world mythical world with her sister Anna
called Gondal. It was a response to a world her sister
and brother made up called Angria. Their father was reserved and since their mother died a year after Emily was born they often wrote to keep themselves entertained.
Her poems ranged from light to extremely dark; dealing with the horrible reality of human kind to the beauty of nature. She liked to talk about the horrors of religion, and how man will often make up their idea of God to benefit themselves. Wuthering Heights The only book Emily wrote. Was rejected to be published often, being for its strange approach on love at the time. It has become a classic over the years, reaching popularity when the author died.
It's about a love story between Catherine and Heathcliff. Poem Examples Sleep brings no hope to me;
In sounder sleep they come.
And with their doleful imagery
Deepen the gloom
Sleep brings no friend to me
To soothe and aid to bear;
They all gaze, oh, how scornfully,
And I despair.
Sleep brings no wish to knit
My harassed heart beneath:
My only wish is to forget
In the sleep of death.
