About the Author: Emily Brontë

Emily Jane Bront was a British novelist and poet, now best remembered for her only novel Wuthering Heights, a classic of English literature Emily was the second eldest of the three surviving Bront sisters, being younger than Charlotte Bront and older than Anne Bront She published under the masculine pen name Ellis Bell.Emily was born in Thornton, near Bradford in Yorkshire to Patrick Bront and Maria Branwell She was the younger sister of Charlotte Bront and the fifth of six children In 1824, the family moved to Haworth, where Emily s father was perpetual curate, and it was in these surroundings that their literary oddities flourished In childhood, after the death of their mother, the three sisters and their brother Patrick Branwell Bront created imaginary lands Angria, Gondal, Gaaldine, Oceania , which were featured in stories they wrote Little of Emily s work from this period survived, except for poems spoken by characters The Bront s Web of Childhood, Fannie Ratchford, 1941.In 1842, Emily commenced work as a governess at Miss Patchett s Ladies Academy at Law Hill School, near Halifax, leaving after about six months due to homesickness Later, with her sister Charlotte, she attended a private school in Brussels They later tried to open up a school at their home, but had no pupils.It was the discovery of Emily s poetic talent by Charlotte that led her and her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, to publish a joint collection of their poetry in 1846, Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell To evade contemporary prejudice against female writers, the Bront sisters adopted androgynous first names All three retained the first letter of their first names Charlotte became Currer Bell, Anne became Acton Bell, and Emily became Ellis Bell In 1847, she published her only novel, Wuthering Heights, as two volumes of a three volume set the last volume being Agnes Grey by her sister Anne Its innovative structure somewhat puzzled critics Although it received mixed reviews when it first came out, the book subsequently became an English literary classic In 1850, Charlotte edited and published Wuthering Heights as a stand alone novel and under Emily s real name.Like her sisters, Emily s health had been weakened by the harsh local climate at home and at school She caught a chill during the funeral of her brother in September, and, having refused all medical help, died on December 19, 1848 of tuberculosis, possibly caught from nursing her brother She was interred in the Church of St Michael and All Angels family capsule, Haworth, West Yorkshire, England.

    This is my favourite book I do not say that lightly I ve read quite a lot from all different genres but this is my favourite book Of all time Ever The ladies over at The Readventurer kindly allowed me to get my feelings of utter adoration for Wuthering Heights off my chest in their Year of the Clas

    I understand why many people hate this book Catherine and Heathcliff are monstrous Monstrous You won t like them because they are unlikable They are irrational, self absorbed, malicious and pretty much any negative quality you can think a person is capable of possessing without imploding They seek and dest

    I never expected this book to be as flagrantly, unforgivably bad as it was.To start, Bronte s technical choice of narrating the story of the primary characters by having the housekeeper explain everything to a tenant 20 years after it happened completely kills suspense and intimacy The most I can say is that to so

    I ve tried it three times I know people are obsessed with it I hate everyone in the book and I just can t care about a book where I actually hate the characters.And, sure, I get the interpretation that as terrible as Heathcliff and Cathy are, it s their love that redeems them, and isn t that romantic.No.

    Certain novels come to you with pre packaged expectations They just seem to be part of literature s collective unconscious, even if they are completely outside of your own cultural referents I, for instance, who have no particular knowledge of or great love for romantic, Anglo Gothic fiction, came to Wuthering Heights with the as

    O God It is a long fight, I wish it were over How can I find and put together the suitable words and write a review about one of the most iconic creations in World Literature One of those books that provoke such intense feelings that either you worship them or you utterly hate them There is no middle ground Every year, I revisit Wuthering Height

    Ah the classics Everybody can read their own agenda in them So, first a short plot guide for dinner conversations when one needs to fake acculturation, and then on to the critics view A woman 1 is in love with her non blood brother 2 but marries her neighbor 3 whose sister 4 marries the non blood brother 2 their 1,3 daughter 5 marries their 2,4 son 6 me

    If you think that spitefulness is romantic, and that people destroying their lives is dramatic, go ahead and read this book But don t say I didn t warn you.

    This is a review I never imagined I d write This is a book I was convinced I d love I just have to face the facts, Emily is no Charlotte.I m going to start with the positives The characterisation of Heathcliff is incredibly strong He is a man who is utterly tormented by the world As a gypsy boy he is dark skinned and dark haired, and to the English this rough, almost w
