Wuthering Heights

New Edition

Emily Brontë
Edited by Ian Jack and with an Introduction by Helen Small

Oxford World's Classics

  • One of the most famous love stories in the English language, the passionate tale of Catherine and Heathcliff is here presented in a new edition that examines the qualities that make it such a powerful and compelling novel.
  • Introduction by Helen Small considers the novel's oddness and power, its amorality and Romantic influences, its structure and narration, and the sadistic violence embodied in the character of Heathcliff.
  • Retains the authoritative Clarendon text and notes, and new notes identify literary allusions hitherto unnoticed.
  • Appendix of selected poems by Emily Brontë of relevance to the novel.
  • Appendix containing Charlotte Brontë's 'Biographical Notice of Ellis & Acton Bell' and 'Preface to the New Edition'.
  • Up-to-date bibliography and chronology.
