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.

For those who are confused, this ENTIRE book is from Lockwood’s POV. Even this paragraph is currently being said by him.
                              Heathcliff just nodded in affirmation to Lockwood’s question.
                              Each character has their own dialogues but they are mostly followed by Lockwood’s observation.
I want to live there too. Although  I'm just a mild misanthrope :)

Gosh this is only for my English assignment, thank you so much wattpad for being so useful!
It just shows that there is someone far stranger than you lolz
Here's a question: when and how did Hareton's name get carved above the door??? I figured Hindley was too far gone at that point to assert Hareton as the owner of the property
