"My greatest thought in living is  Heathcliff. If all else perished, and he remained, I should  still continue to be... Nelly, I am  Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as  a pleasure... but as my own being."  Wuthering Heights is the only novel of  Emily Bronte, who died a year after its  publication, at the age of thirty. A brooding Yorkshire tale  of a love that is stronger than death, it is also  a fierce vision of metaphysical passion, in which  heaven and hell, nature and society, are  powerfully juxtaposed. Unique, mystical, with a timeless  appeal, it has become a classic of English  literature.

Emily Bronte, the sister of Charlotte, shared the same isolated childhood on the Yorkshire moors. Emily, however, seems to have been much more affected by the eerie desolation of the moors than was Charlotte. Her one novel, Wuthering Heights (1847), draws much of its power from its setting in that desolate landscape. Emily's work is also marked by a passionate intensity that is sometimes overpowering. According to English poet and critic Matthew Arnold, "for passion, vehemence, and grief she had no equal since Byron." This passion is evident in the poetry she contributed to the collection (Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell) published by the Bronte sisters in 1846 under male pseudonyms in response to the prejudices of the time. Her passion reached far force, however, in her novel, Wuthering Heights. Bronte's novel defies easy classification. It is certainly a story of love, but just as certainly it is not a "love story". It is a psychological novel, but is so filled with hints of the supernatural and mystical that the reader is unsure of how much control the characters have over their own actions. It may seem to be a study of right and wrong, but is actually a study of good and evil. Above all, it is a novel of power and fierce intensity that has gripped readers for more than 100 years.
