The intrigue surrounding Emily Brontë (1818–48), author of one of the most well-known and loved British novels, still entices fans more than 150 years after the novel’s publication. Emily only wrote one novel before her untimely death from tuberculosis at the age of 30, yet Wuthering Heights (1847) has secured her world-wide fame. Her compelling characters raise new questions on every re-read, and the darkly fatalistic mood of the novel makes it hard to forget.
