Nelly narrates Wuthering Heights
Earnshaw's
Linton's
"From the hour she came downstairs till the hour she went to bed, we had not a minute's security that she wouldn't be in mischief. Her spirits were always at high-water mark, her tongue always going—singing, laughing, and plaguing everybody who would not do the same. "

"Mr. Heathcliff forms a singular contrast to his abode and style of living. He is a dark-skinned gipsy in aspect, in dress and manners a gentleman: that is, as much a gentleman as many a country squire."
C & H grew up playing together in the moors of Northern Yorkshire
Heathcliff adopted into Earnshaw family
Catherine falls in love with her foster brother
A young, irresistible love which some say symbolizes freedom.
“Nelly, he [Heathcliff] is more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

"Wuthering Heights is a strange sort of book,—baffling all regular criticism; yet, it is impossible to begin and not finish it; and quite as impossible to lay it aside afterwards and say nothing about it. "
-Douglas Jerrold’s Weekly Newspaper
My personal favorite was the 1992 version by Peter Kosminksy
Sparked outrage in Southern England due to it's rash plot
