Wuthering Heights - Richard J. Dunn, Emily Brontë

"Wuthering Heights is the name of Mr. Heathcliff's dwelling.  'Wuthering' being a significant provincial adjective, descriptive of the atmospheric tumult to which its station is exposed in stormy weather.  Pure, bracing ventilation they must have up there at all times, indeed: one may guess the power of the north wind blowing over the edge, by the excessive slant of a few stunted firs at the end of the house; and by a range of gaunt thorns all stretching their limbs one way, as if craving alms of the sun."

 

I bought this book in 1990. It's about time already!
