In 1854 Charlotte married Arthur Bell Nicholls, who had been a clergyman at Hawoth and returned to aid her father. Charlotte died in the following year, having already written two chapters of a promising fifth novel, to be called Emma.
The revenging character, Heathcliff, is a tragic figure who despite his cruel and brutal traits wins a measure of the reader’s admiration.

Wuthering Heights is a monumental work of English literature. Though it has been widely praised, critics cannot even begin to express the full essence of the novel. Not even Charlotte, who wrote the introduction to the second edition, could summarize the full breath of its power.
