Wuthering Heights

My generation has grown up with  Wuthering Heights, a timeless story of love, passion and revenge. I have been watching most of the movies inspired by it as well as listening to songs and operas.  Heathcliff's character has always been a favorite subject for Marxist and Feminist criticism. He is a  mystery to the readers and centered with analytical approach to race, class, prejudice, power games and personal complications.  Last night I watched another adaptation of this book starring  Juliette Binoche and Ralph Fiennes.

"Wuthering Heights is a novel by Emily Brontë, written between October 1845 and June 1846, and published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell. It was her first and only published novel: she died aged 30 the following year. The decision to publish came after the success of her sister Charlotte's novel, Jane Eyre. After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights, and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in 1850."
