwormjillk Very interesting. Thanks! 10mo
ravenlee I think “hero” itself is a problematic term here. We want the “hero” to be heroic, sympathetic, swoon-worthy, and a Romantic hero isn‘t really any of those things (necessarily). Whereas a romantic hero is the lead male character in a love story, and we want to feel all the feels for him. 10mo
TheAromaofBooks I also agree that while there is a difference between Romantic and romantic, the pro-Heathcliff people aren't confusing the two - they think that Heathcliff is actually romantic, hence the mugs haha 10mo
nanuska_153 @TheAromaofBooks I wasn't aware there are pro-Heathcliff people 😅 I assume some EMO type? Mary Shelley would get the digging of the grave for sure... 10mo
nanuska_153 @Crinoline_Laphroaig also following my comment above, I wasn't aware either that Heathcliff was compared with Darcy. All Brontë sisters have very toxic male characters in their novels, it makes you wonder what inspired them. In Wuthering Heights case, I don't think Emily implied at any moment that Heathcliff was in any way a man to aspire, same with Anne in the tenant of Wildfell hall, for example. 10mo
nanuska_153 @Crinoline_Laphroaig I agree that because the author is a woman the novel tends to be classified as romance by default without considering that it might be dealing with something different or more complex than plain romance. Just as Austen novels aren't just romance despite what many people think, even when the romance is a central part of the story they are more complex than that 10mo

This was a reread, I loved it the fist time and I still do.I find the writing mesmerising, the scenery amazing and the characters are so well drawn. I think the main reason why so many people hate it is because they are expecting a romance, maybe because the Brontë sisters that are always compared to Jane Austen. It's a novel about toxic people and toxic relationships, if you are interested in unlovable characters, go for this classic.

After reading WH I have opinions about the story which isn't fair to put on this edition. Will put review on a Classic Edition.

I have Marjolein Bastin of Pride & Prejudice (it too is not in database) and it's gorgeous.

On second time, this reads more like a psychological novel. An unforgettable story of revenge, destructive love, and disagreeable characters, especially Heathcliff with his all-consuming obsession, is a memorable, complex character. And the setting..it‘s everything, giving a haunting feeling and sense of foreboding. I also appreciate the way the story was told. It‘s full of drama, intense emotions, and shocking at the same time.

BookDadGirlDad I need to put this on my #tbr. Bronte and Austen are two that are bucket list authors to read. I've read Pride and Prejudice. Is this along the same lines? 10mo

ravenlee 2nd time; print; twice is plenty; disliked; can‘t find a character to care about in the slightest; I like the moor; Heathcliff‘s monomania; eh, the writing is superb but the story isn‘t, so I‘m on the fence; can people please stop calling Heathcliff a romantic hero?! 10mo
rubyslippersreads 6. The moors
7. Heathcliff and Cathy‘s relationship. Obsession, not love
8. A classic for the quality of the writing
9. I think this got labeled “romance” after the 1939 movie, which concentrates on the love “quadrangle,” omits the next generation, and includes a romantic ending (which apparently was added by the studio, against the director‘s wishes)

rubyslippersreads @ravenlee @Liatrek See my comment about the movie. The Hollywood version is much more romanticized. 😏 (edited) 10mo
CrowCAH Reread. Like. Classic worthy yes. 10mo
inthegreensandblues 1/2. Second read, audio.
3. Could revisit someday.
4. Enjoyed this time (hated first read 10 yrs ago). Better when not expecting a "great love story."
5. Best: Setting
6. Worst: Heathcliff ?
7. Classic for the writing and the audacity! That Emily is as mysterious a figure as any she wrote.
10mo
inthegreensandblues 8. I felt sympathy for Hareton throughout this time. I like his and Cathy's ending, that the family gets a chance for a reset after decades of Heathcliff's systematic destruction, and the failures of the whole prior generation. 10mo
Andrea313 1-2: Re-read, print 3. I'd like to read it again a couple of years. 4. Someplace between "loved" and "meh". The story kept me engaged and wondering. 5. Favorite thing was how atmospheric it was and how present the landscape is throughout - Emily is a solid writer. 6. So. Much. Melodrama. 7. Definitely a classic! There is power in the writing, and in examining the structure, and the themes of love/control/abuse. 10mo
Andrea313 8. The word I keep coming back to is "unrelenting". Emily Brontë doesn't give a shit about our feelings! 9. Yes, I viewed this differently through older eyes. I first read it in high school and it didn't make much of an impression. I think I didn't know what to do with it, after reading Austen and Charlotte Brontë- there was no love or moral integrity or anything to strive for here. As an adult, I really respect it as a full-on epic tragedy. 10mo
quietjenn Reread
Mostly Kindle, a little print
Doubtful, but you never know
Mostly loved it. It‘s so over-the-top, with everything is turned up to 11. And honestly, sometimes it‘s really nice and cathartic to hate everyone in a book
Setting and how Gothic it is
Original Cathy (how did she manage to get both of these dudes to be devoted to/obsessed with her) and almost everything about Heathcliff
Conflicted, but not entirely convinced
For sure

melissajayne 1) ReRead 2) 📱 3) Maybe, but I doubt it 4) 😶 5) I felt it was too long 6) Can‘t think of one thing 7) could have been shortened 8) yes it does deserve to be a classic 9) Fell flat at the end (edited) 10mo
AnneCecilie 1. Second read 2. Print 3. Maybe 4. Loved. I wanted to read what happened next. 5. Maybe the ending, that the revenge ends 6. Heathcliff 7. Yes 8. I started wondering if Heathcliff was born so revengeful or if it was the bullying by Hindley and overhearing Catherine say he wasn‘t good enough that did it. 9. Yes. I wonder how 20 something me could see this as an unhappy love story. What was I thinking? (edited) 10mo

IndoorDame 1. Reread 2. Print 3. Yes. In a few years 4. Loved 5. Gothic atmosphere 6. Naming scheme was confusing even on second read 7. Yes, because the emotions are so raw it keeps us coming back 8. I found the symmetry in the ending really satisfying artistically (though tragic emotionally) 10mo
Bookwormjillk 1. 1st 2. Kindle 3. Maybe 4. 😍5. Unexpected in a good way 6. The names! 7. Yes, maybe not on its own but as part of the Bronte body of work 8. Great pick for a buddy read 10mo
nanuska_153 1 Re-read 2 📖 3 Yes,I'll go for a 3rd read in a couple of years 4 😍 5 I love the writing, the characters and all the tea! 6 Heathcliff's madness, Hareton and Cathy being united by their love for reading and the ☕ in general 7 Joseph's speeches, whatever they were about 8 Definitely! 10mo
i.besteph 1.Partial reread (I dnf‘d it the 1st time 😂)2. Kindle! 3. Definitely no, read it. So I never have to read it again. 4. Hated 🤢 5. I couldn‘t get past the psychopathic protagonist 😖💯 6. Not a thing per se but I loved Nelly! 7. Joseph‘s gibberish 8. Personally no. 9. Predictable but kudos to the author. Everyone who read will come to hate Heathcliff and then sympathize him. If she could bring those emotions in a reader, she‘s written it well.

bio_chem06 1. 1st read 2. Print 3. Nope, read it now I never have to do it again 4. Hated, I found the writing confusing and just never got into it. 5. All the hidden meanings in the writing was great. 6. I can‘t time off a favorite😕 7. I think the fact a female writer of the time created a work of art is why it should be a classic, but I never realized I wasn‘t missing anything from not reading it. 10mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig 1st Read - Mix of Print/Kindle/Audio - Never Again - Hated It - Nothing but Unlikable Characters - Description of the landscape - Making fun of someone trying to learn to read - Classic in its example of crazy gothic - Heathcliff is no Darcy. #teamdarcy 10mo

Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront
post image
Pickpick

#wanderinfthroughwutheringheights #pemberlittens While this book is most often described as a gothic romance, it is anything but a romance. This is a story of a cycle abuse (physical, emotional, and alcohol). It is also a story about what happens when revenge is all you live for. Sad, disturbing, frustrating and worth the read. Oh Heathcliff and Cathy you both are just awful!
