Wuthering Heights Relationships - 1,568 words
Since the dawn of human thought, man has sought to define the relationships between all things surrounding him. He categorizes every living creature, labels every natural element and names every phenomenon. He then connects each object to another with a line and draws the line back to himself. This way, he feels omnipotent, confidently grasping the essence of his world in his hands. Such behavior seems to have peaked in the nineteenth century when many intellectuals around the world were pre-occupied with defining the relationships between man and the society, man and God, man and nature, and man and man. The preservation of order intrigued them and the concept of entropy frightened them. Ma ...

Storm And Calm In Wuthering Heights - 541 words
One of the more popular books by Emily Bronte is Wuthering Heights. It is simply about two houses, Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange, and the relationships between their inhabitants. Because of this well-known piece of literature, many scholars have commented on it.

Each house stands alone, in the mist of the dreary land, and the atmosphere creates a mood of isolation. Throughout the novel, there are two places where virtually all of the action takes place. These two places, Wu ...

Passion In Wuthering Heights - 925 words
F.H. Langman states "that the most important thing in Wuthering Heights, its central experience, is the love between Catherine and Heathcliff. What to make of it is another matter. The intensity of this particular passion which Catherine and Heathcliff display for each other goes beyond all physical and family barriers: She was much too fond of Heathcliff. The greatest punishment we could invert for her was to keep her separate from him, yet she got chided more than any of us on his account. (Ch.V Pg. 40) But in the eyes of the Lintons, Heathcliff has no right to Catherine or to the privilages of her class. He is a "gypsy", a "castaway", a "wicked boy, at all events quite unfit for a decent ...

Love is an affection of warm attachment, adoration, and devotion based on strong admiration, benevolence, and common interests. It would be anomalous to associate this pleasurable emotion with the ever so spiteful thought of revenge. However, considering the major themes proposed in Wuthering Heights, revenge is the most imminent of them all. It is the predominant factor that leads the protagonists to their dismal fate. Emily Bronte proves that there is no peace in eternal vengeance, and in the end, self-injury involved in serving revenges purposes will be more damaging than the original injustice. The theme of revenge grows from the ill treatment Heathcliff receives from Hindley. Hindley's ...
