Would I pick up classics by myself? Probably not. Do I really hate some of the ones I’ve been forced to read? Heck yes. Have I kind of enjoyed some of them? I very grudgingly have to say yes here. I’m not sure if I would ever pick up something that is considered a “classic” voluntarily, even with my goal of branching out more. I’ve always had an aversion to them and I know some people feel the same way. I thought it would be fun to talk about why I, personally, am not the biggest fans of them.
The windswept moors are the unforgettable setting of this tale of the love between the foundling Heathcliff and his wealthy benefactor’s daughter, Catherine. Through Catherine’s betrayal of Heathcliff and his bitter vengeance, their mythic passion haunts the next generation even after their deaths. Incorporating elements of many genres—from gothic novels and ghost stories to poetic allegory—and transcending them all, Wuthering Heights is a mystifying and powerful tour de force.
Wooo, welcome to the second post of the series! I have a couple books I have to read for my English class this year and I thought it would be fun review them here! I can remove the filter I use in class and really let my true feelings show about the certain books! The Great Gatsby was the first up (you can read the here if you are so inclined!) and this time, it’s Wuthering Heights. I would like to start off by saying that I didn’t really like it, so I am going to be negative haha.
