Here a tragic love story unfolds as Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliffe fall in love, but Cathy marries another man, Edgar Linton, and breaks Heathcliffe's heart. Returning years later, he takes his revenge on the Linton family. "Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.Hide synopsis

Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange, situated on the bleak Yorkshire moors, is forced to seek shelter one night at Wuthering Heights, the home of his landlord. There he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before; of the intense relationship between the gypsy foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw; and how Catherine, forced to choose between passionate, tortured Heathcliff and gentle, well-bred Edgar Linton, surrendered to the expectations of her class. As Heathcliff's bitterness and vengeance at his betrayal is visited upon the next generation, their innocent heirs must struggle to escape the legacy of the past. In this edition, a new preface by Lucasta Miller, author of "The Bronte Myth", looks at the ways in which the novel has been interpreted, from Charlotte Bronte onwards. This complements Pauline Nestor's introduction, which discusses changing critical receptions of the novel, as well as Emily Bronte's influences and background. Emily Bronte (1818-48), along with her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, was one of the most significant literary figures of the 19th century. She wrote just one strikingly innovative novel, "Wuthering Heights", but was also a gifted and intense poet. If you enjoyed "Wuthering Heights", you may like Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, also available in "Penguin Classics". "'Wuthering Heights" is commonly thought of as "romantic", but try rereading it without being astonished by the comfortableness with which Bronte's characters subject one another to extremes of physical and psychological violence." (Jeanette Winterson). "As a first novel, there is very little that can compare to it. Even Shakespeare took over a decade to reach the clifftop extremities of King Lear" (Sarah Waters).Hide

I was really hesitant to read this book because I read Jane Eyre in sophomore year and hated it, and I expected this to be very similar.
BUT IT'S NOT.
Emily's writing style included a lot less superfluous details than Charlotte's did, and the gothic elements actually did frighten me. The language ...
I'll admit that I almost missed out on discovering what a great book this was when it was assigned for an English class, because I couldn't get in to the story. However, as my teacher went over what had happened in the chapters I was supposed to have read, curiosity took hold of me and I began to read ...
absolute tragic tale of two star crossed loversI have read this book countless times and I never tire of this story. what I find amazing is that the author emily bronte, wuthering heights was her only novel that she wrote .
I cannot believe the hype that goes along with this so-called "classic" and one on so many must-read lists. Cruel, depressing story about anything but real love. Obsession at it's worst. They don't just write drivel now, this book is proof that started long ago.
We had to read this book in 12th Grade. When I began reading it I thought that it was diffcult to understand, but my English teacher insisted that we read it. So I forced myself to read it and all I can say is, when I reached the end of the book I was so sad that the story had ended. This book turned ...
