Wuthering Heights
Emily Brontë
Contributed by Karim Chandra
Motifs are devices or structures that are used by artists or authors to help in the development of a theme.
The novel compares two households, Wuthering Heights and Thrushcross Grange. Brontë shows that all people search for possession. People have a responsibility of aligning with their destinies. People can explore where they belong. Nature presents dreams, visions, and presentiments to help develop the character that can lead to peace and unity instead of being a wandering spirit in the moors like Cathy's. The concept of belonging is a powerful motivator. Hareton ability to impress Catherine with reading just one word is an attempt towards belonging to the literate. People choosing to be mean and selfish are a response to their troubled childhood.
