[MY BOOKISH OBSESSIONS] October 2017 //WUTHERING HEIGHTS//

I remember when I first read it. And I remember feeling cheated. YES. THAT’S how I was left feeling by the end of the book. A story filled with passion + heartbreak + revenge PITIFUL revenge, I could not get it out of my mind for MONTHS! I was introduced to Gothic Literature by this very, soul-wrenching book and it became a part of me. And so, I have decided to discuss WUTHERING HEIGHTS this month.

All you people who haven’t read it yet, I hope that by the end of the month, I’ll be able to convince you to give it a try. And those who HAVE read it – WELL, YOU JUST FOUND AN OUTLET TO LET YOUR EMOTIONS FLY, PEOPLE!!!

I MADE IT. YAYYYYY!!!! (Isn’t it sooo very dark and pretty???)

(OKAY, THIS WAS MY FEEBLE ATTEMPT AT MAKING AN AESTHETICs FOR WUTHERING HEIGHTS. I KNOW, IT’S NOT MUCH BUT IT DOES REPRESENT THE BOOK IN ALL IT’S DARKNESS AND PASSION AND SADNESS. )

So I can’t talk more about the book JUST YET *eye roll – OBVIOUSLY* BUT I can share with you SOME (because BELIEVE ME THERE ARE A LOTTT!!!) of my favourite quotes. πŸ™‚

β™₯Β β€œMy love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I’m well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Healthcliff! He’s always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.”

β™₯Β β€œYou know that I could as soon forget you as my existence!”

β™₯Β β€œIt is hard to forgive, and to look at those eyes, and feel those wasted hands,’ he answered. ‘Kiss me again; and don’t let me see your eyes! I forgive what you have done to me. I love my murdererβ€”but yours! How can I?”

β™₯Β β€œCatherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living. You said I killed you–haunt me then. The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe–I know that ghosts have wandered the earth. Be with me always–take any form–drive me mad. Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!”

β™₯Β β€œI wish you had sincerity enough to tell me whether Catherine would suffer greatly from his loss: the fear that she would restrains me. And there you see the distinction between our feelings: had he been in my place and I in his, though I hated him with a hatred that turned my life to gall, I never would have raised a hand against him. You may look incredulous, if you please! I never would have banished him from her society as long as she desired his. The moment her regard ceased, I could have torn his heart out, and drunk his blood! But, till then – if you don’t believe me, you don’t know me – till then, I would have died by inches before I touched a single hair of his head!”

Wuthering Heights holds a permanent place in my heart and mind and I HOPE I CAN MAKE YOU SAY THE SAME.Β

  1. The aesthetic was amazing… When I saw it my immediate thoughts were “woah, that looks deep” and then it got even deeper with the quotes that often frequented MURDER! πŸ˜‚ Very good all in all.

      Oh, NO!! It won’t get you kicked out of ANYWHERE. πŸ˜‚ You are ALWAYS welcome at my humble blog. 😁 AND YOU KNOW WHAT? I’d love to talk to you about the book and your dislike for it. It would give me new perspective and increase both our understanding about Wuthering Heughts.

    1. I KNOW RIGHT??!?! It just drained my ability to feel for some time. The only thing I could think about was Heathcliff’s mad passion for Cathy and their tragic end.. GAAAHHHHHHH!!! I have suffered A LOT of emotional wreckage due to that book.😞 And yet, I keep coming back for some more clobbering. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ HOW SMART AM I, EH? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      AWWW!! 😍😍 THANK YOU SOO MUCH!! ❀❀ You should try it, you know. They are surprisingly easy to make. I would love to see what you come up with. GIVE IT A GO. 😁 I’ll be waiting…….

  4. I think I was the only person in my AP Lit class for 12th grade that actually liked this book! My roommate and I watched the movie together one of our first nights in my new apartment, and I’d forgotten how dark and angsty the novel is. (But the movie we watched didn’t exactly follow the book as well as it should have.)

    1. OH MYY!! I AM GLAD YOU LIKED READING WUTHERING HEIGHTS. It is absolutely gorgeous and conveys the madness that comes with passion so beautifully….I just….ARRGHHH!!

      Oh, which movie did you watch? I have only watched the adaptation starring Tom Hardy. 😐

      1. I…I’m actually not sure which one I watched. It came in a giant box set of movies. I’ll have to wait until I get home and figure it out! I think it was one that was actually a mini TV series, because it seems to be divided into three parts. I’ll check, though!

  5. I read this book back when I was in grade 7, so I don’t really remember the story but what I do remember is that I had my emotions flying around after reading it. I’ve been trying to read it again so hopefully then I’ll come back and comment here x

    1. Yeah. Wuthering Heights can do that to a person – leave them gasping for normality, for mundane life because sometimes, ALL THAT PASSION CAN PLAY TRICKS ON OUR MINDS AND OH BOY, both Cathy and Heathcliff’s fate was tragic and YET SATISFYING and I don’t even know why! That’s the kind of frustration I feel. πŸ˜…

      I will be waiting for your commebt then.YAYY. 😁

  6. The aesthetics are sooo on point! I read Wuthering Heights a couple of years back and I loved it pretty much. This book was suuuuper dark but I loved it anyway! But I’m glad you enjoyed it way more than me!! πŸ˜€

    1. REALLYYYY?? 😍 Tell you what, there is NO FEELING as satisfying as getting someone to agree to read the book you loved!! Ahhhhhhh!!! Please read it and once you’ve been emotionally DESTROYED by it, head over and we can cry together. πŸ˜‚ YOU HAVE MY WORD. πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚
