Part of the Vintage Classics Bronte Series: three sisters, three major novels, beautifully designed.
Wuthering Heights is the tale of two families both joined and riven by love and hate. Cathy is a beautiful and wilful young woman torn between her soft-hearted husband and Heathcliff, the passionate and resentful man who has loved her since childhood. The power of their bond creates a maelstrom of cruelty and violence which will leave one of them dead and cast a shadow over the lives of their children. Emily Brontë's novel is a stunningly original and shocking exploration of obsessive passion.
Wuthering Heights Paperback edition by Emily Bronte
Emily Bronte was born on 30 July 1818. Her father was curate of Haworth, Yorkshire, and her mother died when she was five years old, leaving five daughters and one son. In 1824 Charlotte, Maria, Elizabeth and Emily were sent to Cowan Bridge, a school for clergymen's daughters, where Maria and Elizabeth both caught tuberculosis and died. The children were taught at home from this point on and together they created vivid fantasy worlds which they explored by writing stories. Emily worked briefly as a teacher in 1938 but soon returned home. In 1846, Emily's poems were published alongside those of her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, in Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell. The following year Wuthering Heights was published. Emily Bronte died of consumption on 19 December 1848.

A passionate story of the love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. The story's action is chaotic and violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the descriptions of the moorland setting and the poetic grandeur combined to make this novel a masterpiece of English literature.
Intense relationship between the gypsy foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw; and how Catherine, forced to choose between passionate, tortured Heathcliff and gentle, well-bred Edgar Linton, surrendered to the expectations of her class.
Wuthering Heights is one of the most famous love stories in the English language, and a potent tale of revenge. This new edition explores its extraordinary power and unique style and narrative structure, and includes a selection of poems by Emily Bronte.
As darkness falls, a man caught in a snowstorm is forced to shelter at the strange, grim house Wuthering Heights. It is a place he will never forget. There he will come to learn the story of Cathy: how she was forced to choose between her well-meaning husband and the dangerous man she had loved since she was young.
Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange on bleak Yorkshire moors, is forced to seek shelter one night at Wuthering Heights, the home of his landlord. There he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before: of the intense passion between the foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and her betrayal of him.
The poems of Emily Jane Bronte are passionate and powerful works that convey the vitality of the human spirit and of the natural world. This book contains poems attributed to her that describe the mythic country of Gondal and its citizens that she imagined with Anne, and remain the only surviving record of their joint creation.
A box set that brings together the Bronte sisters' four greatest novels in beautiful Penguin editions. From the bleak moors of Wuthering Heights to the Belgian capital in Villette, and the mysterious, gloomy country estates of Jane Eyre and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, it features the most famous siblings in literature at the peak of their powers.
The Bronte family was a literary phenomenon unequalled before or since. Both Charlotte's "Jane Eyre" and Emily's "Wuthering Heights" have won lofty places in the pantheon and stirred the romantic sensibilities of generations of readers. This title unites these two favourites.
