In the novel Wuthering Heights Emily Bronte shows how different aspects of themes are presented for a readers consideration Some of the important themes in Wuthering Heights are revenge spiritual feelings between main characters obsession selfishness and responsibility Although it may seem like a tale of villains and victims Wuthering Heights plot is extremely perplexing The story takes place in northern England in an isolated rural area The main characters involved are residents of two opposing households Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange It is a tale of a powerful love between two people which transcends all boundaries including that between life and death The author Emily Bronte uses parallelism in this novel Much of what happens in the first half of the story corresponds to events in the second half This parallelism extends also to the characters the first generation of characters is comparable to the second generation In many ways these characters are duplicates of each other and they share many traits This is not the case for Catherine Earnshaw and Cathy Linton a mother and her daughter The contrast between these two characters is one of the key themes in the novel They are different in numerous aspects of their personalities and lifestyles Catherine Earnshaw and Cathy Linton differ a great deal when it comes to their family life Catherines father did not love her because she was forever misbehaving He once told her Nay Cathy I cannot love thee thourt worse than thy brother Go say thy prayers child and ask gods pardon I doubt thy mother and I must rue the day we ever reared thee It could be argued that Catherine is slightly victimised because her father does not appear to love her but the reason for this is her misbehaviour In relating the tale to Lockwood Nelly noted that young Catherine was such a wild wicked slip that she never seemed as content as when she was being scolded
