Wuthering Heights Emily Brontë

Wuthering Heights

When Mr. Lockwood, the new tenant at Thrushcross Grange, visits his landlord at Wuthering Heights, he is astounded by the unorthodox character of the man and his household. Back at the Grange, he asks his servant, Nelly, about the family. She tells him a strange, multigenerational tale of love, class, jealousy, and revenge.
Thirty years earlier, Mr. Earnshaw, master of Wuthering Heights, returned from a trip to Liverpool with an unkempt orphan in tow, announcing to his wife and children that the child was now a member of the family. While young Catherine Earnshaw became close with this boy, Heathcliff, her older brother Hindley sank into bitter resentment of the urchin who had usurped his father’s and his sister’s affections—a feeling that only deepened when his father sent him away to college. As Catherine and Heathcliff grew into young adults, and their affection blossomed into desire, Hindley’s resentment boiled over into hatred, setting the stage for a tragic and twisted drama whose aftermath would shake the foundations of both Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange.

Quando eu li, tinha lá uns quatorze ou quinze anos, tinha em mãos uma edição “resumida” da série Reencontro da editora Scipione. Estava na praia, o tempo estava ruim então o livro era só o que me restava. Resumo da ópera: achei bem sem graça. Aí re... leia mais
