Al centro di Cime tempestose è la passione dell'orgoglioso e ribelle Heathcliff per Catherine, unita inestricabilmente a lui, da cui pure la dividono censo e cultura, da un sentimento che non le dà pace, neppure dopo il suo matrimonio con sir Edgar Linton: un amore impossibile che porta a trasgredire ogni legge e ordine; una passione fatale e tremenda che impone ai due amanti un vincolo di reciproco, esclusivo possesso, fino all'autodistruzione. Nel capolavoro di Emily Brontë l'aspro realismo della vita quotidiana nella solitaria brughiera dello Yorkshire si fonde con spunti di eccezionale intensità emotiva e con suggestioni simboliche inquietanti in cui l'autrice fa rivivere temi e atmosfere del romanzo «gotico» e soprannaturale.

This is my favourite book. I do not say that lightly - I've read quite a lot from all different genres - but this is my favourite book . Of all time. Ever. The ladies over at The Readventurer kindly allowed me to get my feelings of utter adoration for Wuthering Heights off my chest in their "Year of Leggi tutto
I understand why many people hate this book. Catherine and Heathcliff are monstrous. Monstrous. You won't like them because they are unlikable. They are irrational, self-absorbed, malicious and pretty much any negative quality you can think a person is capable of possessing without imploding. They s Leggi tutto
I've tried it three times. I know people are obsessed with it. I hate everyone in the book - and I just can't care about a book where I actually hate the characters. And, sure, I get the interpretation that as terrible as Heathcliff and Cathy are, it's their love that redeems them, and isn't that rom Leggi tutto
I never expected this book to be as flagrantly, unforgivably bad as it was. To start, Bronte's technical choice of narrating the story of the primary characters by having the housekeeper explain everything to a tenant 20 years after it happened completely kills suspense and intimacy. The most I can s Leggi tutto
Certain novels come to you with pre-packaged expectations. They just seem to be part of literature's collective unconscious, even if they are completely outside of your own cultural referents. I, for instance, who have no particular knowledge of--or great love for--romantic, Anglo-Gothic fiction, ca Leggi tutto
"all i care about in this goddamn life are me, my drums, and you"... if you don't know that quote, you're probably too young to be reading this and isn't it past your bedtime or shouldn't you be in school or something? but that quote, hyper-earnest cheese - that is romance. wuthering heights is someth Leggi tutto
''O God! It is a long fight, I wish it were over!” How can I find and put together the suitable words and write a review about one of the most iconic creations in World Literature? One of those books that provoke such intense feelings that either you worship them or you utterly hate them. There i
Ah the classics. Everybody can read their own agenda in them. So, first a short plot guide for dinner conversations when one needs to fake acculturation, and then on to the critics’ view. A woman [1:] is in love with her non-blood brother [2:] but marries her neighbor [3:] whose sister [4:] marries Leggi tutto
This is a review I never imagined I’d write. This is a book I was convinced I’d love. I just have to face the facts, Emily is no Charlotte. I’m going to start with the positives. The characterisation of Heathcliff is incredibly strong. He is a man who is utterly tormented by the world. As a gypsy boy Leggi tutto
If you think that spitefulness is romantic, and that people destroying their lives is dramatic, go ahead and read this book. But don't say I didn't warn you.
