Introduction, Wuthering Heights
Описание:The haunting intensity of Catherine Earnshaw`s attachment to Heathcliff is the focus of a novel in which relations between men and women are described with an emotional and imaginative power unparalleled in English fiction. First published in 1847, `Wuthering Heights` is set on the bleak Yorkshire moors, where the drama of Catherine and Heathcliff, Heathcliff`s cruel revenge against Edgar and Isabella Linton, and the promise of redemption through the next generation is enacted. This edition usesthe authoritative Clarendon text, and in a new Introduction Patsy Stoneman considers the bewildering variety of critical interpretations to which the novel has been subject, as well as offering some provocative new insights for the modern reader.
