Abstract

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë is a classic novel that has been critiqued from many perspectives for generations. This canonical text receives new insights when critique is paired with visual aids that demonstrate the complex relationships at play in the novel. This three part presentation will begin with an exploration of the influence of Nelly has as narrator, and how that warps the representation of the patriarchal figure Edgar’s relationship with his wife and daughter. The second will explore the role of the father within the novel, and how it influences various events throughout the novel. The final part will address the role of physical boundaries in the form of gates, doors, and windows, and the separation and confinement that affects other relationships in the novel.
