Emily's Journal

Was 'Wuthering Heights' testament to Emily's lost love?

£8.99

Emily's Journal by Sarah Fermi.

Why did Emily Brontë write Wuthering Heights? Was it purely the product of her juvenile imagination? Or did she experience a profound and tragic relationship in her adolescent years which coloured the rest of her life and was the emotional source for both her one novel and heartfelt poetry?

Written as if in her own words, Emily’s Journal explores in minute detail the possibility that Wuthering Heights was not entirely invented; it gives the reader a new and exhilarating glimpse into the social circumstances which kept a young woman from the man she loved. Few biographies of Emily Brontë have reached so far into her mind – interrogating census records, parish registers and wills – and marrying the evidence with the contents of her works.
