Discuss the differences between them - language used when they were first presented.

Also look at when Catherine was at TG for 6weeks and came back a perfect young woman

When she says it would degrade me to marry Heathcliff

etc etc

You should also look at the other side - was it there own choice, for instance after the 6weeks she still hugs Heathcliff despite him being dirty etc -> Maybe they just gave in to social class.

Talk about how Heathcliff does not see the social class element as much as Catherine does -> way he acts when she dies, way he doesnt care etc

Have fun!
u got an easy question zizi- am doing it AS and although the book is great the way the teacher decided to approach it is horrible. Step 1: complete summary log for chapter and make relevant comments/ Step 2: answer questions Step 3: oral "test" Step 4 : Essay on a big Chunky topic- she has to be reminded its a love story that went so above all social norms- yet i really dont like C and H- they seemed to be so.. grrr.. but the fact that they are anti-heroes makes it an interesting book to study- i like it alot. By the way i have an essay to do on Catherine's Character and have to hand in tomorrow and we were given no notes at al

i agree with u!!! it REALLY SUCKS!
but at least u r cleva enough 2 get A by not reading it... not everybody is like that....
We looked through it so much in class, finding important quotes and stuff, and I could just sit quietly and copy all the useful quotes and page refs down.

And we watched the film to put all these random quotes in context.

What exactly did you find wrong with it? Its my all time favourite book
I just found it difficult to read, I think it was the way that it hung at certain parts of the story to totally go into far too much detail. Like the dream near the beginning. And I found them so boring and time consuming that by the end I'd forgotten the original context again!

I read about a third properly. Then I skimmed at varying speeds (from scanning through a page for important detail to skipping whole chapters that didn't look very useful) to the end of Volume One. Then I'd had enough.

The dream was vital to showing the blocking out of civilisation and the distinction between the realm of Cathy/Heathcliff and normal 'society'.

Not a true English student my friend.

" The real tragedy of Heathcliff and Catherin is that their separation was brought about not by fate, nor by family, but by the power of social class. " - Catherine was an egocentric person whos actions and behaviour had been predetermined by her family member and society .

I see the reflection of what happened in the Victorian society , sometimes , in the 21st century , when someone I like told me that she wouldn't marry someone as nerdy and low as me .

I read wuthering heights all by ma self . no pun or offense intended .
