Throughout the nineteenth century, the British novel displayed an increasing degree of realism (Student Resource Center np).

It may be argued that Catherine is better to have married Edgar, as he could provide sufficient love and care for her. The truth is however, that Edgar Linton is a poor excuse for a h...
  • Wuthering Heights Catherine
    917 words
    In Wuthering Heights Catherine can often be seen to be portraying two different characters, and it is for this reason that she is referred to as having a "double character". In this essay it will be examined as to when this is the case, and possibly give explanation as to why she has developed them. Wuthering Heights is seen to be very hypocritical of the social conventions around the Victorian Era, the time when it was written. Bronte pays particular attention throughout the novel to the stigma...
