Ever since its publication, the novel has eluded classification, and its characters and plot have fascinated and bewildered readers for over 150 years. The title is suitable, as "wuthering" is a provincial term used to describe a tumultuous, stormy atmosphere. The English language has rarely been utilized as well as it has here, and you would need to go back to Shakespeare to find its parallel. Romanticism reached its high water mark with this novel.

Unfortunately the thick Yorkshire accent of the crusty Joseph character turned into an unintelligible mess in this actors hands. I'm used to hearing English spoken in a range of accents but a South African trying to produce a thick Yorkshire accent just didn't work at all for me.
