Brontë, Emily. Wuthering Heights. London: Arcturus Publising Limited, 2009. Print.
Bronte uses setting to establish the atmosphere
She creates two contrasting moods through two settings; Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange
The lengthy sentences that describe the setting convey a dark, gloomy tone
Bronte's intense diction and imagery brings out the darkness of the settings
Wuthering Heights
Thrushcross Grange
A depressing mood is created whenever Wuthering Heights is described
“There was no moon, and everything beneath lay in misty darkness: not a light gleamed from any house, far or near all had been extinguished long ago: and those at Wuthering Heights were never visible,” (Chapter 12)
Thrushcross Grange creates a calm and peaceful atmosphere
“Gimmerton chapel bells were still ringing; it was a sweet substitute for the yet absent murmur of the summer foliage, which drowned that music about the Grange when the trees were in leaf.” (Chapter 12)
Examples:
diabolical
anguish
despair
horrid
lamentable
wretched
sorrow
resentment
Heathcliff Catherine Hindley Edgar

He has a lot of anger and wants revenge
When Heathcliff is around, the atmosphere is dark and negative.
When she was a young girl, she was happy and made the mood positive
After Mr. Earnshaw dies, she becomes rebellious and unmanageable
Near the end of the novel, Catherine becomes depressed and miserable
Catherine changes the mood from happy and young to sad a miserable.
Hindley has always set a neutral mood
When his wife Frances died, he was a disaster and the mood and atmosphere changed
The mood was dark and depressing.
Edgar is different from the other characters, especially those living in Wuthering Heights
He is elegant and a gentleman
The mood Edgar gives is positive and calm.
Catherine and Heathcliff- Although they love each other, they do not end up together because they are too different. They both die while still in love, enhancing the dark and romantic mood.

Catherine and Edgar- Catherine does not truly love Edgar, but they still get married. The mood becomes suspenseful and mysterious.

Heathcliff and Isabella- Heathcliff does not love Isabella and he is abusive and uncaring towards her. They give a fearful and terrifying mood and atmosphere.

Hindley and Frances- Hindley really loves Frances, but when Frances dies, it affects him negatively and causes him to treat others poorly. This sets a horrific mood.
