Over de Auteur

Emily Bronte, the sister of Charlotte, shared the same isolated childhood on the Yorkshire moors. Emily, however, seems to have been much more affected by the eerie desolation of the moors than was Charlotte. Her one novel, Wuthering Heights (1847), draws much of its power from its setting in that toon meer desolate landscape. Emily's work is also marked by a passionate intensity that is sometimes overpowering. According to English poet and critic Matthew Arnold, "for passion, vehemence, and grief she had no equal since Byron." This passion is evident in the poetry she contributed to the collection (Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell) published by the Bronte sisters in 1846 under male pseudonyms in response to the prejudices of the time. Her passion reached far force, however, in her novel, Wuthering Heights. Bronte's novel defies easy classification. It is certainly a story of love, but just as certainly it is not a "love story". It is a psychological novel, but is so filled with hints of the supernatural and mystical that the reader is unsure of how much control the characters have over their own actions. It may seem to be a study of right and wrong, but is actually a study of good and evil. Above all, it is a novel of power and fierce intensity that has gripped readers for more than 100 years.

Korte biografie
Emily Brontë was born in Yorkshire, England, one of the six children of Patrick Brontë, a clergyman, and his wife Maria Branwell. She and her siblings wrote fantastical stories together, creating imaginary worlds filled with romantic and military adventures.

At age 20, Emily worked briefly as a teacher before returning home to the parsonage at Haworth, where she continued to write poetry and fiction as well as doing much of the housework. In 1846, with her sisters Charlotte and Anne, under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell," she jointly published a volume of poems entitled Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. In 1847, she published her only novel, Wuthering Heights. She died the following year at age 30 of tuberculosis, a disease that plagued her family.

Tijdens een stormachtige nacht wordt Lockwood gedwongen onderdak te zoeken in het spookachtige landhuis van zijn verhuurder: Woeste Hoogten. Daar hoort hij het verhaal van de vurige, gedoemde liefde tussen Catherine Earnshaw en de donkere en mysterieuze Heathcliff. Emily Jane Brontë (1818-1848) is dankzij Woeste Hoogten waarschijnlijk de bekendste van de drie Brontë-zussen, hoewel niet degene die het meest publiceerde. Haar enige roman verscheen in 1847, één jaar voor haar dood, en geldt als een van de eerste gothic romans en een van de grootste klassiekers aller tijden.… (meer)

Zeer lang geleden gelezen. De sterren gelden de passie, de compromisloze woestheid in het boek, vooral vertegenwoordigd door hoofdpersoons Heathcliff's passie voor Catherine Earnshaw, dochter van de man die hem als zwervende kleuter mee naar huis heeft genomen en zijn zucht tot destructie van het huis Wuthering Heights, alle andere Earnshaws, het buurhuis Thrushcross Grange. Met Catherine trouwt Heathcliff niet: zij neemt de keurige Linton, maar sterft ongeveer in H's armen aan een crise de nerfs. H. trouwt met Lintons zuster die hij vernedert en kwelt om zich op de familie te wreken, dwingt de dochter van C. en Linton met zijn zoon te trouwen die onmiddellijk sterft. Zelf gaat H. dood, horen we uit de tweede hand, door te smachten naar Catherine. Hoewel de vertelinstanties niet helemaal bevredigend zijn en de gebeurtenissen soms wat overdreven lijken, is dit een prachtige Senecaans/Jacobeaanse tragedie als epos.… (meer)

Krachtig verhaal, 2de helft iets minder
Gedragen door passies: liefde en wraak
Thema’s van de civilisatie versus natuur en instinct, romantiek-elementen (storm, park, moors, spoken en dromen)
Donkere stijl door suggestieve bijvoegelijke naamwoorden; alleen op het einde: zon barst door de wolken.)
