Wuthering Heights: Distortions and Exaggerations Heathcliff cried vehemently, "I cannot live without my life! I can't live without my soul!" Emily Brontë distorts many common components in Wuthering Heights to improve the quality of her publication. Among the distortions is Heathcliff's undying love for Catherine Earnshaw. Additionally, Brontë perverts the vindictive hatred that fills and runs Heathcliff's life after he loses Catherine. Ultimately, she prolongs departure, making it even more painful and insufferable. Heathcliff's love for Catherine exceeds the normal physical "true love" into spiritual love. He can withstand anything against him to be with her. After Hindley became the master of Wuthering Heights, he flogged Heathcliff just like a servant. Although Heathcliff could have simply run away, his choice to endure the physical pains shows his unrelenting devotion to Catherine. Fortunately, Catherine feels as deeply for Heathcliff because he does for her, explaining to Nelly that "Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same" Their love for each other is so passionate that they can't possibly live apart. In Catherine's death, Heathcliff expects that she won't rest, but will haunt him until he dies. This absurdity contradicts the traditional norm that you should pray that the dead rest in peace. Near the conclusion of this novel, we learn that Catherine has haunted Heathcliff, allowing him only fleeting glances of her. This shows that despite their physical separation, nothing may part them spiritually. When Heathcliff expires and unites with Catherine once more, the neighbors find them haunt the moors. We finally see the power of the love; Does this love conquer physical barriers, it transcends time also...
