Wuthering Heights

Emily Brontë
Edited by John Bugg

Oxford World's Classics

  • An introduction which moves beyond the cliché of Emily Brontë as an untutored genius in order to show her deep understanding of literary tradition as well as her experience in visual art and music.
  • Uses the 1976 Clarendon text, with restored the punctuation of the 1847 text.
  • Up-to-date bibliography and chronology.
  • Appendices include original reviews of the novel, Charlotte Brontë's three prefacing documents from the 1850 edition, and a selection of Emily Brontë's poetry.

New to this Edition:

  • This new edition of Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights features a revised version of the 1976 Clarendon text, along with updated annotations, and a new introduction that situates Brontë's novel within the broader context of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature, and brings fresh attention to how Heathcliff's ambiguous ethnicity impacts familiar novelistic discourses of sympathy.
