First Person Narration in Remains of the Day and Wuthering Heights The primary similarity between these books is the use of a framing device that introduces the major plot. However these have different purposes and impacts in each novel, in Remains of the Day the framing of Stevens travel serves as a setting the scene for the novel as it starts with a date and the setting of Darlington Hall that's introduced at the prologue. It also partly introduces us into the characters of Stevens and Mr Darlington especially throughout the language used by Stevens "It seems increasingly likely that I really will undertake the expedition that has been preoccupying my imagination now for some days" this is the first assembly with Stevens and immediately his course and character to some level have been made known. Wuthering Heights starts in precisely the exact same way but the effect is more geared towards introducing characters and the surroundings. It has the feature of introducing the stage the novel is at in terms how the current day matches into the story as it's set in retrospect whereas Remains of the Day has the effect of moving forwards physically but backwards mentally, it evolves while being in the past while Wuthering Heights appears to stops in time then go back and come up to date. At the ends of both books the frame is finished by Lockwood (WH) who completes the story and gives his own understanding of these that suggest that he has misunderstood the narrative "and wondered how anyone could ever imagine unquiet slumbers for the sleepers in that quiet earth" suggesting that he has not recognized the turmoil which has gone before and with the introduction of Catherine and Heathcliffs spectres seems unlikely to end.
