Emily Brontë’s work on Wuthering Heights cannot be dated, and she may well have spent a long time on this intense, solidly imagined novel. It is distinguished from other novels of the period by its dramatic and poetic presentation, its abstention from all comment by the author, and its unusual structure. It recounts in the retrospective narrative of an onlooker, which in turn includes shorter narratives.
Emily Bronte, author of “Wuthering Heights” was born in 1818. When I first read her work, I was moved; when I re-read her work, I was inspired. Today, I continue to admire in awe.
