Emily Bronte (1848) was an English novelist and poet who didn’t live long enough to give the world all she could have, but she did write Wuthering Heights, her only novel, which is now generally considered a classic in English and Western literature. 
Bronte and her sisters attempted to write several different novels and stories, eventually publishing a volume of poems under male pseudonyms entitled Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. Most of the poetry was Emily’s, but it didn’t get popular reviews, leading the sisters to begin novels. 
Emily’s sisters produced acclaimed novels like Agnes Grey and Jane Eyre, but today it’s Emily’s Wuthering Heights that is considered the best. The name of the novel comes from a Yorkshire manor on the moors, and wuthering refers to turbulence. It is turbulence that engulfs the two main characters, Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, who share a passionate love but struggle to come to grips with it. Now considered a classic, the novel’s depiction of mental and physical cruelty, written vividly by Emily due to the different ways she had suffered working and at school, threw off 19th century readers. The novel’s reputation would be restored during the 20th century.
