The present work analyzes the phenomenon of Brontëan cultural dissemination, coined by Stoneman in 1995 in which the readers of Wuthering Heights have proposed new film, musical or literary sequel versions. In 1977 Anna L’Estrange publishes her own sequel to Emily Brontë's novel, Return to Wuthering Heights. This study aims to carry out a comparative study of two female characters in the Brontëan narrative. In more detail, we will analyze the character of Isabella Linton in Wuthering Heights (1847) and later we will focus on the parallelism of Margaret Earnshaw's story in the continuation proposed by L’Estrange (1977). Both writers link the two stories through the character of Heathcliff and his successor, Jack. E. Brontë focuses on the character of Isabella Linton, who suffers physical and verbal abuse. L’Estrange also socially denounces the mistreatment and rape that the character of Margaret Earnshaw must face. The purpose of this study is to analyze the social defenselessness that these two female characters must face and discover how both authors intend to claim the role of women in society and denounce gender violence through narrative.
