Wuthering Heights
Emily Brontë
Contributed by Karim Chandra
Chapter 26

Catherine and Linton had developed a working relationship where each would travel only half the distance for their meeting. As Linton grew weaker and sicker, he became unable to take the trip. Linton begged Catherine not to divulge the fact that he was unwell to Edgar.  Linton was pale, weak and losing strength with time. Linton becomes more withdrawn, confused, and snappish. Linton was having poor health and getting weaker.


The marriage between Linton and Catherine was against their will. Linton was too sick and inexperienced to romance while Catherine was young and inexperienced to understand the intricacies of relationships. Catherine assumes Linton's illness and tries to love Linton. Linton is too afraid to talk about his feeling because of fear he follows what Heathcliff advice.

Marriage between cousins is absurd too. Heathcliff had a plan that he had to accomplish; he is shrewd and wicked.
