The archetypal gothic novel with a new foreword by the author of a seminal Brontë study Emily Brontë's only novel is one of the most treasured classics of 19th-century fiction. Intensely passionate and sharply original, it tells the story of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff's doomed love and its disastrous consequences. Emily's profound love of her native Yorkshire is displayed in the novel's evocative depiction of the moors. This is a work full of iconic images and of unfailingly compelling narrative.
Emily Brontë (18181848) and her sisters Anne and Charlotte are acclaimed English novelists and poets. Lucasta Miller is the author of The Brontë Myth.
