Description

In addition to the complete, authoritative edition of the novel, this volume contains, among other material: excerpts from The Gondol Saga, the juvenalia that Emily wrote with sister Anne and the basis for the later Wuthering Heights; newspaper accounts of the Liverpool slave trade, believed to be influential in the creation of Heathcliff's background; Irish folktales told by the Reverend Bronte to his children, which were influential in the composition of the novel; and a collection of recent critical approaches to the novel.
