Overdue Episode 142: Wuthering Heights

November 2, 2015

Andrew Cunningham Craig Getting

This week we go back to the Brontë well to read Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights, the only novel she published before her untimely death at the age of 30.

Wuthering Heights is about romance, vengeance, catching cold, inheriting property, and the perils of attempting to marry above or below your station – all the hallmarks of a good 19th century novel, in other words. We also talk about Thanksgiving, spelling bees, and Muppet Babies – all the hallmarks of an Overdue episode, in other words.
