Wuthering Heights is Emily Bronte's first and only novel. It was published in 1847, a year before Bronte's death at the age of 30. To evade contemporary prejudice against female writers, the novel was originally published under the pseudonym Ellis Bell. Now considered a classic of English literature, Wuthering Heights was received with mixed reviews at the time it was published. Victorian readers found the story of retribution shocking and brutal in its descriptions of passionate, ungoverned love and its exploration of the dark side of human psychology. The novel is set in England's wild, bleak Yorkshire Moors and centers around two intermarried familes who live in two English manors, Thrushcross Grange and Wuthering Heights.
