Description

I have just returned from a visit to my landlord the solitary neighbor that I shall be troubled with This is certainly a beautiful country In all England, I do not believe that I could have fixed on a situation so completely removed from the stir of society A perfect misanthropist s heaven and Mr Heathcliff and I are such a suitable pair to divide the desolation between us A capital fellow He little imagined how my heart warmed towards him when I beheld his black eyes withdraw so suspiciously under their brows, as I rode up, and when his fingers sheltered themselves, with a jealous resolution, still further in his waistcoat, as I announced my name Mr Heathcliff I said A nod was the answer Mr Lockwood, your new tenant, sir I do myself the honor of calling as soon as possible after my arrival, to express the hope that I have not inconvenienced you by my perseverance in soliciting the occupation of Thrushcross Grange I heard yesterday you had had some thoughts Thrushcross Grange is my own, sir, he interrupted, wincing I should not allow anyone to inconvenience me, if I could hinder it walk in

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, Fiction, Classics By Emily Brontë

Certain novels come to you with pre packaged expectations They just seem to be part of literature s collective unconscious, even if they are completely outside of your own cultural referents I, for instance, who have no particular knowledge of or great love for romantic, Anglo Gothic fiction, came t...

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, Fiction, Classics By Emily Brontë

I never expected this book to be as flagrantly, unforgivably bad as it was.To start, Bronte s technical choice of narrating the story of the primary characters by having the housekeeper explain everything to a tenant 20 years after it happened completely kills suspense and intimacy The most I can sa...
