Wuthering Heights is one of the '19th Century British Fiction Books' a contributor to Her Campus would 'Actually Recommend'.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontё
I had heard of this novel before but had never picked it up—wow, was I ever missing out. In this story, the trauma of losing parental figures pushes young Catherine and Heathcliff to form an intensely codependent bond. It’s not exactly a love story, and the characters aren’t exactly good people—in fact, both are deeply manipulative, violent, and jealous to the point of fury in different ways. The world Emily Brontë creates is full of abuse and torment, and Catherine and Heathcliff’s love is monstrous and mutually destructive. What I love about Wuthering Heights is that its characters feel so real and complex. There are several points where the trauma they endure, and inflict on others, is as raw and present as an exposed nerve. However long ago this novel was written, the emotions still resonate today. (Sapphyre Smith)
While El placer de la lectura (Spain) lists Heathcliff among 14 other badly-behaved characters. A columnist from El Mercurio (Ecuador) writes briefly about the 1939 screen adaptation of Wuthering Heights.

Critique Film (France) gives 2.5 stars out of 5 to Emily.
Mais qu’importent, après tout, ces écarts par rapport à la vérité historique ! Plus fâcheux dans l’appréciation de ce film par ailleurs bien interprété, tout particulièrement par Emma Mackey dans le rôle d’Emily, ce sont, en vrac, la trop grande longueur du film, le côté « je me regarde filmer » de la réalisatrice et le côté envahissant de la musique d’accompagnement. (Jean-Jacques Corrio) (Translation)
Trinidad Daily Express reports on the local events to mark International Women's Day last week:
An evening of love it was. Love among sisters who attended, love between women onstage and off. The joy of giving and receiving rose from the packed concert hall in a pandemic world in which everything is appreciated that much more, when, as Mr Rochester in Jean Rhys’ Wide Sargasso Sea noted about the Caribbean, everything is “too lush, too green, too fragrant”. (Dr Sheila Rampersad)
