Wuthering Heights was first published in 1847 by Emily Brontë, under the pseudonym Ellis Bell. It tells the story of three generations of inhabitants of Wuthering Heights, a wild, haunting manor house set in the Yorkshire Moors. Brontë takes her reader through an emotional storm of love, hate, passion, sorrow, and contempt, through a set of characters described in an early review in the Examiner as ‘savages ruder than those who lived before the days of Homer’.
