Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte



Wuthering Heights


CHAPTER I



1801. - I have just returned from a visit to my landlord - the
solitary neighbour that I shall be troubled with.  This is
certainly a beautiful country!  In all England, I do not believe
that I could have fixed on a situation so completely removed from
the stir of society.  A perfect misanthropist's heaven:  and Mr.
Heathcliff and I are such a suitable pair to divide the desolation
between us.  A capital fellow!  He little imagined how my heart
warmed towards him when I beheld his black eyes withdraw so
suspiciously under their brows, as I rode up, and when his fingers
sheltered themselves, with a jealous resolution, still further in
his waistcoat, as I announced my name.

'Mr. Heathcliff?' I said.

A nod was the answer.
