Emily Bronté's only novel is set firmly in the high moors above Haworth where she watched 'the moths fluttering among the heath and harebells, listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass, and wondered how anyone could imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth'.

Wuthering Heights is a powerful, sombre and imaginative masterpiece—perhaps the masterpiece of all the Bronté canon. Its theme of doomed passion between Cathy Earnshaw and the foundling Heathcliff reflects its author's own bleak upbringing as clearly as its setting evokes the dark and ominous beauty of the moorland country where she lived out the years of her short life.

As a novel of the darkest human passions, of love and sexual obsession, of despair and destruction, its power is matched rarely and then only by the finest of English prose and poetry.

This edition contains a selection of Emily Bronté's poems. Introduction by Elizabeth Jennings.

Notes by Phyllis Bentley.
