Wuthering Heights – Life is Hard

Many times in life, people leave our lives and then come back into them.

However, we remember them, but they do not remember us. The same thing

happened in Emily Brontë's book Wuthering Heights. Linton, taken by his

mother to London after his birth, never knew his father, then when things

happened, he came back home. He had family fighting over where he was to

live and whom he would be around. Not knowing part of your family until

after you are fifteen is hard.

Isabella took her son, after he was born, and moved to London away from

Thrushcross Grange. At the same time, she moved away from her husband,

Heathcliff. During the time that Isabella and Linton were gone, Isabella got

sick and passed away. Right before her death, a letter came saying that she

was dying so Hindley went to visit her. While he was there, she did passed

on so he brought Linton back with him. Once back, everyone looked after him

and made him feel at home.

Heathcliff soon came to the knowledge that his son had returned to

Wuthering Heights. He then sent someone to Wuthering Heights to get Linton.

However, he did not know that Linton was already asleep so he did not get the

boy that night. The next day the boy was taken to Heathcliff at Thrushcross

Grange. The father and son were nothing alike, and Linton was intimidated by

his father. He did stay, and meet some of his relatives that he had never

seen, who helped him adjust to living there.

Everyday in our lives we run into situations that we wish we had never

been involved with. I relate to the characters of Linton and Heathcliff. I

am like Linton because people know who I am, but I never remember meeting

them, and am scared around them. I also feel the same as Hindly might have

of. This is because I would want to see the person I did not know, but then

I would not know how to cat around them. In time people come around, but

others, as with Heathcliff and Linton, never come around.

Everyday life is something we take for granted.
