'My greatest thought in living is Heathcliff. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be...Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure...but as my own being.' Wuthering Heights is the only novel of Emily Bronte, who died a year after its publication, at the age of thirty. A brooding Yorkshire tale of a love that is stronger than death, it is also a fierce vision of metaphysical passion, in which heaven and hell, nature and has become a classic of English literature.
