Love or lust In real life it is very difficult to distinguish between love and lust This is definitely the case in the novel Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte Wuthering Heights is a tragic love story Emily Bronte tells the story of a love gone sour due to subordinate emotions that over rule love and hate Bronte shows this through Catherines empty love Heathcliffs lust for Catherine Heathcliffs obsessive behaviour and the jealousy displayed within both Heathcliif and Catherine These emotions destroy every relationship in the novel The feelings displayed between Catherine and Heathcliff are neither of love nor hate but rather emotions of lust obsession and jealousy First of all Catherines empty love is a huge example of her selfishness Wuthering Heights is the name of Heathcliffs dwelling Wuthering being a significant provincial adjective descriptive of the atmospheric tumult to which its station is exposed in stormy weatherBronte 4 Wuthering Heights beholds more than tempestuous conditions Wuthering heights is the epitome of ill-natured love Catherine states that she loves Heathcliff however her materialistic desires surpass her so called love And we shall be rich and I shall be the greatest woman of the neighbourhood and I shall be proud of having such a husband Bronte 81 If Catherines love for Heathcliff was genuine she would never have been able to marry into an empty marriage The man she chose to marry Edgar Linton fulfilled her every desire for riches but left her heart vacant and her life tumultuous Secondly Heathcliffs lust for Catherine takes over his emotions of love for her A line from Genesis captures the relationship between Heathcliff and Catherine But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden God hath said Ye shall not eat of it neither shall ye touch it lest ye die Genesis 3 2-3 Heathcliff is Catherines forbidden fruit Her empty heart longs for fruition and is tempted
