“If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.”
You start the story in the shoes of Mr. Lockwood, the new vivacious and friendly resident in a quaint manor named Thrushcross Grange. He, shortly after the opening, gains the acquaintance of his dark and brooding landlord, Mr. Heathcliff.
A winter storm causes our protagonist to stay overnight in his gentlemanly proprietor’s humble abode, which is known as Wuthering Heights.
Mr. Lockwood begins to question his motives of befriending the unusual neighbors.
Mr. Heathcliff’s family, along with the odd, weird noises throughout the house provoke Mr. Lockwood to have a horrible stay. Eventually, through the eyes of Lockwood we see that the house is not really haunted, but rather peculiar.
You’ll unravel why exactly Mr. Heathcliff is the hollow man he portrays himself to be. What the noises Mr. Lockwood was hearing the evening he spent at Wuthering Heights. And the hidden betrayal of love and perception in this dark, and brooding novel.
