Wuthering Heights Published in 1847 - Author Emily Bronte died in 1848 -- believing that her only novel was a failure, Not until 1850 recognized ... Today, widely recognized as one of the great novels of English literature. After reading it again to help my friends son finish high-school, did it became one of my favorite books. It's emotionally, psychologically complexity of Heathcliff obsessed - obsession led to a hardness and a madness of mind and morals. Like so many -- by their own EGO -- This man rude, and as proud and cruel with Greed is Loved even recognizes as Catherines soul-mate. The desire to see his plan executes to the end, regardless of the cost to others, or to himself. Heathcliff, driven to madness by a woman who is not there but who is reflected in every part of his world--dragging her corpse from the grave, hearing her calling to him from the moors, escalating his brutality not for the sake of brutality but so that her memory will never fade, so that she may never leave his mind until death itself. This is madness, insanity, and there is no peace this side of the grave or even beyond -- because of ego.
