The tale of Heathcliff and Cathy’s ungovernable love and suffering, and the havoc that their passion wreaks on the families of the Earnshaws and the Lintons, shocked the book’s first readers, with even Emily’s sister Charlotte wondering “whether it is right or advisable to create beings like Heathcliff”.
Replete with unforgettable characters and situations that have seared themselves into our literary consciousness, Emily Brontë’s intense masterpiece is one of the most haunting love stories in the canon of English literature.

Lets you witness the passionate and ill-fated love of Catherine and Heathcliff.
A truly iconic work of English literature, Wuthering Heights' themes of love, class, and money still resonate as powerfully today as when it was first published. In 1847, Emily Brontë invited the public to peek through the curtains of Wuthering Heights and witness the passionate and ill-fated love of Catherine and Heathcliff. Critics were initially baffled at how a novel filled with such dark places and wild brooding people could become so dear to so many hearts. Wuthering Heights is now regarded a masterpiece of English literature; its depiction of class and money stifling human relationships leading to misery and corruption still resonates powerfully today.
