"Wuthering Heights, the only novel by Emily Bronte, traces the passionate relationship of Catherine and Heathcliff. Their affair ripples across the moors as it determines the fate of two generations of lovers. The "Background and Contexts" section includes selections of Bronte's diary entries, devoirs, and poetry. Readers will also find a selection of letters from Charlotte Bronte, as well as reviews of the 1847 and 1850 editions of Wuthering Heights. Bringing together a wide range of topics, the 'Criticism' section highlights the complexities of the text and analyzes the role of memory and trauma, animals, and Victorian domesticity. A Chronology of Bronte's life and a Selected Bibliography are also included"--
