Bronte wrote a horrifying story of deceit unrequited love and ghosts but at the same time she wrote a bittersweet narration of the tangled web of two families These families the Lintons and the Earnshaws were intertwined through a series of marriages and love affairs and had a great effect on each others lives In Wuthering Heights the first generation was the parents Mr and Mrs Linton and Mr and Mrs Earnshaw The second generation was Edgar and Isabelle Linton and Hindley and Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff an orphan that Mr Earnshaw found on the street As soon as Heathcliff started living at the Earnshaw home Wuthering Heights relationships started to dissolve The first to dissolve was the father-son relationship between Mr Earnshaw and Hindley Heathcliff ended their relationship because Mr Earnshaw tended to favor Heathcliff and Hindley was aggravated by this favoritism The next relationship to be destroyed by Heathcliff was the relationship between Nelly and Catherine After Mr Earnshaw died Nelly tried to take care of Heathcliff and she saw that Catherine was insulting him Heathcliff may not have meant to end Nellys positive feelings towards Catherine but he managed to indirectly obliterate their friendship Although the intensity of the human relationships in Wuthering Heights is exaggerated it is still relevant to emotions in the real world The intensity of the relationships involving Heathcliff always skyrocketed because he was such a dynamic unpredictable character Heathcliff directly and indirectly acted as a catalyst in destroying the relationships between many charactersThe marriage of Cathy Jr and Linton was not one of bliss and love rather it was one of fear and sadness Heathcliff directly destroyed the relationship between Cathy and Linton by encouraging Linton to court and marry Cathy After Isabelle had Linton Heathcliff made no attempt to contact either of them However as soon as Isabelle died and Linton came to Thrushcross Grange Heathcliff all of a sudden wanted him to come and live
