I am very happy to introduce a guest contributor to this space, my lovely friend Sierra. She will be talking about one of her favorite subjects, books, and I will be providing a mood board of sorts (see above) to go along with her writing. Up first, Sierra talks about Wuthering Heights:
Long before modern-day love stories like “The Notebook” and “Twilight” there was “Wuthering Heights.” While some may view it as an outdated, difficult to read piece of fiction, it is a beautiful novel that describes the torments of true love with heart-breaking accuracy.
Through the eyes of Mr. Lockwood, we learn the story of a seemingly mismatched couple that was forced to live without one another despite their unbreakable bond. Few could predict the consequences that would arise as a result of the forced separation of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff Linton. Their bitterness turns to hatred, which ultimately causes them to manipulate the lives and destroy the happiness of everyone else they are close to.
Although “Wuthering Heights” may not end the way that most readers would prefer, it is still a romantic tale of two people who would never truly be without each other.
If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger; I should not seem a part of it. — Catherine, pg. 84
