Wuthering Heights in Pop Culture
Though the novel is now considered a literary classic, Emily Brontë did not receive such praise at the time of its publishing. Wuthering Heights shocked the public, and critics mentioned it could not have possibly be written by a women. Being rejected by publishers, Brontë had to self-publish the 1847 novel and use a male name, Ellis Bell, as the author. The next year, 1848, she died at age 30 from tuberculosis, thinking that her book was a failure.
It is obvious now the novel has received incredible attention and has captured audiences for years, and it is still being referenced in pop culture all the time. Have you caught any of these modern references in your favorite shows, songs, or movies?
