Product Description

Details

Emily Brontë's novel Wuthering Heights tells the story of the ill-fated love of Catherine Earnshaw for the dark and brooding Heathcliff. This book is considered by many to be the most passionate and original novel in English literature. Set on the bleak Yorkshire moors in the north of England, the story tells of Heathcliff's revenge against Catherine's husband, and his sister, but ends with the hope of redemption through the next generation.


The story overall is one of dark, brooding menace. Heathcliff and Catherine are obsessed with each other, and test the strict Victorian values that surround them. When the novel was published, the reviews were contentious, as Wuthering Heights broke the rules of Victorian morality, the social class structure, and challenged the role of women and their position in society.


Today the novel is a classic. The abridged and retold novel retains the storyline of the original, and the essence of Brontë's style so it is suitable for ELT students and those wishing to read and understand the novel quickly. The book contains an introduction, notes on the characters, a simple glossary and comes with a CD so you can listen to it as you read.


The CD is read by an actor in a slow, clear voice to aid listening and comprehension.
