IMBALANCE IN NATURE Since the dawn of human thought man has sought to define the relationships between all things surrounding him He categorizes every living creature labels every natural element and names every phenomenon He then connects each object to another with a line and draws the line back to himself This way he feels omnipotent confidently grasping the essence of his world in his hands Such behavior seems to have peaked in the nineteenth century when many intellectuals around the world were pre-occupied with defining the relationships between man and the society man and God man and nature and man and man The preservation of order intrigued them and the concept of entropy frightened them Many of the writers from the nineteenth century were also captivated by these relationships and Emily Bront was no exception Although Bronts Wuthering Heights is best known as a tale of tragic love it is also a very provocative study of relationships especially those between social classes Bront creates a microcosm of the upper-class English society in Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange It is a relatively controlled environment until Bront allows factors from the outside world and different social classes to seep into the society Immediately the balance of the two families is disturbed and when the pillars of support the parents disappear the entire society is thrust into complete turmoil From this premise Bront begins to highlight contrasting paradoxical and complimenting relationships between the characters These pairs are formed andor destroyed by the interjection of influence from the outside Wuthering Heights is an incredibly poignant suggestion of the dangers of disrupting equilibrium and in the story serenity is only returned when the disturbing factors are destroyed and nature is allowed to run its course again Bronts narrator Lockwood introduces us to the bleak world of Wuthering Heights many years after Heathcliffs interjection into the natural order Details seem disagreeable from the very start of the narrative
