Overview

La poderosa y hosca figura de Heathcliff domina Cumbres Borrascosas, novela apasionada y tempestuosa cuya sensibilidad se adelantó a su tiempo. Los brumosos y sombríos páramos de Yorkshire son el singular escenario donde se desarrolla con fuerza arrebatadora esta historia de amor y de venganza, de odio y locura, de vida y de muerte. Catherine Earnshaw y Heathcliff desarrollan una relación de dependencia mutua a lo largo de su vida, desde la infancia hasta más allá de la muerte.
La libertad que Heathcliff representa no es la más idónea para una mujer que pretende ser respetable, y Catherine acabará casándose con el hijo de los Linton, Edgar, magistrado de la región. Éste le dará un hogar, la Granja de los Tordos, y estabilidad.
A lo largo de dos generaciones, cuyos nexos comunes serán Heathcliff y la observadora y narradora de la historia, Nelly Dean, descubrimos el pasado y el presente de los personajes, en versiones distintas de sí mismos.
En resumen, "Cumbres Borrascosas" es una novela arrebatadora y romántica, una venganza que se prolonga hasta el final y un amor que irá más lejos todavía. Es, en definitiva, una complicada tragedia que constituye una de las obras maestras de la literatura.

My Name is Mario Canizalez, i am a senior from Narbonne High School in Lomita, CA. I read this book and it shows that often times, authors will write a story using their personal lives and experiences to somehow influence their novel. According to the content of Wuthering Heights, a haunting love story, the reader learns that the author, Emily Brontë, was quite the romantic. Although she was a sensitive Victorian lady, Wuthering Heights goes to show that her thoughts and ideas were cruel and barbaric. In the classic Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë based herself, her thoughts, and her family members to fashion the characters and settings in her book. Wuthering Heights is a weather-beaten farm on the windswept moors in England. It is described to have ¿narrow windows¿deeply set in the wall¿ with ¿corners [that were] defended with large jutting stones.¿ The building seems to be based on a noble house, called High Sunderland, where Emily Brontë taught in 1838. Wuthering Heights also resembles Haworth ¿ an isolated Yorkshire village where Emily Brontë lived her entire life. Emily Brontë had a strong mind and was free spirited. She was different from the rest of her siblings and had a powerful imagination. In fact, her personality favors that of Catherine Earnshaw, one of the main characters in Wuthering Heights. Catherine had high, lively spirits and was occasionally cruel ¿ just as Emily Brontë was. Emily never made strong attempts to make any friends and once told her classmates that the school¿s dog meant more to her than any of them. Her harsh character very much relates to that of Catherine. In the novel, Catherine cried out to one of her guests, ¿I hate you to be fidgeting in my presence.¿ Emily Brontë certainly used the character of Catherine Earnshaw to interpret her own thoughts and feelings, as well as to reveal some of her fantasies. Catherine Earnshaw¿s obsession for Heathcliff, a homeless gypsy who later became a part of her family, might have been an indication that Emily Brontë might have wanted to have someone to love, but just did not have the social characteristics to pursue a relationship. The fact that Catherine¿s father brought Heathcliff off the streets of Liverpool and to his new home at Wuthering Heights may have reflected the time when Emily Brontë¿s father brought home twelve wooden soldiers. Even Heathcliff¿s appearance was described as having model configuration. He had ¿an erect and handsome figure.¿ Heathcliff also represents the English economy at the time when Emily Brontë wrote her book in the 1840¿s. The economy of England was so severely depressed that the upper and middle classes feared a violent revolt from the factory workers in industrial areas. By the end of the story, Emily Brontë allowed the character of Heathcliff to gain economical and social power. Another character in the story that connects to Emily Brontë was Catherine¿s brother, Hindley. Hindley falls into alcoholism and dissipation when his wife dies. He ¿came home rapid drunk, ready to pull the old place about our ears.¿ Although his family loses respect for Hindley, Emily Brontë allows the readers to feel some sort of sympathy for him. Similarly, Emily Brontë¿s brother, Branwell, fell into deep depression when he broke up with a lady he was having an affair with. He began abusing drugs and alcohol as his family, except Emily, became merciless in expressing their disapproval over his behavior. Emily Brontë uses Hindley to express her disappointment, yet sympathetic point of view towards Branwell. Emily Brontë¿s aunt, Elizabeth Branwell, influenced the development of the character Joseph. He was a tedious and self-righteous character with a Yorkshire dialect. Both Elizabeth and Joseph were very religious. In the story, Catherine turned ¿Joseph¿s religious curses into ridicule.¿ When someone sinned, Joseph would ask him or her to ¿say thy prayers¿and ask God¿s pardon.¿ Emily Brontë did not pay attention
