Emily Brontë • Emily Jane Brontë was an English novelist, best remembered for her novel, Wuthering Heights. • Emily was born on 30 July 1818 in the village of Thornton , in the Yorkshire moors. • Emily and her sisters were self-educated • (1818-1848) In 1839 Emily with Charlotte travelled to Belgium. The Brontë sisters’ pseudonyms: Charlotte was Currer Bell, Emily was Ellis Bell and Anne was Acton Bell.

<<My sister's disposition was not naturally gregarious; circumstances favoured and fostered her tendency to seclusion; a except to go to church or take a walk on the hills, she rarely crossed the threshold of home. Though her feeling for the people round was benevolent, intercourse with them she never sought; nor, with very few exceptions, ever experienced. And yet she know them: knew their ways, their language, their family histories; she could hear of them with interest, and talk of them with detail; but WITH them, she rarely exchanged a word. >> [Charlotte]

Woolf turns to Wuthering Heights. Her sense of Emily’s genius is profound. ‘Wuthering Heights is a more difficult book to understand than Jane Eyre, because Emily was a greater poet than Charlotte.’ ‘When Charlotte wrote she said with eloquence and splendour and passion “I love”, “I hate”, “I suffer”. Her experience, though more intense, is on a level with our own. But there is no ‘I’ in Wuthering Heights.There are no governesses.There are no employers.There is love, but it is not the love of men and women. Emily was inspired by some more general conception. The impulse which urged her to create was not her own suffering or her own injuries. She looked out upon a world cleft into gigantic disorder and felt within her the power to unite it in a book.That ambition is to say something through the mouths of her characters which is not merely “I love” or “I hate”, but “we, the whole human race”
