Abstract Imagery and narrative style are examined in this critical analysis of Emily Bronte's classic novel of passion and death on the Yorkshire moors. Imagery in the novel springs directly from the wild landscape of Haworth-Bronte's birthplace. "The eternal rocks beneath" are compared to Catherine's love for Heathcliff; moths on the heather and flowering harebells reflect Catherine's peaceful resting place in "heaven. "Barrier" images of windows, doors, and gates convey the geographical, spiritual, and emotional isolation of the characters-their rising passion accompanied by narrative descriptions of wild streams and windy cliffs. An interesting segment explains Bronte's use of double narrators to move back and forth in time.
