"Wuthering Heights" ( A Classic Ashley Review)

Hello fellow readers!!!!

  I am completing my week of classic's with what I believe is a good end to the classic week. "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte, is a heart warming story of true love that never can be. Like her sister Charlotte, Emily takes strong characters and gives their love story a little spin. Although, the two character's don't stay together in the end their love is so strong that they are reunited in death.

Here is the summary of this fated romance taken from Goodreads......

   "Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature."

I don't want to give anymore of this book away, like I kinda gave away the ending. The summary tells it all, except the twists and turns the lovers take to get where they are in the end. Catherine doesn't wait for Heathcliff to return, because she doesn't believe that he loves her and winds up marrying a man she knows she can never love. It is such a sad and amazing story to read, because these two characters are meant to be together, but because of certain circumstances they can't.

Emily, just as her sister did, takes the reader on a whirl wind romance between two people that will make you want to believe in true love and soul mates. This story will have you on an emotional roller coaster, that will leave you happy or sad in the end. The movie poster that I am going to show is an old one, but to me it is the best movie that brings this amazing work of art to life and gives the reader the message that I believe Emily wanted to reader to see.

Till Next Time,
