Emily Bronte’s Wuthering heights is an intense demonic love story between the two lovers Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff. Heathcliff was an adopted child from the Catherine’s father. After the death of Catherine’s father Heathcliff was bullied by her brothers and soon reduced to the status of a servant. He was so in love with Catherine but Catherine chose someone else to marry who was socially acceptable and stable in every way . He got a heart broken, mad and this event has made Heathcliff crazy and disillusioned.

The intense and shattered Heathcliff ran away to establish himself, to earn money and become rich and poise. Soon he came back in the form of rich and a dignitary. He wanted to take revenge from the two families he thought made his life miserable and terrible. The novel is completely a gripping, intense, revengeful and a misery and pain of a lost love.
