Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - Barron's Booknotes
Table of Contents


- Edgar is sick, and so can't accompany Ellen and Cathy on
their walk. Notice how little he participates in the action in the
second half of the book. He comments on things, or forbids
them, but he's never around when anything important happens.
It's appropriate that when Cathy wants something beyond her
reach she ends up at Wuthering Heights or runs into Heathcliff.
In order to reach some rosehips, for example, she needs to
climb over a wall near a locked door. Once she's on the other
side, she can't get back over; neither she nor Ellen has the key.
Just then Heathcliff comes along. Heathcliff persuades Cathy
that Linton is "dying" of love for her. This is a cruel satire on
her mother's death. It's also untrue.

NOTE: If you think back over everything Heathcliff has said so
far, you'll realize that he may have been hysterical, vengeful, or
simply confused, but that he has never told such an elaborate,
harmful lie. If you are like most readers, your estrangement
from him is now complete.
