Contestant 1

"I cannot say why I felt so wildly wretched: it must have been temporary derangement for there is scarcely a cause- but supposing at twelve years old, I had been wrenched from the Heights and every early association, and my all in all, as Heathcliff was at the time... an exile and outcast, thenceforth, from what had been my world“ (115).

Contestant 2

Contestant 4

“"If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger: I should not seem a part of it“ (74).

Where is the one place you would call home?

Contestant 1

"It is not so buried in the trees and it is not quite so large but you can see the country beautifully all round; and the air is healthier for you-fresher and dryer” (188).

Contestant 2

“‘I have undergone sharp discipline, which has taught me wisdom: and then I have read more than you would fancy, Mr. Lockwood. You could not open a book in this library that I have not looked into, and got something out of also: unless it be that range of Greek and Latin, and that of French’” (56).

Contestant 4

“Mr. Linton had put on her pillow, in the morning, a handful of golden crocuses… ‘These are the earliest flowers at the Heights,’ she exclaimed. ‘They remind me of soft thaw winds, and warm sunshine’” (123).

What is One event that has shaped your life?

Contestant 1

"Fortunately, its mother died before the time arrived some thirteen years later after the decease of Catherine when Linton was 12 or a little more“ (168).

Contestant 2

“‘I’m very far from jesting, Miss Catherine,’ I replied. ‘You love Mr. Edgar, because he is handsome, and young, and cheerful, and rich, and loves you. The last, however, goes for nothing: you would love him without that, probably; and with it you wouldn’t unless he possessed the four former attractions’” (71).

Contestant 3

“But the doctor says the missis must go: he says she’s been in a consumption these many months.” (57)

Contestant 4

“I believe here new abode was in the south, near London; there she had a son born, a few months subsequent to her escape. He was christened Linton, and, from the first, she reported him to be an ailing, peevish creature” (167).

The MOOrs

  • The Moors are a type of habitat

  • They are generally known as an uncultivated hill

  • Many in England

  • Different types of moss and grass grow in them

  • Great many different bird andplant species live in te Moorland setting.

  • As landscape painting became more popular, people’s sensitivity and appreciation of nature grew

  • Romantic English writers found the moors to be the ideal location for their stories because it improved the emotional impact of the story, the setting being a heightened and stimulating location

  • * Several works of late Romantic English literature featured Moorlands. For example:

  • -Wuthering Heights—Emily Bronte (Yorkshire) (where the Bronte family is from)

  • -The Secret Garden—Frances Hodgson Burnett (Yorkshire)

  • -The Hound of the Baskervilles—Arthur Conan Doyle (Dartmoor)

  • There are 8 notable areas of upland Moorlands in Britain:

  • The Dark Peako

  • The Forest of Bowlando

  • The Lake Districto

  • The Pennineso

  • Mid Whales

  • The Southern Uplands of Scotlando

  • The Scottish Highlands

  • A few scattered in Herefordshire


Discussion question

Why do you think the characters of Wuthering Heights tend to be very similar to Emily Bronte and her family members? Do you think authors tend to write about what they know, and that's why it is all very similar, or could there be another reason?
