What do we archive as remembrances but anything we loved or hated or feared?
These three primary impulses govern our life to such an extent which nothing can equal in magnitude. Although Emily Brontë has long been overwhelmingly recognised and praised as a master storyteller in "Gothic" genre for "Wuthering Heights," the most prominent aspect of "revenge" emanating from the friction of "love" and "hatred", has deliberately been underplayed, along with some ancillary but crucial issues concerning the sanctity of the belief in Cruel Justice i. e. "Revenge". There are apparently two narrators in the novel: Miss Nelly Dean, the caretaker (more than a maid servant), the "insider"/"witness" to the "family saga" which she communicates to the other narrator, Mr. Lockwood, the new tenant in Thrushcross Grange of Mr. Heathcliff of Wuthering Heights, who has come to breathe a few months at the "misanthrope's heaven" in Yorkshire from the chaotic Society in England. What glues any sensitive and sensible reader to the novel, is NOT any spontaneous inducement of admiration for any character, who is, more often than not, a "flat" "type" and trespasses any better judgement anytime, owing to instinctive compulsions(buying very few occasional instances) or the novelty in storyline, which appalls more than it attracts; but it's the compact storytelling, the unfaltering grip over the plots which conveys mind the convenience of trading the path of a "pattern", already familiar and most importantly, the geographical setting which is as bewitching as capable of painting a melancholy mind with solitude, ignoring the emotional idiosyncrasies in the characters that provoke otherwise.
