After twelve years, he has no knowledge that he has a father that actually exists, and no answer to who his father may be. This leads him to feel alone and desperate to find love in any way that he can do so. Already he hurts because his mother’s death, but Heathcliff has no regards when he torments Linton’s spiritual being and physical being. Additionally, despite Linton’s conquest for love, Linton’s father despises him to a point that leads Linton to be rude and to display the characteristics of hate toward the one person he truly loves.
It would be entirely wrong for me to describe my childhood as alone, unwanted, vulnerable, and hurt. I am privileged; I grew up with both my parents giving me more love and attention than I could hold. Most times I grew to hate all the constant affection and attention. To me, it seemed like my overprotective parents didn’t want me to have fun and live. I didn’t understand why they cared so much about where I was going or why I couldn’t go hang out with my friends.

He gives me no hint as to what my mother was like, perhaps because of his inclination to leave the past in the past. As for my brother, I can only imagine the impact that her death had on him. He was only four years old when he witnessed the whole gruesome ordeal, and I often feel that it is not my place to inquire about her, stirring up feelings he has deliberately suppressed for so many years.
