My sister got this for Christmas, she loves getting books for Christmas and I was able to give her 5 for the price of 1.

One of the first things I like about this edition is that it utilizes the original 1847 text. Another thing I liked about it, and this is obviously why anyone should buy this particular edition is that it contains an introduction to various critical schools relevant to the study of Wuthering Heights. Now these essays are a bit dated especially since the Norton Critical abounds in newer criticism. However, this version probably helps more than the Norton because it removes some of the contemporary criticisms and goes straight into prominent pieces that discuss the work at hand. I highly recommend this book for anyone currently going through the Comprehensive Examination stage for an M.A. exam. You won't regret it!

Set on the moors, it is a pity that the Hound of the Baskervilles didn't get 'em. This would have saved a lot of characters a lot of grief.

An orphan is taken in, and the problems start there as he grows up, has his own problems and inflicts them on others.

The great detective has something to say about such places :

"But look at these lonely houses, each in its own fields, filled
for the most part with poor ignorant folk who know little of the law. Think of
the deeds of hellish cruelty, the hidden wickedness which may go on, year in,
year out, in such places, and none the wiser. Had this lady who appeals to us
for help gone to live in Winchester, I should never have had a fear for her. It
is the five miles of country which makes the danger."
