(July 30, 1818 - December 19, 1848)
- "an English novelist and poet, now best remembered for her only novel, Wuthering Heights, a classic of English literature.
Emily was the second eldest of the three surviving Brontë sisters, between Charlotte and Anne.
She published under the androgynous pen name Ellis Bell."
'Wuthering Heights' :
'Wuthering Heights' is the only novel by Emily Brontë.
It was first published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, and a posthumous second edition was edited by her sister Charlotte.
The name of the novel comes from the Yorkshire manor on the moors on which the story centres (as an adjective; wuthering is a Yorkshire word referring to turbulent weather). The narrative tells the tale of the all-encompassing and passionate, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw, and how this unresolved passion eventually destroys them and many around them."
"Wuthering Heights" "is a song by Kate Bush...
the song is based on the novel of the same name (by Emily Brontë)...
Lyrically, "Wuthering Heights" uses several quotations from Catherine Earnshaw, most notably in the chorus - "Let me in! I'm so cold!"
- as well as in the verses, with Catherine's confession to her servant of "bad dreams in the night." It is sung from Catherine's point of view, as she pleads at Heathcliff's window to be allowed in. This romantic scene takes a sinister turn if one considers the events of the book, as Catherine may well be a ghost, calling Heathcliff to join her in death."
