The 1847 Text, Backgrounds and Criticism
Paperback      ISBN: 0393978893

For the Fourth Edition, the editor collated the 1847 text with the two modern texts (Norton s William J. Sale collation and the Clarendon), and found a great number of variants, including accidentals. This discovery led to changes in the body of the Norton Critical Edition text that are explained in the preface. New to "Backgrounds and Contexts" are additional letters, a compositional chronology, related prose, and reviews of the 1847 text. "Criticism" collects five important assessments of Wuthering Heights, three of them new to the Fourth Edition, including Lin Haire-Sargeant s essay on film adaptations of the novel."

Chitham argues that Wuthering Heights was recast and expanded between its first submission to a publisher in 1846 and its final acceptance and publication in late 1847. He suggests that the well-known chronological coherence of the book was an innovation of the second version and explores the anomalies which still remain.

Hardcover      ISBN: 178578143x

Was Rochester a murderer? Did the Reverend Bront carry a loaded pistol? What, precisely, does 'Wuthering' mean? Did the Bront s all have tiny feet?

To celebrate the bicentenary of Charlotte Bront 's birth, eminent Victorian scholar John Sutherland takes us on an A to Z ramble through the world of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bront (and not forgetting their dissolute brother Branwell).

For fans of Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, here is a lighthearted miscellany freighted with a working lifetime's scholarly expertise. With his reputation for intensely close reading of Victorian literature, John Sutherland explores the Bront s' lives, their characters, their novels and poems, and the ways in which we interpret them today -- and above all he digs out those unexpected nuggets of fact that illuminate their perennially popular works.
