Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Charlotte and Emily Bronte were the two eldest surviving daughters of a clergyman s family. Born and brought up in Yorkshire, they spent much of their lives in the village of Haworth, where their home is now a museum. Emily was extremely shy and never married, and died from tuberculosis at the age of 30. Charlotte married a curate, Arhtur Bell Nicholls. It is believed that she died while pregnant due to dehydration brought on by a severe case of hyperemesis gravidarum. Jane Austen (1775-1817) is considered to be one of the finest writers in English Literature. Next year will see many commemorations of the 200th anniversary of her death. Born and brought up in Hampshire in the south of England, her witty writing has entertained numerous generations of readers, and her works have been adapted into many films and TV series."

5.0 von 5 Sternen “Living among clowns and misanthropists…” 8. Mai 2017
Von John P. Jones III - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This will be the only novel of Emily Brontë that I will ever read – for the very good reason that it is the only one she ever wrote. She was born in 1818, and would die a (very) mere 30 years later, in 1848, of tuberculosis, and perhaps some assorted complications. Yet another writer who died of TB. Admittedly, I have confused her with her older sister, Charlotte, who most famously wrote Jane Eyre (Penguin Classics). A remarkable achievement for two sisters; they produced classic works of English literature that resonate today.

This is a dark, gloomy, unhappy novel, not for the “fun-read” crowd, or those looking for the triumph of good over evil. Early in the novel, Brontë describes the setting as “A perfect misanthropist’s heaven” and towards the end to the novel, provides the subject concerning the living conditions of one of the moderately sympathetic characters. The setting is the Yorkshire Dales. The time is the late 1700’s. Brontë faithfully reproduces the Yorkshire accent of one of the characters, which, at times, makes it a tough read (even today, the heavy brogue is difficult to understand). Virtually the entire novel takes place on two estates, Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights, which are four miles apart. Liverpool is mentioned once, as is London, but they are far beyond the lives of the inhabitants of these two estates. I’ve been mispronouncing the title for decades, so it was informative to learn that “Wuthering” is “a significant provincial adjective, descriptive of the atmospheric tumult to which its station is exposed in stormy weather.”

The novel commences with a Mr. Lockwood who is seeking a bit of peace and tranquility in a rural setting and makes the mistake of renting Trushcross Grange (which is the better of the two estates) from a Mr. Heathcliff, who resides at Wuthering Heights. Due to that aforementioned stormy weather – in the form of a snow storm – which prevents Lockwood from returning to his new rental, he spends the night at Wuthering, to the accompaniment of some ghosts. Upon his return to Trushcross the next day, the servant, a middle aged woman, Mrs. Nelly Dean, and the only seemingly level-headed and sane resident of the two estates, provides the tale of the interactions of these residents, which is almost the entire novel.

Wuthering Heights has been in the possession of the Earnshaw family since 1500. Hindley Earnshaw decides to walk to Liverpool for some supplies (it is a substantial walk!) While there, he takes pity on a mistreated gypsy youth, who will go by the name of Heathcliff, and yes, would be the same one in possession of the titled estate, and the renter of the other. How all this transpired is the essence of this dark tale. “No good deed goes unpunished,” is one cynical formulation. Or is it the fact that the “good deed” was profoundly flawed, and the abuse, in another form, of the gypsy child would continue at Wuthering? Whatever the motivation, Heathcliff is a profoundly evil and unhappy person. As are many of the other characters. Was it all just another updated Greek tragedy, whereby the characters doom themselves?

Very little is known of Emily Brontë, since she led a reclusive life. I found myself thinking about her, and the circumstances that led to her death, at an age when so many are in full vigor and promise. Was it any wonder that she would write a morose novel in which so many characters died young, often from “frail constitutions” (which seemed to be TB), and often complicated by booze and even childbirth? And Brontë seemed to have a deep understanding into the complex motivations of many individuals, and faithfully depicted them in her work. “Vexatious phlegm” is one of the apt expression from her novel. And if “revenge” is the only reason to live, what happens when it is achieved?

No question, it is a great work of literature. I’m very glad I read it, and am equally glad that I am finished with it, and the many dark hearts contained therein. Overall, 5-stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It's a classic. If you haven't read it, you should. Or listen to it, if you prefer. 7. August 2015
Von Jim Hall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
There’s a reason Jane Eyre is a classic: besides its literary values – which are many – it’s a darn good story. It is also an interesting commentary on Victorian English society, on women’s issues, on religion, as well as self-worth, etc.

My only (very small) niggling qualm about the story is a few deus ex machina contrivances, such as Jane’s uncle dying at a propitious moment, when all her life she has believed herself to be entirely alone in the world. Still, it’s explained – the evil Aunt Reed has withheld the information from her.

The entire story seems very Dickensian, told from a female point of view. (It was published in 1847, ten years after Oliver Twist and two years before David Copperfield.) It has love, suspense, and a whole lot of symbolism to boot, if you care to look for it. I loved it.

As a part of my personal "Classics I Should Have Read But Didn't" series, I listened to this on my daily commute, and for anyone who finds Victorian-era novels a bit daunting, I would recommend the version from Audible.com, read by one of my faves, Emma Messenger. Her narration is, as always, brilliant.

Note: After you've read Jane Eyre, you might enjoy the genre-bending Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. The first novel in the series is The Eyre Affair, featuring Jane, Rochester, and the cast of Jane Eyre in a wildly inventive (and quite funny) alternate-reality crime novel.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Classic for a reason 29. Juni 2015
Von Mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Another step in my journey of reading or re-reading classics I missed or have forgotten; and another instance of realizing why classics are classics. Reading this later in life gives a different picture of the story, the writing style and the the times from which it came.

This would be a wonderful mother-daughter read. It brings forward opportunities to talk about relationships - what makes one good or bad - as well as dedication, study, and a myriad of other topics that an adolescent faces. As Jane's life is detailed the unwanted child, bullying, powerlessness all rise up; so too does the consequence of standing up for oneself. The difficulties of poverty are shown and the co-existence of good people and poor characters within one school. The true impact that one friend can make, despite a brevity in the friendship, shows the power we each carry. The need to stretch and leave what you know, to spread ones wings, appears and brings the blessings and tragedies of life. Opportunities that are mixed and, finally, a happy-ever-after, without perfection, concludes the story. While Jane's insights are far too advanced for the age of her character throughout much of the book, they provide a young reader a path of exploration and the adult reader easy questions to discuss. ("How do you think Jane came to that realization or conclusion?")

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unforgettable characters and a top notch story 7. Januar 2017
Von J. W. B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is one of my favorite books, and I've read it many times. I come back to it every few years like it's an old friend. That may seem strange given that there are lots of unpleasant folks in it: Cathy's a manipulative brat, Heathcliff's a sadist who ruins more than one person in the name of unrequited love, and Edgar's nice but a bit too wimpy. But the emotional highs and lows this novel puts me through, and the characters themselves, are unforgettable.

As far as questionable content...well, it was the late 1700s/early 1800s, so people are generally more physically abusive to each other than would be condoned today. There's also not any outright sex, but some form of adultery is certainly implied between Cathy and Heathcliff after she marries Edgar. I've never been sure whether I'm supposed to like Heathcliff or not...I feel sorry for him for all the abuse he goes through in his early life (and how he still doesn't get the girl) but he turns out so vicious and abusive to those around him that it's hard to sympathize with him.

Still, I give it five stars because Emily Bronte's writing style captivates me in every time with its page-turning plot and characters. Surely, a few years from now, I'll be drawn back in.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dark and Dramatic 19. November 2014
Von audrey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
[This specific free kindle edition ASIN B004UJAOLM is formatted well and allows navigation to specific chapters.]

Mr. Lockwood is the new tenet of Thrushcross Grange a beautiful house opposite of the foreboding Wuthering Heights occupied by his irritable landlord. Cooped up in his new residence recuperating Mr. Lockwood persuades his housekeeper to tell him the tale of his landlord and how things came to be as they are. She reiterates the dark history of the two houses filled with love, loss, jealousy and the desperate pursuit of vengeance.

Wuthering Heights is a classic Gothic novel. I put off reading this book for a long time so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I actually enjoyed reading it. I adored how dark and dramatic it was. The setting and time period were wonderfully conveyed. The supernatural elements further heightened the atmosphere of the setting.

The narrative approach was interesting. Its conversational gossipy tone and perceptive look at the characters' lives made it an engaging read. The fact that the main narrator seemed the most level headed heightened the drama. I found the overly melodramatic moments amusing and continually wanted to know more about the characters. There were so many layers to the story that I'll definitely have to reread it at some point.

It was a rewarding experience to finally read the book that influenced some of the authors I follow and identify which elements inspired books I've previously read. So even though it was my first time reading Wuthering Heights it still felt oddly familiar.
