Wuthering Heights Notes
Emily Bronte
  • Emily Bronte was born July 30, 1818
  • Yorkshire, England
  • Her father, Patrick Bronte
  • had been educated at Cambridge
  • rector of a church in the small town of Haworth
  • married Maria Branwell,
  • six children Maria, Elizabeth, Charlotte,
    Branwell, Emily, and Anne.
  • In 1821 Maria Bronte died
  • children were left much to themselves, spending
    much time reading and writing.

  • The children were educated at home most of the
  • Emily (and some of the other girls) did spend
    some time at a girls school.
  • Emily Bronte took a teaching position for a short
  • She became homesick and returned home.
  • Emily and Charlotte also entertained plans to
    start a school
  • In 1845 Charlotte found poems written by Emily
    and discovered, in fact, that she, Emily, and
    Anne all wrote poetry.
  • In 1846 they published a volume of their poetry,
    but only two copies of the book were sold.
  • The girls wrote under pseudonyms Charlotte as
    Currer Bell, Emily as Ellis Bell, and Anne as
    Acton Bell.

  • In 1847 Charlotte Brontes novel Jane Eyre was
    published and was extremely successful.
  • Wuthering Heights was published in December,
    1847, but was not well received at that time
  • it was considered too savage and animal-like.
  • Laterit was recognized as one of the finest
    novels in the English language.
  • Soon after the publication of her only novel,
    Emilys health failed she died of tuberculosis
    in 1848.

Characteristics of Romanticism
  • Emphasis on emotion (a reaction to the emphasis
    on reason of the preceding period).

  • Glorification of the imagination This group
    rejected the previous
  • periods treatment of man as a limited being
    restricted by reason,
  • and therefore, bound by tradition. The
    imagination became equated
  • with creativity as contrasted to the imitative
    process followed by
  • the previous neoclassicists.

  • Emphasis on subjectivity and individuality
    Romanticists believed
  • that everyone was unique and different. This
    eventually led to an
  • appreciation for introspection, reverie, and
    melancholy. The
  • brooding, solitary dreamer became a popular
    literary figure.

  • Love, a preeminent theme Romantic writers often
    wrote about
  • love, but their vision of love was usually
    spiritual in nature.
  • They believed that for every person, there was a
    perfect soulmate
  • the person in the world who provided his other
    half and made him a more complete person.
    Love, in other words, was a spiritual communion.

  • Worship of nature Romanticists often set their
    poems or stories
  • in the countryside and appreciated the rustic
    person who was close
  • to nature and unspoiled by civilization. This
    cult of nature
  • eventually led to the development of the
    theory of Pantheism, a
  • theological belief that equates God with

  • Idealism This group believed that life could be
    made better and
  • were often politically active in trying to
    bring about change, and
  • many also believed that heaven could be found
    on earthor nowhere.
