LIST OF CHARACTERS

Cathy Linton

The daughter of Catherine and Edward Linton. She is blonde, gentle, and beautiful, without the passionate self- will that destroyed her mother. However, she has much of the first Catherine in her and, therefore, outwits Heathcliff. Heathcliff forces her to marry Linton, but she later marries Hareton for love.

Linton Heathcliff

The weak and peevish son of Heathcliff and Isabella Linton. After marrying Cathy, he dies an early death.

Hareton Earnshaw

The son of Hindley and Frances Earnshaw. Illiterate and rough in speech and dress, he has good looks, a strong bearing, and a willingness to learn. His good traits lead Cathy to love him.

Isabella Linton

Edgar Linton's sister, who becomes the unloved wife of Heathcliff and the mother of Linton Heathcliff.

Ellen Dean (Nelly)

The housekeeper at Wuthering Heights and later at Thrushcross Grange. She tells Lockwood about Heathcliff's troubled history.
