Wuthering Heights of Emily Brontë The narrative is not linear, it involves several flashbacks and two main narrators: Mr. Lockwood and Ellen "Nelly" Dean. The novel opens in 1801, with Mr. Lockwood arriving at Thrushcross Grange, a large house in the Yorkshire moors that he is renting from the surly Heathcliff, who lives in the nearby Wuthering Heights. Lockwood is treated rudely and coldly by the temperamental Heathcliff and is forced to stay in Wuthering Heights for one night because one of the wild dogs in the Heights attacks him, and the weather turns against him. The housekeeper takes him cautiously to a room to sleep all night and warns him not to talk to Heathcliff about where he is sleeping since he would get into a deep problem.
Wuthering Heights is the only novel by Emily Brontë. Written between October 1845 and June 1846, Wuthering Heights was published in 1847 under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell"; Brontë died the following year, aged 30. Wuthering Heights and Agnes Gray, by Anne Brontë, were accepted by the publisher Thomas Newby before the success of the novel by his sister Charlotte, Jane Eyre. After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the Wuthering Heights manuscript and arranged for the edited version to be published as a second posthumous edition in 1850.
Although Wuthering Heights is now widely regarded as a classic of English literature, contemporary reviews for the novel were deeply polarized; he was considered controversial because his description of mental and physical cruelty was unusually harsh, and he challenged the strict Victorian ideals of the time with respect to religious hypocrisy, morality, social classes and gender inequality. The English poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti, although an admirer of the book, referred to as "A friend of a book, an incredible monster The action is in hell", it just seems that the places and the people have names in English there ".
The novel has inspired adaptations, including dramatizations of cinema, radio and television, a musical by Bernard J. Taylor, a ballet, operas (by Bernard Herrmann, Carlisle Floyd, and Frédéric Chaslin), part of the album "Wind and Wuthering" 1976 by Genesis, and a 1978 song by Kate Bush.
