Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights

( 1 )

Overview

Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights has long held a high position in the academy and in popular culture.

Overview

Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights has long held a high position in the academy and in popular culture. It is taught at levels from high school English to doctoral studies and has been adapted in enough film and television versions that many students who know nothing about the book know who Heathcliff is. Nevertheless it is not an easy novel to teach. Thus in addition to surveying experienced teachers of Wuthering Heights, the editors sought to learn directly from students what in the novel was difficult for them and what worked best in engaging their interest. Part 1 of this Approaches volume, "Materials," surveys and assesses the available editions of Wuthering Heights, reviews biographies and other background materials, notes the critical studies most frequently mentioned as useful by instructors, and provides an annotated list of resources on the Internet.

Among the classroom strategies described in part 2, "Approaches," are the following:
  • Uncovering the hidden elements of race, gender, and class through close analysis of the narrative
  • Teaching the novel from the vantage point of gothic conventions, biographies of Brontë family members, and the debates about the place of the novel in the canon
  • Familiarizing students with historical and legal documents to reveal social and economic issues of the period like child custody and women's property rights
  • Comparing film and TV adaptations with one another and with the novel itself
