    Wuthering Nights
    An Erotic Retelling of Wuthering Heights
    WUTHERING NIGHTSRomantics everywhere have been enthralled by Emily Bronte's classic novel of the tragic love between beautiful, spirited Catherine Earnshaw and dark, brooding Heathcliff. The restrained desire between these two star-crossed lovers has always smoldered on the page. And now it ignites into an uncontrollable blaze. In WUTHERING NIGHTS, writer I.J. Miller reimagines this timeless story to reveal the passion between Catherine and Heathcliff--in all its forbidden glory.Set against the stark, raw beauty of the English moors, Heathcliff, an abandoned orphan, recognizes his soulmate in wild, impulsive Catherine, the only woman who can tame his self-destructive nature. And Catherine cannot deny the all-consuming desire she feels for him, despite his low birth. Together they engage in a fiery affair--one that will possess them, enslave them, and change their destinies forever...

    The Bronte Sisters

    The Bronte Sisters
    Three Novels: Jane Eyre; Wuthering Heights; and...
      The most cherished novel from each of England's talented sisters, in one gorgeously packaged volume The Brontë family was a literary phenomenon unequalled before or since. Both Charlotte's Jane Eyre and Emily's Wuthering Heights have won lofty places in the pantheon and stirred the romantic sensibilities of generations of readers. For the first time ever, Penguin Classics unites these two enduring favorites with the lesser known but no less powerful work by their youngest sister, Anne. Drawn from Anne's own experiences as a governess, Agnes Grey offers a compelling view of Victorian chauvinism and materialism. Its inclusion makes The Brontë Sisters a must-have volume for anyone fascinated by this singularly talented family.  

    The Bronte Collection

    The Bronte Collection
    The works of the Brontë sisters—Charlotte, Emily, and Anne—caused an uproar during their day, and continue to captivate modern readers with their vivid characters, passionate romanticism, sinister atmosphere, and feminist strains. This audiobook collects four examples of the sisters at the height of their powers. Charlotte is represented with Villette, a penetrating psychological study of a young woman teaching at an all-girls school; and the immortal Jane Eyre, acclaimed for its blend of social critique and Gothicism. Emily's equally classic Wuthering Heights unforgettably recounts the all-encompassing, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine. Finally, younger sister Anne offers a prescient tale of an idealistic young woman trying to save her brutish husband from himself in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Readers Hannah Gordon, Carole Boyd, and David Rintoul dramatize these masterpieces in high British style.

    Wuthering Heights - Literary Touchstone Edition

    Wuthering Heights - Literary Touchstone Edition
    This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition? includes a glossary and reader?s notes to help the modern reader contend with Bronte?s complex characters and vocabulary. We hope that Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Editions? will make your reading more enjoyable and perhaps more meaningful. A midnight storm rages around lonely Wuthering Heights, and a miserable ghost claws at the window. We are taken backwards in time, to the beginning of the story of the Earnshaws and Lintons: the separation of spiritual twins, the bitter, repeated clashes, and the doom that seems inescapable for these two families. The tale unravels in a bleak environment that seems hostile to human life and love. But the savagery at work outside is nothing compared to the cruelty the characters inflict upon one another. Wuthering Heights illustrates the violent ruin of passionate natures as few other novels have.Solitude, pain, and loss were all part of Emily Bronte?s own life. In creating her 1847 masterpiece, she drew upon her childhood experiences in an isolated English home much like Wuthering Heights. But she also relied upon her brilliant imagination and a superb talent for detail to depict the finest nuances of her characters? language, gestures, and dress.
