I think the environment that Emily Bronte lived in influences the reason why she arranged “death and illness” appearing constantly. At the time she lived, there was a kind of epidemic-scarlet fever spreading widely in which they lived. Consequently, as a result of being this surrounding, she wrote Wuthering Heights with a series of death and illness.
