Wuthering Heights was my top #1 favorite book in school. What was yours? Below doesn’t show my usual book review, but rather a list of discussion questions for a book club.
Title- Wuthering Heights
Author- Emily Bronte
Heathcliff, an orphan, is raised by Mr Earnshaw as one of his own children. Hindley despises him but wild Cathy becomes his constant companion, and he falls deeply in love with her. But when she will not marry him, Heathcliff’s terrible vengeance ruins them all. Yet still his and Cathy’s love will not die.
“He’s more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”
“My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary.”
“Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! . . . It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!”
