My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Wuthering Heights Bronte
My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Healthcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.

About the Book

The only novel of Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights is a gothic romance set in Yorkshire revolving around the relationship of the main characters Catherine and Heathcliff. At the time of publication, the stark cruelty in the novel challenged the prevailing Victorian morality of the day, so reception was very mixed. Today however, Wuthering Heights is widely considered a classic of English literature.
