AUTHOR OF THE BOOK

Emily Bronte was born in Thornton, Yorkshire, in the north of England. Between the years 1824 and 1825 Emily attended the school at Cowan Bridge with Charlotte, and then was largely educated at home. She wrote a few letters and was interested in mysticism. Her first novel, Wuthering Heights (1847), a story-within-a-story, did not gain immediate success as Charlotte’s Jane Eyre, but it has acclaimed later fame as one of the most intense novels written in the English language. Wuthering Heights was the only novel that she ever wrote. Emily Bronte died of tuberculosis in the late 1848.
