Wuthering Heights Question Plan
Transcript of Wuthering Heights Question Plan
How far do you agree with this view of
the novel? Catherine Earnshaw:
She is trapped by social expectations and life as she cannot do what she wants.
After death, she is seen on the moors with Heathcliff, fulfilling 2 lifetime wishes.
After death, a sense of a legacy is left behind, meaning that only the good is remembered. Catherine Earnshaw:
Her death is seen as self-induced which is understood as suicide, such an act is a sin and therefore her spirit is condemned to purgatory - is this not further entrapment?
Not every life is torturous, arguably, individuals like Mr Earnshaw and Edgar had relatively simple and happy lives. Rather than a welcome release from the tortures of living, death is seen as an escape from unsolvable situations. (This refers back to the first two 'slides'
about agreeing and disagreeing with the
statement) From a historical/religious point of view, suicide which presumably is the cause of death for Catherine and Heathcliff, is a sin and therefore death would not be a welcome release due to the punishment that awaits them (Look at the death of Catherine for some AO2 analysis; could also look at the scenes of other deaths)
