"1801.—I have just returned from a visit to my landlord—the solitary neighbour that I shall be troubled with. This is certainly a beautiful country! In all England, I do not believe that I could have fixed on a situation so completely removed from the stir of society. A perfect misanthropist's heaven: and Mr. Heathcliff and I are such a suitable pair to divide the desolation between us. A capital fellow! He little imagined how my heart warmed towards him when I beheld his black eyes withdraw so suspiciously under their brows, as I rode up, and when his fingers sheltered themselves, with a jealous resolution, still further in his waistcoat, as I announced my name."
"Wuthering Heights" by Emily Brontë challenged strict Victorian ideals regarding religious hypocrisy, morality, and social classes. The novel was first published in 1847. "Wuthering Heights" has inspired several adaptations, including film, radio and television dramatizations.
