The text of the novel is based on the first edition of 1847.For the Fourth Edition, the editor collated the 1847 text with the two modern texts (Norton’s William J. Sale collation and the Clarendon), and found a great number of variants, including accidentals. This discovery led to changes in the body of the Norton Critical Edition text that are explained in the preface. New to "Backgrounds and Contexts" are additional letters, a compositional chronology, related prose, and reviews of the 1847 text. "Criticism" collects five important assessments of Wuthering Heights, three of them new to the Fourth Edition, including Lin Haire-Sargeant’s essay on film adaptations of the novel.

3.0 Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
I have never read Wuthering Heights before, or seen any of the movie adaptations. I was vaguely expecting some sort of romance novel. This is definately not a romance novel. It's a tale of revenge, tragedy, and human psychology. Very few of the characters are likeable, but I don't think you have...

1.0 Wuthering Heights
Pop Sugar 2019 Challenge prompts: Book by 2 female authors Call me unsophisticated. Because I hate this. I find the writing disjointed and pretentious. The characters unlikable. And the events all over the place. I enjoy classics, but this one is a big NO from me. I will stick to Jane Austen.

4.0 Byronesque Bad Boys: "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Brontë
(Original Review, 1981-01-02)The “dog scene” does not exist in the book as some sort of sick foreplay; it’s actually an extremely clever piece of writing. Besides showing Heathcliff total disregard for Isabella, it’s a reality check for those girls with romantic notions about Byronesque “bad boys”. ...

3.0 I'm sure I would prefer the movie
A tale of revenge, envy, pride, love denied, family strife, with an orphan in it? This should be my jam! Alas, it was not. This was a weird read for me. I kept trying to figure out why it was such a slog. I usually love to read about people I love to hate, and almost every character qualifies. Ins...
