Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights After it's book in 1847 this novel made an immediate impression on its subscribers. It sparked mixed feelings and has been doing so even today. While this publication was quite ground breaking, readers were shocked and some did not react well to this publication. But, it's clearly recognised as a traditional novel. The author of this book, though well known at the present, was unheard of in 1847, and Emily Bronte was forced to enter a male name, as girl authors were unheard of in the 19th century. Her book wouldn't have been published otherwise. Emily Bronte was born in 1818 in Thornton, a bleak moorland village near Bradford in Yorkshire. She was the fourth daughter of an Irish clergyman. The family of six children lived in solitude and because Mr Bronte was busy with his job for a vicar and their mother was sick with cancer, the kids became very close and dependent on each other. Although living in isolation, Mr Bronte was up to date with all the goings on in the world and this was maybe where Emily Bronte acquired her ideas. Emily liked to roam the moors in her free time as well as composing, where her imagination would run rampant. This book has traces of the genre. An instance of this is really a dark, mysterious and evil personality for example Heathcliff. Additionally, the dark, neglected, isolated and mysterious building of Wuthering Heights. This publication is particularly linked with the gothic genre in chapter three where Lockwood sleeps in a mysterious area that belonged to Cathy. Lockwood dreams of a strange voice outside and then an ice cold hand grabs him and the blood pours out of the hand he scraped against.
