Its portrayal of human emotions and relationships considered too dark by critics of its time, Emily Brontë s WUTHERING HEIGHTS has found a vast audience today. It begins with the possible sighting of the ghost of the former mistress of an imposing farmhouse in the north of England. The history of this mysterious woman and the novel s most memorable character Heathcliff is then revealed. It is a sometimes sordid tale, underscored with passion and revenge, but it is one that has intrigued readers for many years. WUTHERING HEIGHTS is the only published novel by Emily Brontë (1818-1848). Sister to the more prolific Anne and Charlotte Brontë and little-known in her time, Emily Brontë, long after her death, has achieved critical acclaim for her work.
