BERTHOLD AUERBACH On the Height Berthold Auerbach, a German poet and author of Jewish descent, was born at Nordstetten, in Würtemberg, on February 28, 1812. On the completion of his studies at... More > the universities of Tübingen, Munich and Heidelberg he immediately devoted himself to literature. His first publication dealt with "Judaism and Recent Literature," and was to be followed by a series of novels taken from Jewish history. Of this intended series he actually published, with considerable success, "Spinoza" and "Poet and Merchant." But real fame and popularity came to him when he began to occupy himself with the life of the general people which forms the subject of his best-known works. In these later books, of which "On the Height" is perhaps the most characteristic and certainly the most famous, he revealed an unrivalled insight into the soul of the Southern German country folk, and especially of the peasants of the Black Forest and the Bavarian Alps.< Less

Published in 1847 under the pseudonym of Ellis Bell, Wuthering Heights was the only novel of Emily Bronte. It relates the complex history of the love between an adopted son, Heathcliff and his... More > notional sister Catherine Earnshaw. The narrative is heavily influenced by the landscape around Haworth and transfers the harshness of the natural landscape into the relations of its characters. Heathcliffe, alongside Mr Rochester from Jane Eyre, is thought to be heavily influenced by Emily’s brother Branwell. It is a violent and in some ways a sadistic novel, but it also very modern novel that was ahead of its time and distinctly out of place within the other Bronte works. At the time it wasn’t that well received, the violence putting off many critics, but subsequent reviews have highlighted the precedents Emily Bronte set in writing the novel. In plotting, structure, characterisation and for the writing, Wuthering Heights is a highlight in the history of English literature.< Less
