This is a concise but comprehensive student guide to studying Emily Bronte's classic novel "Wuthering Heights". After its relatively modest reception in 1847, Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" has become one of the most widely-read novels of the nineteenth century. Seen as one of those rare works that has transcended its literary origin to become part of the lexicon of popular culture, its uncompromising awareness of the powers of both love and selfishness, landscape and revenge has made it a popular choice of text for students. This concise but comprehensive guide to the text introduces its contexts, language, reception and adaptation from its first publication to the present. It includes points for discussion, suggestions for further study and an annotated guide to relevant reading. "Continuum Reader's Guides" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to key texts in literature and philosophy. Each book explores the themes, context, criticism and influence of key works, providing a practical introduction to close reading, guiding students towards a thorough understanding of the text. They provide an essential, up-to-date resource, ideal for undergraduate students.
