Transcript of Book review on Withering Heights

Emily Bronte
Wuthering Heights Savannah Harris
period 5 All the action of Wuthering Heights takes place in or around two neighboring houses on the Yorkshire moors—Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange. The time of Nelly’s story begins in the 1770s then ends with Lockwood leaving Yorkshire in 1802.

The mood of this story is serious and fantasy. The tone is depressing and dark.

Heathcliff- romantic hero, due to his love for Catherine.

Catherine- free-spirited and beautiful, but can also be spiteful, arrogant and childish.

Edgar-Catherine's husband. His breeding and wealth attracted Catherine. "It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now;
so he shall never know how I love him; and that, not because he’s
handsome, Nelly, but because he’s more myself than I am.
Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same, and [Edgar’s] is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire"
This is in paragragh 9 page 92.
