LoveReading View on Wuthering Heights - retold by Gill Tavner

This famous story of Heathcliff and Catherine will thrill you and chill you to the bone.  Real Reads bring this and Jane Eyre to a new audience.  Both of these retellings have been checked for accuracy to the originals by the Collections Manager at the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth.  The characters in both Wuthering Heights and in Jane Eyre - Rochester, Heathcliff, Jane and Catherine - will resonate with readers of all ages, whilst the atmospheric illustrations perfectly complement the narratives.

This and the other retellings by Real Reads are a fantastic way to introduce children to some of the best-known and best-loved classics; beautifully presented and skilfully retold (and condensed – 64 pages in total) and illustrated, they are true to the original plot, capture something of the flavour and tone of the original work, while simplifying the narrative and dialogue. Most of them are aimed at readers aged around 8-13 but are also a great ‘quick fix’ for teenagers and adults. This one Wuthering Heights is definitely one best read at no younger than around 11 and is great for teenagers.

Wuthering Heights - retold by Gill Tavner Synopsis

I saw everything. They told me everything. I played a part in everything. Nelly Dean has spent her life serving the inhabitants of Wuthering Heights. She has quite a tale to tell. She wants to tell it to you.


Nelly’s story is as wild and stormy as the moors on which it is set. She tells of haunting, hatred, love, grief, and the desire for revenge. Her tale begins and ends with the mysterious Heathcliff. Where has this strange, silent boy come from? Will you fear him or pity him? What drives the adult Heathcliff to destroy others, even his own son, and to dig in dark graveyards? Is it love or vengeance, or both?

 

This famous story of Heathcliff and Catherine will thrill you and chill you to the bone.

About Emily Bronte

Emily Bronte lived from 1818 to 1848. Although she wrote only Wuthering Heights and about a dozen poms she is accepted as one of the most gifted writers ever. Perhaps the intensity of her writing grew out of the extraordinary pressures of her home life. Emily’s mother died when she was three and she lived with her four sisters and one brother in a bleak, isolated Yorkshire village – Haworth. Her father doted on his only son, Branwell, and expected little from his daughters – they surprised him while Branwell wasted his life and died an alchoholic and drug addict. The girls suffered ...
