The central point of this story is mostly about Catharine 's and Heathcliff 's admiration for each other which turn out distasteful. At a young age, Heathcliff had been adopted by Mr. Earnshaw, who was at the time owner of a farmer of ‘Wuthering Heights. ' During that period, Heathcliff grew up with Earnshaw’s children, and including Catherine’s and Hindley’s. Also, Catherine fell in love with Heathcliff, but Hindley was jealous of Heathcliff’s close relationship with his adopted parent (Mr. Earnshaw). Eventually, Heathcliff’s adopted father, Mr. Earnshaw became ill and then he later passed away. But, Hindley hates Heathcliff with a passion, which his determination was to have a vendetta against him. Catherine, on the other hands, loves Heathcliff …show more content…
Consequently, he became angry with them and then began to feel a sense of deep-rooted anger, in which progressed to vengeance. Subsequently, Heathcliff became extremely jealous as Catherine was spending more time with Edgar. Heathcliff’s admiration for Catherine started at the beginning of their early childhood, and when he overheard about Catherine’s remarks of not wanting to marry him, which in a sense was a major blow to Heathcliff. Therefore, he was heartbroken because of Catherine’s comments, which he decided to leave ‘Wuthering Heights’ and understandably so, as Catherine’s remarks hurt him significantly. While Heathcliff was away, Catherine and Edgar, in the long run, got married. Shortly after, their marriage was short-lived as they were two different people with a different point of view and values. Their relationship became more complicated upon Heathcliff’s returning to ‘Wuthering Heights.

Thereafter, Catherine gives birth to Edgar’s daughter (Cathy), and sadly, he passed away right after his daughter’s birth. At that point, Heathcliff’s pledges to revenge once again, as he had not gotten over the fact that Catherine’s decision to marry …show more content…
However, what I cannot fathom is the desires of his heart that became so dark, and that he 's solely focused, and entire efforts are to hurt anyone that remotely related to Edgar or even knows of Edgar for that matter. While I do believe Heathcliff’s true love for Catherine’s probably real, but in a sense, I am wondering of his true intention, for what he had become since his focus was to hurt anyone that comes across his path. The issue that I believe is also worth asking, if he truly loves Catherine, why he misled Catherine’s daughter (Cathy) to marry his son. Besides, one obvious answer that has already been noted is that he wanted nothing more than to hurt Edgar who is already dead. The point I am making is how could he certainly love Catherine, when Heathcliff’s real intention was revenge. I beg to differ that his intention was no longer true love. If one truly loves an individual, he or she would never hurt that person or neither his or her sibling for that matter. Another observation is what he did obviously was an integrity issue when he decided to convince Cathy to marry his son, so he could gain and control everything. Although, his loves for Catherine was probably genuine, but it is worth noting that he had lost who ought to be as individual as his emphasis was simply on
