Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte

http://bookquickies.files.wordpress.com/2007/10/wh-copy2.gif

There is not much I can say about Emily Bronte's only novel that has not already been said. A very enjoyable read, I would make the same comment that I made about Austen's books: the staying power of these secluded 19th Century female writers is quite remarkable. The book seems as relevant today as when it was written, indeed more so. Heathcliff is by far one of the most memorable and well developed - yet intriguing - character in the history of English literature.

Natalie Portman is set to star in yet another film adaptation (shit, there was just one 15 years ago, can't they find some other dead broad's novel to remake!) For the record, I really enjoyed the book, and would definitely recommend it, even if you are not an undergraduate in Victorian literature!

My old enemies have not beaten me; now would be the precise time to revenge myself on their representatives: I could do it; and none could hinder me. But where is the use? I don't care for striking: I can't take the trouble to raise my hand! That sounds as if I had been labouring the whole time only to exhibit a fine trait of magnanimity. It is far from being the case: I have lost the faculty of enjoying their destruction, and I am too idle to destroy for nothing.

i read wuthering heights in grade 12 english, along with great gatsby, othello and king lear. compared with the rest (all of which i really enjoyed) wuthering heights was a little bit of a letdown for me.
