Wuthering Heights (eBook)
de Emily Brontë
Sobre o livro
‘May you not rest, as long as I am living. You said I killed you—haunt me, then’
Heathcliff, a ‘dark-skinned’ orphan, and Catherine Earnshaw, the cruel daughter of his wealthy benefactor, were inseparable: twinned spirits running wild on the Yorkshire moors. But when Catherine’s father dies, those around the lovers conspire to tame Catherine so she will take her place in society, and to humiliate proud Heathcliff, raised to believe he was equal to the Earnshaws and their neighbours, the Lintons, but now forced to labour as a servant.
After a final betrayal by Catherine herself, Heathcliff flees Wuthering Heights, only to reappear years later, hardened and vengeful, with a fortune and a fiendish plot to forever erase the ancient names of Earnshaw and Linton from the Yorkshire countryside… and to reunite with Catherine—long after her death.
This Gladstone Press edition of Wuthering Heights has been carefully matched to the original 1847 first edition text, with only minor spelling and punctuation corrections, and is beautifully redesigned and typeset for a modern audience.
