Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - Barron's Booknotes
Table of Contents

POINT OF VIEW

There is no single point of view in this novel. The story is told
by Lockwood, by Catherine, by Ellen Dean, by Heathcliff, by
Isabella, by the younger Cathy, and by Zillah, the other
housekeeper. Since the author never explicitly tells you what to
think, you must evaluate the story in the same way that you
evaluate each of the characters telling it.



Lockwood and Ellen, who tell most of the story, appear more
"normal" than most of the people they talk about (Lockwood is
a conventional man about town, despite his brief sojourn to
Yorkshire, and Ellen displays a practical, homespun wisdom),
but you can't overlook their biases. Neither of them can
appreciate the passion between Heathcliff and Catherine. You
as a reader, can, however. You can see much more than any
single character can tell you. Evaluating what each character
says helps to draw you into the book.
