What are some of the best words that describe the classic novel Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte? I know for me dark, disturbing, and sad would definitely be among them and I’m sure many people would agree. However, despite its tumultuous narrative Wuthering Heights has been a great favorite of mine ever since I read it for the first time. I’d like to share my favorite quote and perhaps if anyone has suggestions as to which part of the novel they loved the most I’d be glad to hear them!
“ Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest, as long as I am living! You said I killed you – haunt me, then! … Be with me always – take any form – drive me mad! Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!” (Heathcliff upon finding Catherine is dead, Vol. II Chapt. II)
If you’ve never read this book then this excerpt will hopefully help you see why I love it. Perhaps two more words can be produced to describe this novel: Pure passion!
Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes has made thousands from all over the globe fall in love with the windmill chasing, seemingly insane Don Quixote and his sturdy sidekick Sancho Panza. I love Don Quixote’s chivalry – even if it seems at times outdated and absurd. Here are three fun facts about the novel to help you brush up on your Don Quixote knowledge :
- The 1st volume was published in 1605 (Wow! That’s old!)
- Don Quixote was written in Castellano as opposed to Latin (which was the language of the educated elite). This gave Castellano (considered the language of the common people) more importance.
- Don Quixote represents and antihero in that he is the total opposite of what we would consider a ‘hero’ (but we love him all the same!).
- Miguel Cervantes wrote Don Quixote in order to make fun of the chivalric novels which were extremely popular at the time.
If you really want to brush up on your knowledge, there’s no better way than dusting off that old copy of the novel (I know you’ve stashed it somewhere!) and re-reading it. Enjoy!
