'This is the story of a savage, tormented foundling, Heathcliff, who falls wildly in love with Catherine Earnshaw, the daughter of his benefactor, and of the violence and misery that result from their thwarted longing for each other.' Great characters would display emotions that none of us would easily create ourselves, and show us meanings which are hard to decipher. Before reading WUTHERING HEIGHTS, I had no notion of a love greater than Heathcliff's, of how much a human can love another besides himself. It has shown me that with love comes a frailty and an understanding of what cannot and can be.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
