Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights
Examines Bronte’s feminist critique, in `Wuthering Heights` through the heroine, Catherine Earnshaw.
This paper analyzes Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, published in 1847 when England’s political climate showed evidence of an emerging feminist movement. The paper examines the heroine, Catherine Earnshaw and her figurative double, Heathcliff to illuminate Bronte’s commentary on the maddening confinement of female individuality.
As a result of her hopelessness, Heathcliff becomes Catherine’s device for strength. So when little Catherine asked for a whip, she got Heathcliff instead who proved to be her metaphorical whip in using him as a tool for power.
