In this article, the authors compare many aspects of the novel to heaven and hell. It analyzes key
parts of the novel, finds connections to Satan, and the fall from heaven to hell, or vice versa.
Furthermore, it identifies most of her work as deeply religious, and compares her to Blake and
Milton, both visionary writers.

This article if full of complex diction, old fashioned syntax, and insightful critique. This article
contains lengthy words, and can be hard to follow, but its analysis is very clear and intuitive. It
has a strong religious tone, and offers new quirks to the characters portrayals. It connects to the
novels theme of heaven and hell, as well as revenge and betrayal, exploring the dark
characteristics of the human psyche.

More Than One Person Comments. Elite Daily, 9 Apr. 2014. Web. 12 Nov. 2014.

This article defines the meaning of true love, and goes on to explain that it is impossible to truly
love more than one person. It criticizes the belief that one can fall in love quickly, claiming that
isn't true love.

This article is full of opinion, yet it provides a solid argument. The claim that a person is only
capable of loving one other person defies Catherines whole character; she is deeply in love with
two other characters, Heathcliff and Edgar Linton, throughout the entire novel. She cannot bear to
decide between them, and obsesses over both, an action the author claims only works with one
person. Catherines complicated love life disregards all notions of the norms of society, and that is
what makes her story so intriguing.

In this article you will find evidence of life after death. It reveals that studies have been
conducted to confirm that something does happens to us when we die. Additionally, it provides
evidence from cardiac arrest patients, saying that many of them experienced a form of
awareness during the time when their hearts had stopped beating.

This article provides clear evidence that proves our existence does not end after we die. Scientists
conducted an extensive study to determine this. This fascination with life after death that we
humans possess is comparable to Catherine Earnshaws fear of leaving the earth. These patients
accounts of an out-of-body experience mirror Catherines dream of visiting heaven. This article

provides both textual evidence and poses unanswered questions, piquing the readers curiosity
and encouraging an interest in life after death.

to Their Lives and Work, Literary A to Z. New York: Facts On File, Inc., 2003. Bloom's
Literature. Facts On File, Inc. Web. 29 Oct. 2014.

This biography explains what little of Bronts existence is known; much of her life is cloaked in
mystery and conjecture. The article relates to a few anecdotes of her childhood that are claimed to
be true, and it explores her interests in a world after death, much like her characters in Wuthering

The author starts the biography by stating that most of what we know about Emily Bront is
either speculation or purely wrong. It then brushes over a short exposition of her life, and goes on
to analyze the connection between her interests and her work. The author describes Bront as,
unique among her peers and also a true Romantic. This glimpse into the mysterious life of
Emily Bront intrigues the reader, leading them to search for more answers in the text of her
novel and poems.

This article is also a biography of Emily Bronts life and work. Although similar to the previous
biography, this one provides opposing viewpoints about her personal life. For example, where the
previous article stated that Emily Bront always kept her work to herself, this one claims that she

started to submit work for publication, after the urging of her brother. This further proves that
little of her existence was actually recorded and factual.

This article portrays Emily Bront as a scholarly, innovative writer who changed gothic literature.
The narrative is short and to the point, with flowing transitions that make it enjoyable to read. The
author highly praises Bronts work as well, with many enriched descriptions. This precise
account of Bronts life and her work help the reader to understand her novel better, lending
awareness to the purpose of the novel.

In this article, Marianne Thormhlen attacks Emily Bronts development of character, and
questions the credibility of the plot. Thormhlen doubts much of the characters actions, and
backs up her claims with quotes from other critics. She paints the characters personas entirely
different from that of the author.

analyzes the relationship between Heathcliff and Catherine, therefore giving the reader insight on
the complexity of romance in the novel. This critique might attack some aspects of the novel, but
it also adds understanding of the intricate personas of the characters.
