    How about this one: love is incestuous, psychologically damaging, manipulative, violent, digs up your corpse when you die, and wants to be haunted by your ghost forever and ever?

    When Frances dies after giving birth to a baby boy named Hareton, Hindley descends into the depths of alcoholism, and behaves even more cruelly and abusively toward Heathcliff. Eventually, Catherine’s desire for social advancement prompts her to become engaged to Edgar Linton, despite her overpowering love for Heathcliff. Heathcliff runs away from Wuthering Heights, staying away for three years, and returning shortly after Catherine and Edgar’s marriage.

    Hello All ! I wanted to know a few links between the two famous stories of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights and the main themes that occur within both the novels.The first one that stood out to me was the descent into madness of both Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, imagining Catherine being everywhere and Bertha Mason in Jane Eyre being known as ''''Insane''''.What other links can be made between the two novel??

    1. Discuss the novel’s narrative structure. Are the novel’s narrators trustworthy? Why or why not? With particular reference to Nelly’s story, consider what might be gained from reading between the lines of the narration. What roles do the personalities of the narrators play in the way that the story is told?

    2. What role does social class and class ambiguity play in Wuthering Heights ? To what extent is Heathcliff’s social position responsible for the misery and conflict so persistent in the book?

    Wuthering Heights (1939) is director William Wyler's somber tale of doomed and tragic love, conflicting passions, and revenge. It is considered one of Hollywood's all-time most romantic/drama classics. Filmed with haunting beauty, it is the first film dramatization of Emily Bronte's wildly passionate 1847 best-selling literary masterpiece, from a screenplay written by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur (concentrating on the first two-thirds or 17 chapters of the 34 chapter book).

    The credits play over views of Wuthering Heights, an estate on the edge of the storm-tossed Yorkshire moors. [Although filmed in California's San Fernando Valley, its setting appears to be Bronte's somber, native wuthering (stormy) Yorkshire moors.]

    Being snowed in, he has to stay the night and is shown to an unused chamber where he finds books and graffiti from a former inhabitant of the farmhouse called Catherine. When he falls asleep, his dreams are prompted by this person and he has a nightmare where he sees her as a ghost trying to get in through the window. He wakes and is unable to return to sleep so, as soon as the sun rises, he is escorted back to Thrushcross Grange by Heathcliff. There he asks his housekeeper, Ellen Dean, to tell him the story of the family from the Heights.

    Because of this discord, Hindley is eventually sent to college but he returns, three years later, when Mr Earnshaw dies. With a new wife, Frances, he becomes master of Wuthering Heights and forces Heathcliff to become a servant instead of a member of the family.

    The Home not the buildings, that Wuthering Heights is not welcoming to strangers, one visits and is given shelter begrudgingly, and you will not be invited, but should you have to visit or stay hospitality will be given that is just adequate, there is no Family as such they are all disperate spirits, and on the edge of Society as indeed is Heathcliff. Thrushcross Grange on the other hand is inviting and warm and in the centre of things, including the Family and invites a person in even when they were not invited but tresspassing. The two counterpoint each other.

    Maybe talk about cliches, comparing W.H. to books of today, or of before Wuthering Heights. Good luck! :)

    In  Wuthering Heights , Catherine falls in love with a boy named Heathcliff, her father adopts. Their love is doomed, and both are forced to marry other people for money. Catherine dies in childbirth, and Heathcliff joins her in death after enacting his revenge upon the next generation.

    In Wuthering Heights , Mr. Lockwood narrates his visit to Wuthering Heights and recalls dreaming of a ghostly child trying to come in through the windowpane.

    An interesting question to ask, (and this is a question that you often hear fans of the book "Wuthering Heights" discussing) was WHAT IF fate had taken a different turn, Heathcliff hadn t run away that night, and Catherine had backed out of her engagment to Edgar and married Heathcliff, would they have been truly happy together as a married couple? One of the strong points about Heathcliff and Catherine, is their intense longing to keep things the SAME. They wanted their life together as it was at Wuthering Heights when they were children. They didn t want to grow up, they didn t want responsibilities, they just wanted complete freedom to be who they were, in the place they were, always. Nothing ever changing. Considering those fantasies were wrapped around their childhood together, what sort of marriage would that make for them? When sex is introduced into a relationship, it changes things. (Note that Catherine and Heathcliff NEVER had sex, they were literally kids right up until Catherine s engagement at the age of fifteen to Edgar) The entire dynamic of their relationship is going to change once they engage in sexual activity. How would they handle that? How would it affect them? And what would happen if a child is then introduced into the relationship? That, too, will change things tremendously. Will Heathcliff and Catherine view their own child as a enemy figure, come to change things from the way they are used to them? Heathcliff and Catherine historically haven t responded well to anyone who can be viewed as interference, no matter how much they love the person. They destroy EVERYONE around them in an attempt to protect that childhood oneness that they shared.even those they love. They are also well-aware of the difficulty of being together, the thorns in their own personalities. Read Chapter 9 when Catherine is trying to warn Isabella away from marrying Heathcliff. Some people reading the book think she is just making things up to scare Isabella out of jealousy, but that s not true at all. She loves Isabella, and she knows that Isabella would be making the biggest mistake of her life if she were to marry Heathcliff, and she s genuinely trying to warn her before it s too late. Read Catherine s description of Heathcliff in that section, and you ll see how Catherine really knows what type of person he is. She loves him, but she knows he s a monster. The question is.would he be a monster that could eventually drive even Catherine away? The only one to stand a CHANCE of being able to withstand him? Would they have been happy, or would they ulitmately have destroyed each other?"
