An Examination of Emily Bronte’s, Wuthering Heights

4 April 2015
This paper questions whether great literature adheres to a particular genre and if there is a need for it to do so.

In this paper the author examines romantic narratives and considers some of the reasons why this type of novel became quite popular over the course of the 19th century Victorian era. The author moves on to consider the Gothic genre and makes comparisons to other acclaimed writers.

From the paper:

Ultimately, to identify a work of literature of any scope as existing within a particular genre will always result in a mixture of elements, as reflected in section four of Jameson’s Magical Narratives essay on the subject. Unless an author writes quite self-consciously with a particular genre, which Bronte did not, such construction is ultimately artificial.
