About the book:

Emily Brontė's beloved gothic romance, plumbing the dark depths of the human psyche with unmatched passion and drama

In Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontė tells the story of Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange on the bleak Yorkshire moors, who is forced to seek shelter one night at Wuthering Heights, the home of his landlord. There he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before: of the intense passion between the foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and her betrayal of him. As Heathcliffs bitterness and vengeance is visited upon the next generation, their innocent heirs must struggle to escape the legacy of the past. In this Penguin Classics edition, a new preface by Lucasta Miller, author of The Brontė Myth, looks at the ways in which the novel has been interpreted, from Emily Brontė's time onwards. This complements Pauline Nestors introduction, which discusses changing critical receptions of the novel, as well as Emily Brontės influences and background.
