Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë( Book )

9 editions published between 1942 and 2016 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emily Jane Bront?; 30 July 1818 - 19 December 1848) was an English novelist and poet who is best known for her only novel, "Wuthering Heights", now considered a classic of English literature. Although "Wuthering Heights" is now widely regarded as a classic of English literature, it received mixed reviews when first published, and was considered controversial because its depiction of mental and physical cruelty was unusually stark, and it challenged strict Victorian ideals of the day, including religious hypocrisy, morality, social classes and gender inequality.
