Contributed by Karim Chandra
Chapter 29

Edgar funeral passes and Heathcliff visits Thrushcross Grange with Catherine to accompany her back to Wuthering Heights.  Heathcliff planned to rent the property thus sending away the servants. Linton had acquired the bad habits of Heathcliff. He was heard boasting how he wished he had strength like Heathcliff to mistreat Catherine. Heathcliff boasts to have dug up Cathy’s grave and looking forward to being buried in the same casket. Heathcliff warns Mrs. Dean not to visit Catherine at Wuthering Heights.


The subjects of ghosts revealed from the complex relation of Cathy and Heathcliff. Catherine is boastfull "Campion" while Heathcliff remains the face of violence and abuse. Linton on the other hand only cared about his comfort. He feared his dad hence made an effort not to annoy him. Without pressure from Heathcliff, Linton would be more useless and worthless. Fear motivated him to make efforts to please Heathcliff. It is difficult to please someone who is never satisfied and has different motivations.
