Textual Analysis Of Wuthering Heights University Of New Brunswick Essay

562 words - 3 pages

Heathcliff’s return to the story is a key moment in Wuthering Heights that affects many characters in the novel. When Heathcliff first returns, Nelly immediately recognizes his eyes. Heathcliff is described as having “eyes full of black fire” (75) which are symbolic for his mysterious and dark personality.

When Heathcliff shakes hands with Edgar he drops Edgar’s hand and does not speak to him until he chooses to. Heathcliff is not only wealthy now but he is more masculine than Edgar. Nelly describes Heathcliff as a “tall, athletic, well-formed man” whereas...
