Quote #10 – Emily Bronte

“My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods. Time will change it, I’m well aware, as winter changes the trees.  My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath – a source of little visible delight, but necessary.”

   –Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

    Now that’s a love that is strong and true. Would that I could speak so descriptively! Thank you Marcia and Emily bronte.

    • Hi, Rebecca! So great to see you posting here. I do love this story. Maybe it’s the obsessive-compulsive in me! No doubt they each loved deeply, but today, I doubt it would be considered such a healthy thing. The language involved is lovely, though, and there’s a major shiver factor going on as well. And those were always enough to keep me reading. Well, those and the moors. I’ll read just about anything set on the moors. *grin*

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

    I have to re-read this book.
    I have read it more than fifteen years ago, and at time it wasn’t a favorite. In fact of the three Brontes, I prefer Charlotte and Anne’s work.
    In fact when i think about Heathcliff and Cathy, i just think about the necessity of sending them to a shrink… i don’t like obsessive characters.

  3. It’s a lovely work, Susana, but you are certainly right in thinking Cathy & Heathcliff are twisted souls. It’s a dark & disturbing relationship, for sure, and I’m certain they would both be in long-term therapy today. Still. It’s wildly romantic, and somewhat addictive once you start on it.

    I have to agree, though…it never moved me as deeply as Jane Eyre. There was just something about brave, plain Jane and her deeply rooted convictions that touched my heart. She and Rochester were utterly compelling, and how can you go wrong with a story that includes a madwoman in the attic, eh?

    Thanks again for stopping by, and please make all the comments you want. It’s great to get some discussions going!

    I have lost count to the times that i have re-read Jane Eyre. It’s one of my favorite classics. Oh, yes, a madwoman in the attic is a sure bet for a classic, lol

    But Rochester and Jane, (sigh) the way the two of them meet…their dialogues, all of that is terrific.
    Oh, and can i just say that i don’t like Saint John??
    I don’t. There i’ve said it. I don’t like the way he wants to transform her into someone she isn´t. She’s not like him.

    I also liked reading “Villette” by Charlotte Bronte. I just didn’t like the way it all ended…

  5. Agree, agree!! But I have to admit, I’ve not read Villette. I will put that on my list immediately! Thanks for mentioning it.

    You are welcome Marcia!
    From Charlotte Bronte i’ve also read “The Professor”, but that one i didn’t appreciate it all that much. But maybe i just wasn’t in the proper mood.

    Also i still have “Shirley” from Charlotte Bronte to read. But since i have the english version, _ and since reading Villette in nineteen century english proved to be a little problematic, to say the least.. _ i still haven’t talked myself into it.
