Wuthering Heights By William Shakespeare

- According to Steven Vine, the title of the novel Wuthering Heights was much more than a title, but was actually the basis for which the entire novel was written. The complex term “wuther” from the title has many definitions that are shown throughout the novel. The main definitions of wuther that appear through the novel are “An attack, onset; a smart blow, or stroke” and “to tremble, shake, or quiver.” Vine argues from these definitions that Wuthering Heights’s wuthering occurs as a quivering from inside and outside attacks, which can be seen through the interactions between the characters within Wuthering Heights....   [tags: Wuthering Heights, Heathcliff, Catherine Earnshaw]

In Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, the majority of the characters are even divided into two distinct groups: the natural, passionate, and almost savage side; and the reformed, established, civilized side. The group to which they are assigned therefore characterizes their own thoughts and behavior, resulting in many character foils and conflicts between those on different sides....   [tags: Wuthering Heights, Catherine Earnshaw]
