Plot and critical notes of Wuthering heights (E. Bronte) (1 pagine formato doc)
Wuthering Heights, wrote by Emily Bronte, was published in 1847.
It was her only novel and her masterpiece and was a highly imaginative and dramatic presentation of a tragic story. However it was not an immediate success because was considered by some critics and readers too violent, morbid, wild, immoral and brutal. The novel revolves around the two houses, Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange, respectively inhabited by the Earnshaws and the Lintons. The plot of Wuthering Heights starts in a conversation with Mrs Dean, the housekeeper at the Grange and former servant at Wuthering Heights, Mr Lockwood learns the story of the two families, and reports in the diary that he writes to himself. Thus the book begins with the end of the story, and presents two-first person narrators: the housekeeper, who witnesses the events and tells them to Mr Lockwood, and Mr Lockwood himself, who reports in his diary both what he hears from her and what he actually sees in his visits to Wuthering Heights..
