About the book

In the late winter months of 1801, a man named Lockwood rents a manor house called Thrushcross Grange in the isolated moor country of England. Here, he meets his dour landlord, Heathcliff, a wealthy man who lives in the ancient manor of Wuthering Heights, four miles away from the Grange. In this wild, stormy countryside, Lockwood asks his housekeeper, Nelly Dean, to tell him the story of Heathcliff and the strange denizens of Wuthering Heights. Nelly consents, and Lockwood writes down his recollections of her tale in his diary.

About the author

emily bronte wuthering heights book reading discussion club madrid

Emily Brontë was an english novelist and poet who is best known for her only novel,Wuthering Heights, now considered a classic of English. Emily was the third eldest of the four survivingBrontë siblings, between the youngestAnneand her brother Branwell. She was born in Thornton, Yorkshire, England, on July 30, 1818, and lived a quiet life in Yorkshire with her clergyman father; brother, Branwell Brontë; and two sisters.

At first, reviewers did not know what to make of Wuthering Heights. It was only after Brontë’s death that the book developed its reputation as a literary masterwork. She died of tuberculosis on December 19, 1848. Interest in Brontë’s work and life remains strong today. The parsonage where Brontë spent much of her life is now a museum. The Brontë Society operates the museum and works to preserve and honor the work of the Brontë sisters.
