Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte

**We will be meeting to discuss this book at The Bottle Bank, Holmes Chapel on Wednesday 22nd November.**

The passionate and tragic story of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff is one of the high points of 19th-century Romantic literature. In the relationship of Cathy and Heathcliff, and in the wild, bleak Yorkshire Moors of its setting, Wuthering Heights creates a world of its own, conceived with a disregard for convention and an instinct for poetry and the darkest depths of the human soul in torment.

If there was ever a book to stimulate passionate and opposing love/hate opinions, it has to be Wuthering Heights. We met to review this classic story at The Bottle Bank, Holmes Chapel tonight.
Many members began this book expecting a love story, and we agreed that love is a theme of the book. But it is also a story of unforgiveness and revenge, revealing some of the worst of human nature.
We agreed that most of the characters were weak, wicked and selfish and pondered on Emily Bronte’s lived experiences to construct these individuals. We could see that their insular existence and remoteness explains some of the behaviours.
Members felt a sense of achievement on reading a somewhat challenging classic novel.
Marks out of 5 ranged from 2 to 5 with an average of 4. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
