Wuthering Heights

Wuthering Heights


The grandmother of Cold Comfort Farm, Wuthering Heights itself is the archetypal lower-class gothic dwelling and the weather on the gothically bleak moors with their tortured thorn trees is usually gothically tempestuous. The stranger who unleashes turbulence into the family fold is also a gothic figure (Mr Lockwood reasonably compares the adult Heathcliff to a ghoul or a vampire) and the passion and thirst for revenge that drives the story are key gothic themes. No hint of parody, though: this story is intended to pierce the heart and it does.
