    "Wuthering Heights" is Emily Brontë's only novel. It was first published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell, and a posthumous second edition was edited by her sister Charlotte. The name of the novel comes from the Yorkshire manor on the moors on which the story centers (as an adjective, "wuthering" is a Yorkshire word referring to turbulent weather). The narrative tells the tale of the all-encompassing and passionate, yet thwarted, love between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw.

    The passionate and tragic story of Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff is one of the high points of 19th-century Romantic literature. In the relationship of Cathy and Heathcliff, and in the wild, bleak Yorkshire Moors of its setting, Wuthering Heights creates a world of its own, conceived with a disregard for convention and an instinct for poetry and the darkest depths of the human soul in torment.

    "Cumbres Borrascosas" (título original en inglés: "Wuthering Heights") es la única novela de Emily Brontë. Fue publicada por primera vez en 1847 bajo el seudónimo de Ellis Bell. Su hermana Charlotte editó una segunda edición póstuma. Aunque ahora se considera un clásico de la literatura inglesa, el recibimiento inicial de "Cumbres Borrascosas" fue tibio en el mejor de los casos. Su estructura innovadora, que se suele comparar con un conjunto de muñecas de matryoshka, desconcertó a los críticos en un primer momento.
