In Wuthering Heights this parallel is shown through Heathcliff, who is vulnerable after falling head over heel for Catherine....   [tags: miscellaneous] 1038 words

Structure and Narrative Technique in "Wurthering Heights" and "Return of the Native" - Thomas Hardy employs an `omniscient' narrator in his rural novel `Return of the Native', as he attempts to mimic classical tragedy by uniting the essential elements of time, place and action. The fact that the novel was originally intended to be of a five book structure, with monthly instalments, ending with a final, devastating climax, coupled with the numerous classical references to "Hades." "Hercules" and "Prometheus", shows even further Hardy's desire to create an immensely tragic novel, void of a desire to please societies middle-class novel reading public....   [tags: European Literature] 1153 words

Before she wrote Wuthering Heights in 1847, Emily Brontë came from a very creative household as both of her sisters, Charlotte and Anne Brontë, were also writers with whom Emily would enjoy spending time with writing prose and poetry.
