Emily Bronte

This story takes place in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The story is set in the north of England a long way from any big cities or towns. People travel on horses or they walk long distances between houses and villages. There are no telephones and there is no electricity.

Wuthering Heights is about two families - the Lintons and the Earnshaws. The Lintons are very rich and own a big house and lots of land and farms. They have many servants and farmworkers and they are very important people. The Earnshaws are not as rich as the Lintons. But they are not poor - they own a farm and they have some servants and farmworkers. This story about dramatic lives of the family’s peoples.

Although Wuthering Heights is now a classic of English literature, contemporaneous reviews were deeply polarised; it was controversial because of its unusually stark depiction of mental and physical cruelty, and it challenged Victorian ideas about religion, morality, class and a woman's place in society.
