Introduction and Notes by John S. Whitley, University of Sussex.
Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries.
The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.
"It is as if Emily Bronte could tear up all that we know human beings by, and fill these unrecognizable transparencies with such a gust of life that they transcend reality. -Virginia Woolf"
"Wuthering Heights is one of the classics which has stood the test of time. I liked the mixture of large and small designs: there are plenty of designs which absorb hours and days, but plenty of smaller pieces which are happily completed in minutes rather than hours but which still give a sense of satisfaction. The paper used in the book is of high quality and colours don't bleed through from the reverse."
"The book is stunning ... a joy to colour."
