I read this when young and loved it. The mood of the story reflects the wildness of the Yorkshire moors and Heathcliffe is the Duke of Wellington and any other hero conjured up by a romantically lonely young genius. Named my first daughter after Cathy. Still cry as Heathcliffe kicks the tree after Cathy's death and begs her to haunt him but never leave him.Read moreLess
