Wuthering Heights—the Song of Rebel

Cai-yun WU


Wuthering heights is the masterpiece by Emily Bronte. This paper aims to analyze the rebellious spirit in this novel. Almost every character in this novel is filled with rebellious spirit. The author will first analyze the protagonists’ rebellion. Then the minor characters’ rebellion will also be talked about. They rebel against different people. However, to some extent, they are rebelling against the society, the moral system, the authority and so on. During their life journey, they are pursuing the self. Several questions will be answered in this thesis: What are they rebelling for? Why do they want to rebel? What do they get from their rebellion? What does the author want to express through this novel? The thesis systematically presents the character’s rebelling behaviors and the causes; it even tries to probe into the influence of Emily Bronte’s personality on this novel. This paper will, to some degree, widen the research area. Key words: Wuthering Heights; rebel; feminism
