perhaps the most haunting love story ever written, was published one year before Emily Brontë's death in 1848 at the age of thirty. It is the story of Heathcliff, a savage, tormented foundling, and of his wild, doomed love for Catherine Earnshaw, the daughter of his benefactor. Set amidst the beauty and fury of the lonely Yorkshire moors, this novel of extraordinary imagination and insight has become a classic of English literature.
