Describe how Emily Bronte presents the character of Heathcliff in "Wuthering heights". Pay close attention to chapter 9 and chapter 15.
In this essay I shall be describing how Emily Bronte presents the character of Heathcliff in the well known novel of 'Wuthering heights'. Wuthering heights is set in the early 1800's in the Yorkshire Moore's. The story follows the life of Heathcliff from his adoption from the streets of Liverpool by Mr Earnshaw. Heathcliff's childhood was not very stable as he is blighted by bullying from Mr Earnshaw's son, Hindley. This may be partly the reason behind his cruel manner.
In the period which Wuthering heights was set England was under the reign of Queen Victoria. Wuthering heights is written by a woman called Emily Bronte this novel is very much influenced by Emily Bronte's up-bringing. Emily Bronte grew up in the last days of rural England in the Yorkshire moors this has left its mark on the Bronte children, Emily, Charlotte, Patrick branwell, Maria, Elizabeth and Anne. Another influence on Bronte's writing was Tabitha Ankroyd, a maid in their household who told stories about fairies and ghosts. These folk beliefs and rituals are scattered through Wuthering heights
