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! :)
