Tonight, we’ll be reading, "Wuthering Heights"published in 1847, it was Emily Brontë's only novel. Early critics were mixed in their assessment and many were puzzled by the novel's multiple narrators and non-chronological structure. Much of the Victorian public believed the novel was written by a man based on the violent and passionate imagery. Even though the novel received mixed reviews when it came out, it has since become an English literary classic, and tells the tale of a tempestuous romance between Heathcliff, an orphan, and Catherine Earnshaw who becomes his close companion.
