Many readers argue that Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte is anything but a romance Although it does not follow the conventional form of the Victorian Romance novels it can be argued that it is one of the greatest love stories of all time The traditional forms of love may not be represented in this story but one can not argue that love is the predominant theme throughout the book What else but love could possibly drive the characters to the ends which they accomplish The most controversial and the predominant love represented in this novel is that of spiritual love This form of love is the one shared between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw Linton This bond is expressed by Catherine when she tells Nelly I can not express it but surely you and every body have a notion that there is or should be an existence of yours beyond you What were the use of my creation if I were entirely contained here My great miseries in this world have been Heathcliffs miseries and I watched and felt each from the beginning my great thought in living is himself If all else perished and he remained I should still continue to be and if all else remained and he were annihilated the Universe would turn to a mighty strangerNelly I am Heathcliff page 81 It may be hard for most people to understand their bond as very few people ever experience a love of this type during their lifetime The only comparisons that may be offered for an attempt at understanding may perhaps be the bond felt by someone regarding their first love Although this relationship may end a special connection will always be felt for this person and the love that was felt will never be forgotten As many state there will always be a special place in their heart for this person Another example may be the love a parent feels
