Stormy title, stormy times

By Debra Dobbins

Jeremy has my sympathy today. Wuthering Heights is not the easiest book to read.

Wuthering is an adjective used by inhabitants of Northern England that describes blustery winds or turbulent weather. As you’ve probably guessed, the word heights just means a place that is higher than others.

Wuthering Heights is a metaphoric name for a story about two ill-fated lovers in rural England. Their personal lives, racked with high drama, set up conflict for the next generation, as well.

Published in 1847, Emily Bronte’s gothic novel is replete with archaic words and convoluted sentence structure. Reading it can be a challenge. Still, the novel is a fascinating look into the souls of two iconic characters, and it inspired Kate Bush’s song with the same title in 1978. To see Bush performing the song, check out a video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxZiDQ6Iw5s&feature=related.

Wuthering Heights truly is worth "sussing out." Let’s hope Jeremy perseveres.
