The Annotated Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte, Janet Gezari

Those readers who prefer Emily Brontë’s gloriously dramatic and lush novel Wuthering Heights to sister Charlotte’s literary offerings are in for a treat with The Annotated Wuthering Heights (Belknap, $35), edited by Janet Gezari, English literature professor at Connecticut College. This handsome wide-margined volume is filled with art that helps recreate Heathcliff and Catherine’s world of Yorkshire at the turn of 19th century, as well as Gezari’s plentiful notes to help contextualize Brontë’s imagery and allusions. Peppered throughout are facsimiles of pages taken from Brontë’s poems and diary, which is a particular treat, and modern illustrations of the novel’s scenes. Altogether, these realize a bibliophile’s dream edition of this classic, and the perfect gift for Brontë devotees.
