Wuthering Heights is a novel by Emily Bronte, published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell.
Wuthering Heights is the eponysmous farmhouse on the Yorkshire moors where the story unfolds. The book’s core theme is the destructive effect that jealousy and vengefullness have, both on the jealous or vengeful individuals and on their communities.
Although Wuthering Heights is now widely regarded as a classic of English literature, it received mixed reviews when first published, and was considered controversial because its depiction of mental and physical cruelty was so unusually stark. Wuthering Heights has inspired adaptions, including film, radio and television dramatisations.
