Wuthering Heights is according to Suzan Gubar a cultural construct and therefore culture wins over nature as always is the case in such duels These are in fact duels of female flesh and male spirit female earth and male sky female monsters and male angels What is needed in society is to suppress and exorcise these irrational that is female representatives of nature The female rage therefore becomes the central theme of the novel Catherine is the raging female in Wuthering Heights who fell as a result of her tasting the poisonous food of culture The product of this taste of education is here unlike the triumphant self-discovery in the male Bildungsroman anxious self-denial As Catherine doesnt even know her name she cannot know who she is or what she is destined to be Not only do women have to fall but they are due too patriarchal nature of culture already fallen because they are doomed to do so There is as she points out no great difference between falling and falling in love and as a result women seem to be at the mercy of all men Just like Catherine and Isabella they all must suffer or even die I must admit that upon reading her arguments I was rather shocked with some of her suggestions however it woke up my curiosity so I tried to look into it a bit more thoroughly Having read it again I found that the segments which show her attitude most clearly are the ones which have to do with Catherine Heathcliff and the Catherine Heathcliff relationship Therefore I shall next try to sum up the arguments that affected me most She first made it clear that Wuthering Heights is in fact a coexistence of opposites a place where hell can become heaven and heaven hell She continued this point as she mentioned a misanthropists heaven it being a contradiction within itself where Lockwood comes across hate violence
