''Wuthering Heights'' (1847) was the only novel written by Creator/EmilyBronte (of 'the Brontë sisters'), and an archetypal example of a Gothic Romance. Has been filmed several times, most notably the 1939 version starring LaurenceOlivier as Heathcliff, while a younger, pre-''Film/JamesBond'' Creator/TimothyDalton played Heathcliff in the 1970 film version. Also inspired the 1979 Music/KateBush song of the same name ("Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home...") as well as an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqiUGjghlzU adaptation]] in ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'', Music/{{Genesis}}' album ''Wind and Wuthering'', which used a quotation from the book's ending for two of its song titles, Creator/{{MTV}}'s adaptation of their own with Heathcliff as a guitar-strumming song-writer pitted against classic cello-playing Edgar. And finally, let's not forget Music/DeathCabForCutie's "Cath...", which is fairly transparently based on ''Wuthering Heights'', but in their own style.

It is 1801. The foppish gentleman Mr. Lockwood has moved to Thrushcross Grange, a manor house in the windswept and desolate Yorkshire Moors, where he introduces himself to Heathcliff, his surly, ill-mannered and unwelcoming landlord and master of the nearby Wuthering Heights. Forced to stay at Wuthering Heights overnight, Lockwood suffers a nightmare about the ghost of a young woman desperately pleading to be let back into the house; intrigued, Lockwood asks his housekeeper Nelly Dean to [[FramingDevice tell him the story of Heathcliff and Wuthering Heights]].

Dean's story is one of a terrible, unchecked, all-consuming passion -- that between Heathcliff, an orphaned foundling brought to Wuthering Heights as a child by the then-owner, and Catherine Earnshaw, his spoilt, flighty and wild foster sister, who became inseparable friends as children and later fell in love. Their love, though passionate, was cruelly thwarted, however, both by Hindley, Catherine's brother and Heathcliff's sworn enemy, who resented Heathcliff as an interloper in his father's affections and, upon inheriting the estate, spitefully turned Heathcliff into a downtrodden slave, and by Catherine's own desires for social mobility and class, which saw her marry the decent but seemingly weak Edgar Linton even as she insists that her one true love is and always will be Heathcliff.

Missing Catherine's declaration of eternal love, however, Heathcliff leaves Wuthering Heights in bitterness, only to return several years later having made his fortune elsewhere and determined to crush entirely those who thwarted his one chance at happiness. This includes swindling control of Wuthering Heights away from the now-drunken and embittered Hindley, seducing Edgar's sister Isabella and then treating her in a cruel, abusive fashion once married, and generally scheming to take control of everything that belongs to Edgar and Hindley. Unfortunately, a tragedy occurs not long after that only spurs Heathcliff on to further depths of bitterness, as he determines to extend his vendetta and not only destroy his rivals, but their children...

''Wuthering Heights'' (1847) was the only novel written by Creator/EmilyBronte (of 'the Brontë sisters'), and an archetypal example of a Gothic Romance. Romance, and deals primarily with the cycle of abuse across generations.

It is 1801. The foppish gentleman Mr. Lockwood has moved to Thrushcross Grange, a manor house in the windswept and desolate Yorkshire Moors. He introduces himself to Heathcliff, his surly, ill-mannered and unwelcoming landlord and master of the nearby Wuthering Heights. Forced to stay at Wuthering Heights overnight, Lockwood suffers a nightmare about the ghost of a young woman named Cathy desperately pleading to be let back into the house; intrigued, Lockwood asks his housekeeper Nelly Dean to [[FramingDevice tell him the story of Heathcliff and Wuthering Heights]].

Dean's story is one of a terrible, unchecked, all-consuming passion -- that between Heathcliff, an orphaned foundling brought to Wuthering Heights as a child by the then-owner, and Catherine Earnshaw, his spoilt, flighty and wild foster sister. The two became inseparable friends as children and later fell in love. Their love, though passionate, was cruelly thwarted by Hindley, Catherine's brother and Heathcliff's sworn enemy, who resented Heathcliff as an interloper in his father's affections and, upon inheriting the estate, spitefully turned Heathcliff into a downtrodden slave. Catherine's own desires for social mobility and class see her marry the decent but seemingly weak neighbour Edgar Linton even as she insists that her one true love is and always will be Heathcliff. Heathcliff leaves Wuthering Heights in bitterness, only to return several years later, having made his fortune elsewhere and determined to crush entirely those who thwarted his one chance at happiness -- as well as all their relations.

* MosesInTheBullrushes: Heathcliff is discovered by the Earnshaws as a homeless youth and comforted as a child by Nelly telling him he is a lost prince. In hindsight, this might not have been such a good idea.

** From the 2009 version:
-->'''Heathcliff''': What are you two doing in here?!
-->'''Catherine(II)''': I wanted to feel close to what is left of my family. I'm the only person to blame, Hareton stayed with me at my insistence.
-->'''Heathcliff'''(speaking to Hareton): And who the ''devil'' gave you the leave to set one foot in HERE?! And WHO ordered you to obey her?
-->'''Catherine (II)''': You shouldn't grudge me one room when you have taken everything from me!
-->'''Heathcliff'''(practically hissing): You insolent slut! You never had anything.
-->'''Catherine (II)'''(glaring up at Heathcliff): If you strike me, Hareton will strike you!
-->'''Heathcliff''': And if Hareton doesn't turn you out of this room, I will strike him back to Hell!
-->(at this point, Hareton puts himself between Catherine (II) and Heathcliff)
-->'''Heathcliff'''(after glancing at Catherine's portrait): Take her, Hareton. Take her and leave me. All of you leave me now.
