There Lockwood finds an odd assemblage: Heathcliff who seems to be a gentleman, but his manners are uncouth; the reserved mistress of the house who is in her mid-teens; and a young man who seems to be a member of the family, yet dresses and speaks as if he is a servant.

The Grange housekeeper, Ellen Dean, who is looking after him, tells him the story of the family at the Heights during his convalescence.

About the Author

Charlotte Brontë (1816-1855) was an English novelist and poet, renowned for her contribution to English literature as a prodigious writer during the Victorian era. She was the eldest of the three Brontë sisters, who became famous for their powerful and innovative novels. Brontë's literary style was marked by a profound understanding of human psychology, social criticism, and an unflinching exploration of the interiority of her characters, which was rare for female writers at the time. Her novel 'Jane Eyre,' published in 1847 under the pseudonym Currer Bell, is considered a classic of English literature. The book offers a strong narrative voice and a critical stance on gender roles, morality, and class system of Victorian England. Although 'Wuthering Heights' is actually her sister Emily Brontë's work, Charlotte's own novels, such as 'Shirley' (1849) and 'Villette' (1853), similarly provide depth and a revolutionary outlook on contemporary social norms, catapulting her influence beyond her time. Charlotte's writing remains celebrated for its originality, emotional force, and keen observational skill, enveloped within the stark moors of Yorkshire that inspired the Brontë siblings' unique tales. Her works have inspired numerous adaptations and continue to attract scholarly attention, securing Brontë's position as a towering figure in literary heritage.
