Wuthering Heights, the only novel of Emily Bronte published in 1847 before only one year Bronte died only when she was 30. Charlotte Bronte then altered the text, and set it to be published as a posthumous second edition in 1850. Wuthering Heights is the name of the farmhouse where the narrative opens up. The book’s center topic is the vicious consequence of both envy and ruthlessness on the jealous or revengeful human beings and on their communities. The novelist has beautifully used the title of the novel to create a pleasing as well as gothic atmosphere. Both these elements are as important as the characters because these things are really worked upon as closely and minutely as the characters themselves.
