Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine's father. After Mr Earnshaw's death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine's brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.

I love how Brontë so bluntly states what rhetorical device she is referring to in this paragraph.
Wew! I promise I understand this sentence very well without comprehending much.

After more than a year I found a newly developed courage to read this book. I didn't continue last year cuz I'm having headache comprehending everything in the first chapter. Instead I watched the movie. I hope I can finish this story this time.
