ebook ë Wuthering Heights æ Emily Brontë

You can find the redesigned cover of this edition HEREThis best selling Norton Critical Edition is based on the 1847 first edition of the novel For the Fourth Edition the editor has collated the 1847 text with several modern editions and has corrected a number of variants including accidentals The text is accompanied by entirely new explanatory annotationsNew to the fourth Edition are twelve of Emily Bronte's letters regarding the publicati I never expected this book to be as flagrantly unforgivably bad as it wasTo start Bronte's technical choice of narrating the story of the primary characters by having the housekeeper explain everything to a tenant 20 years after it happened completely kills suspense and intimacy The most I can say is that to some extent this functions as a device to help shroud the story and motives from the reader But really at the time literary techniue hadn't uite always gotten around to accepting that omnipotent 3rd person narrators are allowed so you'd have to have a multiperspective story told by an omnipotent 3rd person narrator who was actually a character in the story eg the housekeeper Ellen The layers of perspective make it annoying and sometimes impossible to figure out who is telling what bit of story; and over because so much is related as two characters explaining things between themselves the result is that we rarely see any action and instead have the entire book explained in socratic pedantic expositionThe sense of place is poorly rendered and almost entirely missing Great the moor is grayBut ultimately the most damning thing is that the characters are a bunch of immature insuffrable narcissistic assholes with very little self respect This isn't a story of great love and passion It's the story of how child abuse perpetuates itself through the generations The characters are either emotionally abused as children or as in the case of Cathy I they're spoiled and overindulged with no discipline and can't muster the restraint and self respect to ditch abusive relationships I kept waiting for any of the characters to be remotely worth my time but I found no respite from the brutish abuse of the horribly twisted Heathcliff or from the simpering idiocy of Cathy I and II Ugh Not only are there no transformations or growth but the characters aren't even that likable to begin with How this book got to be a classic is beyond me
