Wuthering Heights Comes onto Blu-ray, Today

April 23rd, 2013 by DVDFab_Malcolm 13,793 views

Wuthering Heights, a shining star of the countless classics in the viagra online canada pharmacy history of English literature, comes onto Blu-ray, today. The novel’s author, Emily Brontë, was the second one in the well-known Brontë sisters. Her elder sister Charlotte Brontë wrote one of the greatest novels of all time, Jane Eyre, and her younger sister Anne was the author of The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, which was later accepted as a masterpiece, too. However, Wuthering Heights, Emily’s first and only published work, which is now widely regarded as the fullest expression of her highly individual poetic vision, received mixed reviews when first published, and was considered controversial because its depiction of mental and physical cruelty was so unusually stark.

 

Multiple themes were depicted throughout the novel, majors ones include literacy, solitude, disease and contagion, sibling relationships, and humanity versus nature, etc. The storyline opened with Heathcliff’s tenant Lockwood paying a visit to his landlord. During a subsequent visit to Wuthering Heights, Lockwood accidentally encountered a curious supernatural thing, which piqued Lockwood’s curiosity. Back at Thrushcross Grange and recuperating from his illness, Lockwood turned to Nelly Dean to learn the history of his landlord Heathcliff, as Nelly was a servant who grew up in Wuthering Heights and who knew nearly everything of the Wuthering Heights in the past, which is probably the reason why Emily chose Nelly to narrate the main plot line of Wuthering Heights.

 

Heathcliff, an orphan in his childhood in Liverpool, was brought to, named and raised up at Wuthering Heights by Mr. Earnshaw, a Yorkshire farmer who actually owned Wuthering Heights. Mr. Earnshaw raised Heathcliff with his own two children Hindley and Catherine. With time wnet by, Catherine gradually fell in love with Heathcliff. However, her brother Hindley hated Heathcliff because Heathcliff stole the affection from his father which was supposedly to be given to himself. Hence, Hindley did everything he could to destroy Heathcliff after Mr. Earnshaw’s pass away. Catherine and Heathcliff grew up playing wildly on the moors, oblivious of anything or anyone else — until they encounter the Lintons.

 

 

Living at Thrushcross Grange, Edgar and Isabella Linton were the complete opposites of Heathcliff and Catherine. Catherine was welcome at their home, but Heathcliff rejected. Feeling treated as an outsider once again, a strong desire of revenge began to emerge inside Heathcliff. What made that desire grow faster was Catherine’s switch from Heathcliff to Edgar: she split her time between Heathcliff and Edgar as the very beginning, but soon Heathcliff found that Edgar consumed more of her time, which made him jealous on Edgar. Someday when Heathcliff overheard Catherine telling Nelly that she could never marry him, he disappeared from Wuthering Heights for three years.

… …

The novel has since inspired many adaptations home and abroad, including: a William Wyler directed movie in 1939, a 1954 movie by American director Luis Bunuel, a 1970 British film under the director Robert Fuest, a 1985 movie made by French director Jacques Rivette, a 1992 movie produced by Paramount Pictures, a 1998 film produced by London Weekend Television and directed by David Skynner, a 2004 Italian movie produced by Germano Natali, a TV drama in 2009 shot by Coky Giedroyc, and then another recent movie in 2011 by Andrea Arnold, starring James Howson and Solomon Glave as Heathcliff and young Heathcliff respectively, Shannon Beer as young Catherine Earnshaw. The just released Blu-ray version today is actually the re-release of the 2011 movie in Blu-ray format, which features high definition 1080p video and DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio.
