heroine of Gothic story by making Catherine Earnshaw as …
Though Anne's heroines are more conventionally reticent,Emily' s Catherine Earnshaw harkens back to the passionateexcesses of characters in the Brontë juvenilia. The profoundemotions of Catherine and Heathcliff exceed familiar categoriesand are difficult to label sexual, however. The characters mostclosely approximate consummation of physical desire in theirsingle passionate embrace when Catherine is conspicuouslypregnant with Edgar Linton's child and nearly dead fromstarvation. Whatever sexuality inheres in their bond issublimated in a total, ineffable union. Even so, the intensity oftheir feeling pulsates through the novel, rather like a physicalelectricity investing the work with a sexual aura.

In Wuthering Heights Emily radically transforms theheroine of Gothic story by making Catherine Earnshaw as complexas Charlotte's more realistic protagonists, and also overtlyaggressive and aware of her own demonic nature. Like Jane Eyre's Rochester, Heathcliff owes his diabolic energy and emotionalpower to Gothic lineage, as does the brooding atmosphere ofWuthering Heights. Emily was more willing than Charlotte toconjure ghosts, macabre dreams and hallucinations, and agenerally Gothic aura without explaining them rationally. Herspirits and other supernatural elements succeed partly throughher strategy of employing limited, mundane narrators who arethemselves affected by moods and phenomena which they cannotcomprehend.
