The Importance of Chapter Nine from the Wuthering Heights Chapter nine is a Vital chapter in the publication for several reasons. Primarily, it is a considerable portion of the total plot; the events within this chapter dictate the remaining plot of the narrative. Secondly, it's in this chapter that the real natures and emotions of the main characters, Cathy and Heathcliff are shown. Also, chapter nine shows aspects of Victorian society and literature, which add to the viewers comprehension of the lifetime of 'Wuthering Heights'. The chapter opens with Hindley coming home drunk. This part of the chapter comes with a strong atmosphere, the reader picks up the feeling which the home is usually very stressed and the tension is building up between the characters. Bronte uses wicked language to improve the build up of anxiety in the text. She uses sentences like 'I need to kill some of you', ' 'devilish', ' 'bad,' and 'together with the help of ' Satan'. These are all references to hell and sinful things add the final touches to create an atmosphere for the reader. The principal story line at this moment also shows how tense the atmosphere really is as Hindley requires a knife to Nelly's mouth threatening to ram it down her throat. Nelly answers 'but I really don't like the carving knife, '' Mr Hindley, ''' this shows that she is not fearful of Hindley. Following this Hindley then selects up Hareton and asks Nelly for a pair of scissors to trim his hair. Hindley then proceeds to shoot Hareton upstairs and slides him over the balcony. At this time Hindley hears a sound as Heathcliff comes in he then drops Hareton as a natural instinct Heathcliff grabs him. Nelly then comes down and requires Hareton. .
