Emily Brontë (1818-1848) was the author of Wuthering Heights, a poet, and a dreamer. She found inspiration in the beauty of the wilderness of Yorkshire moors. She wrote a single novel (Wuthering Heights), but it became one of the major works in English literature.
Who is the author of Wuthering Heights
? Emily Brontë
wrote the novel that was published in 1847. But the author’s name can only partially answer the question. She was one of the Brontë sisters who were famous for their literary talent. Although the work by Charlotte, Emily’s sister, was appraised by their contemporaries, modern readers appreciate Emily Brontë more. So, who was Emily? She was:
- A daughter to a priest and author;
- A sister to poets and authors;
- A student at Clergy Daughters’ School, the Roe Head Girls’ School, and the Héger Pensionnat;
- A poet;
- A teacher at Law Hill School
- A solitary young soul;
- The author of Wuthering Heights.
There are so many alternatives to choose from, but all these figures make one wild-natured female. She was brave enough to talk about passion and duty. Emily Brontë had quite a specific character. Her love for moors sheds some light on the peculiarity of her personality. In a word, she was one of the most mysterious writers in the English society of the nineteenth century.
