CHAPTER 25

In the last chapter Edgar put a stop to Cathy's visits to
Wuthering Heights. In this one he finally consents to her
meeting Linton on the moors. Edgar is dying, and he hopes
Linton will console her. How you react to Edgar's wistful
speech on death will depend on how you react to the
Thrushcross Grange side of life. His tone is gentle.



Compare the soft rhythms to the vigorous often abrupt, cadences in
Heathcliff's speech. Edgar is magnanimous. He says he doesn't
care whether Heathcliff gets what he wants, as long as Cathy is
happy. Yet there is also something lifeless in Edgar Linton. He
seems to be as happy lying on his dead wife's grave as he is
walking with his live daughter. And you may ask yourself why
he can't check things out for himself once in a while. Why does
he always rely on Ellen? At the end of the chapter you learn
that Linton Heathcliff is dying, too.
