Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë (PDF) Free Download
Wuthering Heights PDF Free Download: Emily Bronte wrote Wuthering Heights in 1847, and it was first published under the pseudonym Ellis Bell.
It is about Heathcliff, the foster son of Earnshaw, and two landed gentry families, the Earnshaws and the Lintons,
who reside on the West Yorkshire moors. The novel was influenced by Gothic and Romantic literature.
Although early reviews of Wuthering Heights were divided, it is today universally regarded as one of the best books ever written in English.
It caused controversy because it questioned Victorian morality as well as religious and society ideals and showed instances of mental and physical violence, including domestic abuse.
Before the success of their sister Charlotte’s book Jane Eyre, publisher Thomas Newby accepted Wuthering Heights and Anne Bronte’s Agnes Grey,
but they weren’t published until much later. Charlotte revised a second printing of Wuthering Heights following Emily’s demise, and it was released in 1850.
Several media have adapted it, notably the song of the same name by English singer-songwriter Kate Bush.

Wuthering Heights PDF Summary
In 1801, Heathcliff’s remote moorland farmhouse, Wuthering Heights, receives a visit from Mr. Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange in Yorkshire.
There he encounters a quiet young lady (later identified as Cathy Linton), Joseph, a cranky servant, and Hareton, a guy who claims to be ignorant.
Everyone is gloomy and unwelcoming. Snowed in for the night, Lockwood reads Catherine Earnshaw’s diary and has a nightmare in which a ghostly Catherine begs to come through the window.
Catherine was the previous occupant of Lockwood’s room. Lockwood’s frightened shouts cause Heathcliff to become alarmed.
Later, in the thick snow, Lockwood makes his way back to Thrushcross Grange where he becomes bedridden and unwell from the cold.
He hears the tale of the unusual family from Lockwood’s housekeeper Ellen “Nelly” Dean while he heals.
Lockwood leaves the moors after growing weary of them. He eventually makes it to Wuthering Heights while passing through the region eight months later.
Nelly, who is now the housekeeper at Wuthering Heights, is reintroduced to him. She claims that Cathy has been teaching Hareton, who is still illiterate, to read.
Heathcliff avoided the young people because he claimed he could not stand to see Catherine’s eyes, which they both shared, staring at him.
Heathcliff was having images of the deceased Catherine. He had stopped eating, and a few days later, Catherine’s old chamber contained his body.
Lockwood finds out that Cathy and Hareton intend to wed and relocate to the Grange in the present. It is up to Joseph to maintain the failing Wuthering Heights.
Nelly claims that residents have witnessed Catherine and Heathcliff’s ghosts traveling together in other countries.
Lockwood believes Catherine, Edgar, and Heathcliff are at peace after passing past their graves.
