WUTHERING HEIGHTS

Hate is unfair. Love is even more so. The author died shortly after the publication of her only novel, which she signed with a male pseudonym in 1847.

She created one of the most important works of English literature, but she did not live to see it recognised. The characters of this moving story are related not only by blood but by place, where nature speaks as powerfully as the ghosts of ancient guilt. The stormy elements also stir the peculiar notions of good and evil with which Emily Brontë has so irritated contemporary society. Balladic and almost horror-like, Wuthering Heights is psychologically on a par with the greatness of ancient dramas. It tells the story of people who dedicate their lives to a destructive desire. The only woman who can stop the dark hero on his path of vengeance marries his rival. The obsession that transcends the temporary limits of human existence and the birth of evil are the driving dramatic forces behind the characters. Their story has rightly inspired both filmmakers and the world's theatres.
