Maybe this is the main problem or question touched in Wuthering Heights that is explored through all the novel. Cathy and Heathcliff grew up together, Catherine - passionate wild nature and Heathcliff - miserable pauper, but with the heart and soul, that are so suffered and wounded. They fell in love with each other at first sight. They kept each other, protected each other from angry and boring sermons of Hindley and from religious senile grumbling of Joseph. It seems to us, such pure childish affection has to grow into something greater, So that began to do, but suddenly, we find out a new acting personage - Edgar Linton, young rich nobleman, he attracts for a short time (I repeat, for a short time) Catherine's attention.
The forced “love” that existed between the relationships of Edgar and Catherine and Catherine II and Linton is one type of love to the novel. The absence of love in the marriage of Isabella and Heathcliff adds another depth to the story. The great love that caused Hindley to result to alcoholism following his wife’s death adds another form of love to Wuthering Heights. The “happy-ending” love between Catherine II and Hareton is another type of love within this novel. Finally, the love between Catherine and Heathcliff that began as a love between playmates in childhood and transformed to obsession following Catherine’s death is a powerful type of love in this story that affects all of the rest of the characters.
(2) Emily Bronte’s purpose in writing Wuthering Heights is to depict unfulfilled love in a tragic romance novel and hence the theme of Wuthering Heights is love is pain. Emily Bronte reveals an important life lesson that love is not sufficient for happiness and if anything, stirs up more agony. This message is important because, although it is difficult to accept, the message is devastatingly honest. In Wuthering Heights, two characters named Heathcliff and Catherine loved each other immensely. However, their pride and adamance disabled them from making any progress on their romantic relationship.
Analysis of Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte Wuthering Heights is, in many ways, a novel of juxtaposed pairs: Catherine’s two great loves for Heathcliff and Edgar; the two ancient manors of Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange; the two families, the Earnshaws and the Lintons; Heathcliff’s conflicting passions of love and hate. Additionally, the structure of the novel divides the story into two contrasting halves. The first deals with the generation of characters represented by Catherine, Heathcliff, Hindley, Isabella, and Edgar, and the second deals with their children—young Catherine, Linton, and Hareton. Many of the same themes and ideas occur in the second half of the novel as in the first half, but they develop quite differently. While the first half ends on a note of doom and despair with Catherine’s death and Heath-cliff’s gradual descent into evil, the novel as a whole ends on a note of hope, peace, and joy, with young Catherine’s proposed marriage to Hareton Earnshaw.
