Should Wuthering Heights be considered relevant in todays society I say yes Although I must admit I was very close to hating this book not only because of the confusing situations which occurs and my dislike towards all characters but also for much more reasons that I dont wish to point out at this moment for that we shall be here for a terribly long time if I did However I must also admit the context of this book Wuthering Heights have portrayed many relevant themes that are still existing today even as I speak Catherines decision of marriage is one example My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath a source of little visible delight but necessary Nelly I am Heathcliff In this quote Catherine was well aware of her love for Heathcliff claiming that they both have the same souls She had no income or property of her own Her physical comfort depends on the will of her father and brother and the most crucial decision of her life to marry Edgar Linton is determined by the fact that if she were to marry Heathcliff they would become beggars In my opinion this is a case of forbidden love Catherine and Heathcliff cannot be together as their statuses are simply too far apart Many has pointed out that this is irrelevant today as currently we have the freedom to marry whoever we like Statuses and class arent considered as important anymore But is this so That nowadays we could say I do to whoever we desire In the book Forbidden Love by Norma Khouri told on the accounts of a true story in the small town of Jordan there is a much similar situation Dalia a Muslim was in love with a Catholic man called Michael In Jordan it is considered extremely immoral for two people with such different beliefs to be together As a result Dalia was honorably killed
