Like the house itself, Wuthering Heights is set on the bleak Pennine moors, a fitting backdrop to this story of love, torment and revenge, and a landscape familiar to Emily Bronte. Heathcliff is a foundling, adopted and raised as one of the Earnshaw children. With this act of charity, the seeds of ardent love and jealousy are planted.
Catherine Earnshaw becomes devoted to Heathcliff, while her brother Hindley always views him as a rival for Wuthering Heights. Their passions grow to involve their neighbours - the Lintons - spilling over to affect the next generation, until Catherine and Heathcliff are reunited for eternity.
