Anglų namų darbas. Wuthering Heights is Emily Brontë's only novel. It was written in 1847, under the pseudonym of Ellis Bell. The plot and characters are wonderfully powerful, as it comes from the pen of a woman writer.
In the late winter months of 1801, a man named Lockwood rents a house called Thrushcross Grange in the isolated moor country of England. Here, he meets his dour landlord, Heathcliff, a wealthy man who lives in Wuthering Heights, four miles away from the Grange. Lockwood asks his housekeeper, Nelly Dean, to tell him the inhabitants of Wuthering Heights. Nelly is happy to recount the dark tale of the Earnshaws, the Lintons, and, mostly, Heathcliff.
She remembers her childhood. As a young girl, she works as a servant at Wuthering Heights for the owner of the manor, Mr. Earnshaw, and his family. Everything is fine until Mr. Earnshaw takes a trip to Liverpool and returns with a swarthy little orphan child named Heathcliff. Soon Earnshaw's daughter Catherine and Heathcliff are inseparable, but the son, Hindley is very jealous of him, so he goes off to college.
When Mr. Earnshaw dies, Hindley returns from college, with his new wife Frances, to claim his place as master of Wuthering Heights. He decides to make life miserable for his adopted brother by treating him like a servant. But Heathcliff and Catherine continue their close relationship as they love each other.
