"My greatest thought in living is Heathcliff. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be... Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure... but as my own being." Wuthering Heights is the only novel of Emily Bronte, who died a year after its publication, at the age of thirty. A brooding Yorkshire tale of a love that is stronger than death, it is also a fierce vision of metaphysical passion, in which heaven and hell, nature and society, are powerfully juxtaposed. Unique, mystical, with a timeless appeal, it has become a classic of English literature....

Wuthering Heights, first published in 1847, the year before the author's death at the age of thirty, endures today as perhaps the most powerful and intensely original novel in the English language. The epic story of Catherine and Heathcliff plays out against the dramatic backdrop of the wild English moors, and presents an astonishing metaphysical vision of fate and obsession, passion and revenge. "Only Emily Brontë," V. S. Pritchett said, "exposes her imagination to the dark spirit." And Virginia Woolf wrote, "Hers...is the rarest of all powers. She could free life from its dependence on facts...by speaking of the moor make the wind blow and the thunder roar." This edition also includes Charlotte Brontë's original Introduction....

Published a year before her death at the age of thirty, Emily Brontë's only novel is set in the wild, bleak Yorkshire Moors. Depicting the relationship of Cathy and Heathcliff, Wuthering Heights creates a world of its own, conceived with an instinct for poetry and for the dark depths of human psychology.

The text of the novel is based on the first edition of 1847. For the Fourth Edition, the editor collated the 1847 text with the two modern texts (Norton's William J. Sale collation and the Clarendon), and found a great number of variants, including accidentals. This discovery led to changes in the body of the Norton Critical Edition text that are explained in the preface. New to "Backgrounds and Contexts" are additional letters, a compositional chronology, related prose, and reviews of the 1847 text. "Criticism" collects five important assessments of Wuthering Heights, three of them new to the Fourth Edition, including Lin Haire-Sargeant's essay on film adaptations of the novel.

The works of the Brontë sisters — Charlotte, Emily, and Anne — caused an uproar during their day, and continue to captivate modern readers with their vivid characters, passionate romanticism, sinister atmosphere, and feminist strains. This audiobook collects four examples of the sisters at the height of their powers. Charlotte is represented with Villette, a penetrating psychological study of a young woman teaching at an all-girls school; and the immortal Jane Eyre, acclaimed for its blend of social critique and Gothicism. Emily's equally classic Wuthering Heights unforgettably recounts the all-encompassing, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine. Finally, younger sister Anne offers a prescient tale of an idealistic young woman trying to save her brutish husband from himself in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Readers Hannah Gordon, Carole Boyd, and David Rintoul dramatize these masterpieces in high British style.
