What happens?
Language, Form, Structure
Chapter 25
- Edgar, weakening by the day and worried for his daughter and the estate, eventually allows Cathy to meet Linton on the moors.
Chapter 26
- Linton and Cathy meet: he is very frail and terrified of Heathcliff.
Chapter 27
- Edgar is near death. Linton manipulates Cathy to feel sorry for him and then brings her to the Heights. Heathcliff locks Nelly and Cathy inside until Cathy and Linton marry. Hareton brings food.
Chapter 28
- After 5 days Nelly is freed by Zillah and is told that Cathy and Linton have married. Cathy is permitted to visit her dying father and then Edgar dies and is buried next to his wife.
"should Linton be unworthy - only a feeble tool to his father - I cannot abandon her to him!"
"by the crossroads"
provoke me against him, Catherine, for he is very hard"
"I am a worthless, cowardly wretch"
"he seemed convulsed with exquisite terror"
"my life is in your hands"
you! Get up, directly!"
"It's odd what a savage feeling I have to anything that seems afraid of me!"
"I know how to chastise children, you see"
"Catherine, you are letting your tears fall into my cup! I won't drink that."
"I shall enjoy myself remarkably in thinking your father will be miserable"
"Have you never loved
in your life...Ah! you must look once"
"He says I'm not to be soft with Catherine"
"I shall be master of the Grange after him...it isn't hers! It's mine"
"He died blissfully"
"He had sold himself to Mr Heathcliff"
Both Edgar and Linton are deteoriating rapidly it appears a race but they are both as powerless as each other
Cathy and Linton meet at the crossroads - a symbolic setting since it portrays the choice Cathy is forced to make: the Heights or the Grange? She is undeniably growing up but the former option poses an ominious future, especially when considering her appearance in the opening chapters. The story is coming full-circle and it becomes clear why she is so scornful and unpleasant to Lockwood at first.
Heathcliff's manipulation of Linton is obvious in his extensive terror and the details of the harsh treatment is left as a narrative gap
However any sympathy evoked for the trembling child is diminished once he reveals his true nature to Cathy once imprisoned. He is indeed a coward.
Edgar dies a peaceful death because he is innocent of the awful truth about Linton's near-death state and Cathy's future at the hands of Heathcliff
- Linton's illness is presented as feminine, suggesting that Bronte is perpetuating stereotypes. Cathy and Nelly are imprisoned and disempowered and only released once the man, Heathcliff, permits it.
- Linton takes delight in materialistic ownership, as Heathcliff has taught him. Heathcliff equally takes delight in Edgar's degradation in that he will inherit the estate after his death.
