Wuthering Heights remains one of the most powerful novels ever written. It is a classic tale of love, jealousy and pain that defies social boundaries and challenges death itself. Inseparable as children, Cathy and Heathcliff's devotion to each other grows into profound and dangerous passion as they become adults. Fate seems to conspire to force them apart, but nothing can break the bond between them, a bond that reaches beyond accepted human behaviour. When Cathy dies during childbirth, Heathcliff's unfathomable heartbreak is released in monumental, vengeful anger. But vengeance brings him little satisfaction and it is only when Cathy's ghost appears to him that he begins to sense the resolution that he craves.
