Bronte: Wuthering Heights

In this course we look at several aspects of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights. In the first six sections, we focus on Romanticism and what it means to call Heathcliff a Romantic hero. In second six sections, we focus on individual themes in the novel, including the concepts of alienation, madness and hysteria, town and country, nostalgia, and the Gothic.

Emily Bronte

This first module looks in more detail at the author of Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte (1818 – 1848). In particular, we think about the influence of Romanticism in her writing.
