Résumé de l'éditeur

When Mr. Earnshaw brings a black-haired foundling child into his home on the Yorkshire moors, he little imagines the dramatic events which will follow. The passionate relationship between Cathy Earnshaw and the foundling, Heathcliff, is a story of love, hate, pity, and retribution, the effects of which reverberate throughout the succeeding generations.

Surprising!

Though published in the 1840’s, this very famous novel is in many respects more Gothic than Victorian, notably through its setting by the English moors and its significant references to ghosts.

Its striking feature is the complexity of narrators, a travelling gentleman purporting to recount the story, in large part by quoting Nelly, a maidservant who has personally witnessed the events. Neither may be assumed to be perfectly objective, and Nelly’s actions or lack thereof certainly have an impact on what happens.

Though the characters are somewhat one-dimensional and some elements of the plot remain unresolved, for instance how Heathcliff became very wealthy over a period of three years away from home, this work is certainly worthwhile and enjoyable.
