Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront
post image
Panpan

No doubt this isn‘t a hot take, but I found this to be a horrible story filled with horrible characters behaving horribly to each other except for of course Mrs. Dean and Mr. Lockwood. Much like her sister did, I think Emily concocted a prototype novel of the modern paranormal teen romance genre. I‘m grateful to have experienced it and understand how literature evolved from the Victorian era, but I think I‘m done with the Brontë sisters.

What on earth is this book! It was a riveting experience reading Wuthering Heights, for such a sheer mix of contrasting emotions has rarely been amalgamated from cover to cover. Combine it with an almost perplexing and insane tale of unrequited love and it makes for one of the greatest tragedies in English literature.

Excellently written and the nature writing was stunning, but this is not a romance! I feel like popular culture let me down. Or, as Claire O'Callaghan said much better in Emily Brontë Reappraised:

“I felt that the level of violence Heathcliff perpetrates was hugely troubling, and I couldn‘t understand why this rather demonic male lead (sorry, Heathcliff- ites) was celebrated as a romantic figure.“

#taintedlove #littensdressedinblood #classics

melissajayne The Diving In podcast recently talked about the book and came to the same sort of conclusion. 2mo
ravenlee When I hear Heathcliff described as a romantic hero, I assume either you haven‘t read the book or I should worry about you. Also, Romeo and Juliet as the exemplary love story. 2mo

I don‘t know y‘all… I‘m just a Jane Eyre kind of girl I guess. This book was okay but it‘s the sort of story that leaves you nobody to root for, each and every character being reprehensible except the unreliable narrator and I just don‘t find it all that interesting. The Corrections by Franzen is another of this type that comes to mind, I hated that one more than this one, but had a similar impatience with both. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love Downton Abbey, so I listened to this audiobook because Joanne Froggatt who played Anna Bates was the narrator. She did a fantastic job! The story itself is deliciously Gothic, so dark. I found myself enjoying this version more than the print version I read in high school.

Not quite sure what to think here.

I liked how dark and dreary this story was, definitely not what I typically like to read. I didn't like any of the characters except Mr. Lockwood, Hareton, and young Heathcliff.

The entire middle part of the book dragged.... I really didn't care for the story of Cathy and her cousins.

But the beginning and very end of the story about Katherine and Heathcliff caught my attention.

3.5 stars.

Wuthering Heights brought out a lot of unpleasant emotions in me and I thought that was… FANTASTIC! Emily Brontë‘s characters get on your nerves and the story is so toxic and convoluted and that‘s how she intended it, so the more frustrating the read, the more successful she was in conveying her story.

This book was so different than what I had expected. Dark and gloomy and haunted, I loved reading about the Earnshaws, the Lintons, and the Wuthering Heights that saw everything. The only thing I didn‘t really enjoy was Heathcliff and the racist stereotypes enforced through his character, which is enough to bring this book to a 4/5.

As far as classics go, the story moved along rather quickly and wasn't bogged down with too much formal English of the time. It was like a soap opera where you pretty much hate everyone. This is romantic if you like people who make poor decisions then blame others for those actions and act spiteful to their loved ones and THEIR loved ones, too. It's not MY preferred sort of romance, but different strokes for different folks, I guess. I did ⬇️

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick laugh a few times at their absurd declarations of love mixed with heinous behavior. What can I say? I enjoy hate-reading! 🤣 The story begins with a Mr Lockwood coming to live at Thrushcross Grange in 1801. He meets his landlord, the broody Mr Heathcliff. Through housekeeper Nellie, Lockwood learns of the events of the properties inhabitants over the last 40 years or so. I can't imagine caring so much about the personal history of my ⬇️

I read this in high school and remember enjoying it, but I couldn‘t remember a lot of the details now. I decided to do a reread when it was picked this month for #thatsclassic - I think it‘s definitely worth reading and is oddly compelling, but I must say all of the characters are despicable people. Still, it gives off a certain atmosphere and it‘s definitely a different type of story for this time period. These oddballs definitely don‘t follow ⬇️

JenlovesJT47 The rules of society of their day. I think a modern retelling could be amazing (modern as in someone now could write a story without having to put taboo subjects between the lines like they had to back in the day but it would still be set in the same time period).

I have a soft spot for Wuthering Heights since it was the first (and for a long time only) Bronte book I read. Plus I grew up very close to Haworth and the Parsonage museum (pictured)... I should read more of the Bronte sisters really!

This book is full of terrible characters. Even the narrators make you question whether they are reliable. The love isn‘t tender or romantic, but possessive and consuming. Still I do love this one 🤣

Jess I wouldn‘t say this one is my favorite but it was memorable. “Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living. You said I killed you – haunt me then.

Finished my reread of Wuthering Heights for our April pick for #thatsclassic and I hate the characters as much as I did the first time 😂

I normally can appreciate unlikeable characters who are deliberately written that way, but it so well executed that I find nothing redeemable in them lol

I thought I‘d get something different out of it 10 years later and I‘d say my take was essentially the same

Second read and still don't understand why it is my mother's favorite book. I tried mom. Is Heathcliff a result of a liason between Mr. Earnshaw and another woman? Is that why he prefers Heathcliff over his legitimate children? Why is Nelly Dean so dependable to those three insufferable, bratty beings? Why is she so loyal to their children? Why didn't Nelly kill Heathcliff when he was hitting Catherine? Did Bronte cry when Miss Catherine died?

Scochrane26 I‘ve read this at least 3 times since high school. I love it, but everyone is terrible. Not sure why I love it. 7mo
KathyWheeler It‘s often referred to as “romantic,” but I‘ve never found it to be so. It almost reads more like horror to me. Everyone in it is awful, and I‘ve always thought Heathcliff was Mr. Earnshaw‘s illegitimate son. Picking some random kid from the side of the road and deciding to raise him never made sense to me. 7mo

KathyWheeler @Tamra I actually do like it — I think I just decided to read it as a gothic novel and I decided, as a teenager, that Cathy and Heathcliff were not my idea of romantic at all. I never understood why Linton put up with Cathy at all. Nor did I understand why Nelly Dean put up with any of them. 7mo
Tamra @KathyWheeler it‘s not a romance per se. Your gothic description is more accurate. It‘s tragic like Frankenstein, Scarlet Letter, and Ethan Frome. Favorites. 😃 What does that say about me? 🧐 I need to reread, it‘s been awhile and the details escape me. (edited) 7mo
Butterfinger @Tamra @KathyWheeler I did like Ethan Frome and Frankenstein. Maybe that's it. I always thought my mom liked it for the romance and I couldn't see that. She loved Alfred Hitchcock so I bet it was the dark pathos. 7mo

Well!
I think I would have been way more into this if I'd read it when I was young and full of ~emotions and feelings~ but now I'm a cranky old lady who just wants to shout at these characters to get over themselves and stop being such a bunch of hyperdramatic crybabies, seriously.
Definitely worthy of being called a classic, and I did enjoy it and I'm very glad I read it!
But my goodness, the drama!

#thatsclassic @Annie1215

j9brown #thatsclassic Guys did I miss something, why the hell was everyone just up and dying young? Was it because life was just too much for them and they gave up? I know that's not it but it sure seemed that way 😝 7mo
j9brown Also Nelly was supposed to be the voice of reason I guess, but she's just as bonkers as the rest of them, she should have quit that miserable job. I think she enjoyed the drama of it all. 7mo

Ruthiella Have you read Cold Comfort Farm? If not, give it a try. I think it is at least in part spoofing this book. PS I distrust Nelly! Sometimes her actions made the situation worse and we only have her word on what happened since so many of the other characters are not around to corroborate 🤨. (edited) 7mo

Time for our weekly check in #thatsclassic

How‘s everyone doing?

My question for you this week...
Do you find Heathcliff to lean more in to evil or romantic?

I guess there‘s layers, but I‘m dying to hear if there are different opinions on this one.

MsMelissa I‘m still fairly close to the beginning, but this is a re-read for me anyway. I‘ve never thought Heathcliffe leans towards evil, but I don‘t consider him much of a romantic either 😂 7mo
Annie1215 @MsMelissa totally valid! I‘d say damaged with a misguided sense of affection lol 7mo
j9brown Both! You can be evil and romantic at the same time! "Romantic" can be negative when it crosses into obsessive or possessive. I think at best he's got a streak of evil in him. I've still got a hundred pages to go, though, so I'll see if I still have the same opinion after! 7mo

MsMelissa Since Wuthering Heights is my favourite Bronte book, I guess I‘ll have to go with Emily, but I have yet to read all of Anne or Charlotte‘s books. The Bronte sisters are probably my preferred 19th century writers, but only because Austen‘s books are more aligned to the late 18th century even though they were published in the 19th. I like Gaskell, too. (edited) 8mo

reading_rainbow First read for me! Been on my TBR forever. 8mo
Bookworm54 This will be my second read. I remember enjoying it, but being a bit baffled as to how it can be called a romance! I read an interesting article afterwards theorising that it actually has some vampiric themes and it will be interesting to read this time, with that concept in mind! If anyone is interested this is the link https://litreactor.com/columns/vampires-in-wuthering-heights 8mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick First read for me! I think there was an MTV movie adaptation that I suffered through because of pretty young Hollywood at the time but I couldn't tell you anything about it. I don't know that I have a favorite 19th century writer. @Bookworm54 I am so here for vampiric themes! Thanks for staring this. 8mo
