Sobre El Autor

Emily Bronte, the sister of Charlotte, shared the same isolated childhood on the Yorkshire moors. Emily, however, seems to have been much more affected by the eerie desolation of the moors than was Charlotte. Her one novel, Wuthering Heights (1847), draws much of its power from its setting in that mostrar más desolate landscape. Emily's work is also marked by a passionate intensity that is sometimes overpowering. According to English poet and critic Matthew Arnold, "for passion, vehemence, and grief she had no equal since Byron." This passion is evident in the poetry she contributed to the collection (Poems by Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell) published by the Bronte sisters in 1846 under male pseudonyms in response to the prejudices of the time. Her passion reached far force, however, in her novel, Wuthering Heights. Bronte's novel defies easy classification. It is certainly a story of love, but just as certainly it is not a "love story". It is a psychological novel, but is so filled with hints of the supernatural and mystical that the reader is unsure of how much control the characters have over their own actions. It may seem to be a study of right and wrong, but is actually a study of good and evil. Above all, it is a novel of power and fierce intensity that has gripped readers for more than 100 years.

Biografía breve
Emily Brontë was born in Yorkshire, England, one of the six children of Patrick Brontë, a clergyman, and his wife Maria Branwell. She and her siblings wrote fantastical stories together, creating imaginary worlds filled with romantic and military adventures.

At age 20, Emily worked briefly as a teacher before returning home to the parsonage at Haworth, where she continued to write poetry and fiction as well as doing much of the housework. In 1846, with her sisters Charlotte and Anne, under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell," she jointly published a volume of poems entitled Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. In 1847, she published her only novel, Wuthering Heights. She died the following year at age 30 of tuberculosis, a disease that plagued her family.

Reseñas

El señor Earnshaw, dueño de Cumbres Borrascosas y padre de Catherine y de Hindley, adopta a Heathcliff, un niño huérfano. Entre Catherine y Heathcliff surgirán inmediatamente poderosos lazos que irán más allá de la amistad y del amor. Pero Hindley no soporta al intruso y hará de la vida de su hermanastro un infierno. Cuando Catherine, cediendo a las convenciones sociales, traba amistad con su vecino Edgar, Heathcliff desaparece. Volverá a Cumbres Borrascosas convertido en un ser sin escrúpulos, dispuesto a vengarse de ellos y de sus descendientes. Desde los salvajes páramos de Yorkshire, Emily Brontë escribió esta arrebatadora historia de pasión y amores cruzados considerada como una de las grandes novelas de la literatura inglesa. Edad recomendada: a partir de 14 años.… (más)

One of the most powerful and original novels of English literature, Wuthering Heights is a story of grand passion, devotion, and retribution. It is the story of two families of the Yorkshire moors and the adopted foundling, named Heathcliff, who lands among them and irrevocably changes their lives.

Dos propiedades en todo el mundo, dos familias y un páramo, le bastan a Emily Brontë para crear una de las obras mejores y más conocidas de la literatura. Y es que en realidad éste era su universo.

Publicada y financiada por ella misma, la novela fue un fracaso en su tiempo, tildada de bárbara y brutal, apenas sí se vendieron algunos ejemplares, a pesar del éxito que había tenido Jane Eyre (novela que publicara su hermana Charlotte un año antes).

Emily murió de tuberculosis un año después de publicar Cumbres Borrascosas, pero su estrechísimo universo -generado por la época, por ser mujer, y porque todo el dinero de la familia se usó en la educación de su hermano varón (del cual se sabe que se gastó este dinero en bares y salas de opio en Londres)-, no fue tal, sino un universo enorme creado por su genio y por su fuerza.… (más)

Cumbres Borrascosas, de Emily Brontë, una de las tres hermanas Brontë, contiene la quintaesencia de la novela romántica inglesa decimonónica. En sus páginas se suceden los amores apasionados limítrofes con el incesto, los odios agriados que se prolongan durante generaciones, los celos, las apariciones espectrales y las tormentas, todo ello narrado con una fuerza y un brillante retrato de personajes que la han convertido en un clásico imperecedero.
